Upsy Daisy Thank You

Good Morning! Today's share is yet another one of my Christmas thank you cards. I wanted fairly simple, flat & easy to mail cards and I think this one fits that description. At least I'm hoping so, guess I'll find out at the Post Office!
I used Ruby Red, Whisper White and Basic Gray for my cardstocks, along with the Ruby Red DSP Hostess Level One pack, Ruby Red Ink for the daisies and Basic Grey for the sentiment. Two Oval punches frame the sentiment and the eyelet border punch adds a bit of texture. This card would also look great with a brad or two, but as I mentioned I'm trying to keep it down to a fairly flat, easy to mail card.
Thank you for dropping by and happy stamping!!!

You may know this already, but I fold my cards inside out before I place them in the envelope. I find it protects my cards better when I've used brads, ribbon, or dimensionals (I've had a few shredded in the feeding machine the post office uses...arghhh!) AND I sometimes save the extra 20 cents of postage :)

I thought my friends would think I was strange, but I got quite a few phone calls after I started sending them this way. They knew instinctively why I had done it and congratulated me on my genius intelligence (hee hee hee...I learned this inside out tip from someone else's blog!)
