Flat rate mailers

I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. I enjoyed mine and now its the start of a new week. A reminder that Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks start on Wed. so be sure to check back with me then.
Today I am showing you some flat rate mailers for Christmas cards. I spend a little too much in postage every year with my cards and I am really trying to cut it down a little. I don't want to cut anyone off my list. Now I did cut my list last year and I still spend a lot. So this year my goal is to have the ones mailed less bulky so they are one postage stamp.
Here are two variations that are not bulky but stiill are classy looking. I used my Holly and Doves set from Flourishes. I added a little scoring to them both, some swiss dots to the other and a few brads. Both panels are up on dimensionals. Very simple yet a classy look I think. Hope you have a wonderful day, see you back here Wednesday!

These are gorgeous, Stacy!! Love the colouring job and how you added the Swiss Dots EF to the second one. Thanks for your comments on my blog :D Silly me accidentally deleted them by mistake (all pistons aren't quite firing yet this morning!)instead of publishing them, but at least I got to read them first. Have a great day (((hugs)))

Hi, I see on SCS when you post a card in your gallery, at the end you have a link to your blog on each card, can you help me to do this on mine? I have scrolled thru everything I can think of on there and I don't see anywhere to add that each time I post a card. I have it on my signature when I reply to someone's card but not on my own posts. Thanks, Karen W jkwallace@mchsi.com
