PostMan Card / Ornament

This card was made to look like a package. We have a new postman and he is wonderful so I made this card for him. The scribble in the left hand corner is where I crossed out my address for the photo. I made it look like a real package with the return address and postage. The postage stamps are courtesy of WishRak (love that group).

These ornaments take minutes to make and they are so cute. I found this idea at Chic N Scratch blog. All you need is a scallop circle punch/die, adhesive and ribbon. For this one was made with the Basic Grey Wassail paper pad. I will be making a few more of these. You don't even need double sided paper for these. If you use single sided paper route your pattern papers like the tutorial says but turn it inside out so your adhering white to white instead of pattern to pattern this way when you fan it out the pattern is on the outside (duh I did the first one backwards wasn't thinking).
Happy Holidays!
(PS. I have some Christmas / Winter photos at my other blog and pictures from Disney On Ice and if you are celebrating the Holidays with a four legged creation there is a cute Puppies 12 days of Christmas poem too at

I love that card. It does look like a package! You know what? We don't even know who are mail person is. We have boxes on the corner where everyone's is together, so we never meet him/her.
