Mail 'em Out Monday: Happy New Year!

Welcome to the first project post for my Mail 'em Out Monday series. Today I created and sent a Happy New Year card to celebrate 2015 with someone special.

Mailing Tip: place a sheet of paper between the card front and envelope to help keep your embellishments in place during mailing.

the color: gold neocolor for Happy, black and silver ink
the paper: stampers select white & smokey shadow (PTI*), yellow and silver stripe (SC**-Park Ave Kit)
the stamp: Mama Elephant for SC (Last Call grab)
the embellishments: gold stars (SC-Walden)

*Papertrey Ink

Mail 'em Out Mondays: Introduction

Over the last year, I have spent much of my time enjoying the process of making fun little cards but they never made their way into the mail. In today's digital and direct marketing/mailing age, I think it is more important then ever to give and receive a little HAPPY mail!

This year, my goal is to mail a card out each week and post here on this blog under "Mail 'em Out Mondays". I'm hoping this blog will hold me accountable to this goal and also inspire other card makers to get those handmade cards out into the mail.

Welcome and Happy Card Making and Mailing!
