From Our House to Yours

I did it!  I FINALLY am going to mail some Christmas cards!  Of course this brings challenges that I am not used to.  I typically give my cards to people.  Sometimes on the top of a gift, or dropped off at a desk at work, or handed over in person at the school.  But mailing?  No way!  (I'm sure some of you are grinning right now ... and I deserve it!) 

You know how I like to layer and embellish!  "Just one more layer of pattern paper."  "Another button would look great in this corner."  Or ... here's a famous one ... "that bow just isn't big enough!"  No wonder I run out of dimensionals all the time!

You'd be proud of me.  I held back and came up with this.  I admit the house is raised on dimensionals and so is the greeting.  The button might add some bulk too.  Our Stampin' UP buttons lay so nice and flat that I hope it's not a problem.  And look, no big bow!  What do you think?  Does the card "lose" anything?

I'll let you know how it goes at the post office tomorrow.  Wish me luck!
