cute handmade postcard
these handmade postcards are a snap to make this one came from neil gamans cute black kitties in his books. i have a new love for post cards it is really great to check the mail and get something other than bills. especially when its a great piece of art. i joined swap-bot.com and now im so addicted! i usually find a new craft and make a tun i wont use or whatever so this is a great way to swap out for new fun stuff!
first you need a piece of cardstock i would use good heavy weight cardstock then cut it to standard post car size.
6 1/4 by 4 1/2
then just embellish it however you want i put these cute kitty transparencies on it and then stuck down some letter sticker and drew in the chat bubbles.
also i wanted to finish my front since our post office is just brutal on things i didn't want this to fall apart in the mail. you can put packing tape over the top to seal this one i used some laminating sheets and stuck it to just the front with my heat gun.
you don't want to laminate the back well i guess you could after you wright in all your stuff on the back. i don;t think laminating will alter how you can send it but you just might wana check. usps is odd.
for the back you want to put a line down the center at 3 inches in don't draw it all the way down the post office needs about 1/2 inch at the bottom for there tracking info stuff then just add your send to address on the right and your letter on the left! and your done!
