Let's Go Fly A Kite...


I'm having so much fun with these
TRIANGLE ENVELOPES!

My son took one look at the JUMBO size and
said they reminded him of
KITES.

I took that as a challenge. HA!

Most of you know I also enjoy making
KITE CARDS.
(View the video tutorials...
and HERE.)

So of course, I had fun creating a
KITE CARD for my
TRIANGLE ENVELOPE!


The thing is... the kite's diamond shape
makes the envelope larger than a
typical Triangle Card would make it.
So to keep the Kite Card at a reasonable size
(not sasquatch huge and not teeny tiny either),
the envelope ends up being about 7" in length...

which calls for quite a bit of postage
(insert sad face).


This particular Kite Card was created from
a 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" piece of card stock
to fit into a Triangle Envelope
created from a 7" x 7" piece of DSP.

Postage was a bit less than $1.

Let's face it... how many things do we find for $1 and
think it is a bargain?!
Isn't it worth it to
MAKE SOMEONE'S DAY
for just $1?!

Yes, it is.  I assure you!


Be sure and visit tomorrow and
I will be sure and post a photo tutorial
for both the
KITE CARD
and the
TRIANGLE ENVELOPE
seen here in this post.


Now... GO FLY A KITE!
(insert smiling face again)
