Informal Attitude and Attire Required

It's time for the Kolste's Hot Buttered Rum Party, and this year's invitation is warm & fuzzy. Literally. 

I tried something completely new and experimental this time: flocked transfers.

I found a company online that will make custom flocked transfers from your designs. Then I had my local printer trim some chipboard into 4.5"x 9" postcards for me. And then I spent about 7 nights, ironing 130 transfers onto the front & back of each postcard. Exhausting, but totally worth it. I love the textures of the flock and the chipboard together.

The flocking was a little more "sticky" than fuzzy and the cards tended to stick together when stacked. So I opted to put each postcard inside of a clear plastic envelope for mailing. Better to be safe than sorry.
