Yee haw! I love fun mail.
As a companion to the fun, country wedding invite I created for Cassie & Brandon, the couple wanted an equally-fun rehearsal dinner invitation. So, I designed this simple, oversized, boot-shaped postcard.
I had the fronts and backs printed on kraft paper and then I spray glued them to a piece of heavy-duty chipboard. It gave my fingers and wrists a workout to cut the boot shapes with an exacto knife, but there were only 20 so it wasn't too bad. It helped to drink a glass of wine or two. (That rule pretty much applies to all of my projects.)
Oh how I love sending cool, unusual mail pieces. Each postcard will need an extra 45¢ in postage, but they're so worth it. And this one definitely has the fun & flavor of the engaged couple too. They really know how to kick back and have a good time.
