Stampin' Up! - Party This Way & Inviting
I'm helping a good friend design a party invitation postcard. It's been fun and a learning experience too. The one thing we discovered early on is NOT to use glue stick for the layers if it is a postcard. Going thru the mail really creates a lot of abuse for the card, so by the time it went from AZ to NY on its test run it had started to pull apart. We found that the Stampin' Up! Sticky Strip is an amazing double side tape that will hold up to the being mailed as a post card*.
*Layering your post card may result in additional postal fees. Check at the post office before mailing.
