Postcard Pandemonium!

Jane's dare this week is to make a postcard... and actually post it! I decided the only way I was going to be sure to keep all the bis stuck on through the post was to use a laminator, so I went shopping!

After a few tests I realised the plastic was strong enough to support quite delicate edges so I didn't have to stick to a plain rectangle... yippee!

I used Fiskars Scallop scissors, CropODile for the holes, K&Co Paper, Gelatins, Autumn Leaves & Doodlebug stamps and doodling.

The back is stamped too...

Im going to use a CD pen to write on it, I tested it and it's permanent so it won't wipe off in the post bag!
