Holiday postcards revealed!

I figured some folks might be interested to see some examples of these holiday postcards I made this year, and which I've written about here several times. So here are scans of some of them.

Christmas trees on a funky blue plastic film background Christmas trees on a funky blue plastic film background Sadly, this one, which looks really cool in person, suffered from some sort of reaction between the plastic film and the glue and the paper, and so it curved so drastically that I didn't want to put it in the mail. It isn't even remotely close to flat. I kept it and pinned it to my cork board (with pins keeping it flat) above my desk, so I can see it every day.

So ... cool? Or am I the only one who thinks so? I had an incredible amount of fun with the project, and I'll definitely do something similar again. I'll have to find some stronger glue first, though!
