Glam it up with glitter

Oooer, two posts again today! It's 'cos I want to catch Hazel's Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Number 63, which is 'Glam it up with glitter'.This card is really such a cheat, but I couldn't bear to throw away a glittery card from Christmas 2011 so just did some chopping and layering onto gold mirri card then onto a cream card. Ha, the work will come when I need an envelope as it had to be made to a very non-standard size to accommodate the size of the image. Maybe not such a time saver after all:
I resisted adding anything else to the card - it looks elegant as it is to me so best not to make it into a bit of a dogs dinner!

You're right, this is verrrry elegant! I couldn't have chucked that image, either - and, besides, recycling is a Good Thing! Great card!

It's lovely Di! Couldn't have tossed that image either.

In the US square cards require extra postage. A while back I saw some square cards for sale at a craft sale. The sign said Square Cards No Extra Postage Required. The cards were 5 X 5 the envelops were 5 X 7. They had stamped the borders of a 5 X 7 piece of light weight card stock to match the actual card and made little slits to hold the card in place on it. I thought it was a great idea for getting around the PO. Could you try something like that and save yourself the trouble of making an envelop?
