Ebosser to the rescue!!!

Ohhh Emmm Geee!!  If you don't have this machine, you need to get it!!!  Quick!!!

Here's what happened....My husband and I were to attend his cousin's wedding this past weekend. As some of you know,  I have been battling a major sinus infection and rhinitis (or however it's spelled) so I wasn't up to making and elaborate card, in fact, hubby went out that morning to wash the car so I just assumed he bought a card.

Okay so I drugged up enough to make it through the day and we get get ready to leave.  Hubby says "You got the card, right?".  I said, "I thought YOU had the card, you know I've been sick!!" (milking it for all it's worth).  Now you may wonder what the problem is, you see, in this family, we don't do gifts at weddings, we give money.  This is how it has always been since I've been married to the man for 27 years! You would think I would keep a supply of cards on hand right? Wrong!!!  I always have good intentions of making that special card. Never happens........thats why the road to hell is paved with good intentions!!! Yuk, yuk!! Anyway, the money is always appreciated.

Moving right along......Hubby said "You know we don't have time to stop!" I looked around and there she was!!!!  Shining brightly and smiling at me!!!  She said ~"Do not worry, I can have that card made for you in less than 5 minutes!!!  Come on, give me a shot!!"

I told hubby that I would have that card made by the time he let the doggy out and got our coats ready to go.  Of course he didn't believe me.  Needless to say even he was impressed!!!

BAM!!!!!  Here it is!!!
Not to fancy, but again I'm sure the couple were more concerned with what was on the inside!!  It fits perfectly into a 5 x 7 envelope too.  White is good right?  Wedding, white, oh well, it worked!!

Threw a congratulations sticker on the inside and signed it.
 
 
Here's the 5 minute process broken down for ya!
8.5 x 11 cardstock.  You will want to use to good stuff for this.
 
Run it through the machine.  Tee, hee, isn't she lovely?
 
Fold
 
Throw some clear stickers on the inside.  I got this stack, along with several others at Marshall's for $1.99. Trust, they come in handy!!

      
 
Got these Martha Stewart Stickers from Marshall's also, $1.49!!
 
And there you have it!!!
