Mailing Cards

Someone asked a little while back how I mail my cards. I take this into consideration when I'm making a card.

Here is a card I made with the intention of mailing it:

I kept the embellishments simple and the card is relatively flat. I added stitching and paper butterflies as the main embellishments. If the card had something that might get caught in the postal machine (like a button or a gem), I would wrap the card in tissue paper before putting in the envelope.

If I wanted to mail this next card, I'd have to put it in a bubble mailer, which costs more to send. So, this type of card is for hand delivery, or for including in a package.

As you can see, I went crazy with the flowers, knowing that I don't need to mail this card.

Beautiful cards, Erica! Love the butterflies and flowers!
I have such a hard time keeping my cards flat enough for mailing in a regular envelope.....;)
