  1. I like this card. Sometimes you want to add a little something to sympathy cards and this would be perfect for some. Do you usually mail cards with these flowers or do they lay flatter in an envelope to mail?

  2. I thought it needed just a little color and it is actually going to a man, but his Mother passed away yesterday and I thought that called for a feminine touch.

    I have mailed these and as far as I know they make it pretty well. If I have a pearl or a rhinestone, I will also add a piece of cardstock inside the envelope over the bling to protect it from postal damage.

    The flowers will flatten out in the mail, but if you've curled them, they usually pop back up.

  3. The card is lovely Donna. I love having some dimension to my cards also, and find too that they make it through the mail just fine.

    1. The more I look at this card, the more I fall in love with it. I think I'm going to make some more to have before this paper goes away. I love the elegance of the Very Vanilla with the Blushing Bride and Basic Black
