This floral card can be for any occasion like Mother's Day, a birthday, congratulations, an anniversary, Hello, or Just Because, but I made it as a "Feel Better Soon" for a friend who isn't feeling well right now.
This is an easy to make card that doesn't require a lot of time and can be made with items you may have already at home. Plus it is much more thoughtful than buying a card off the shelf in stores.
Total Time: 15-20 minutes
Yield: 1 card
That's really pretty!!
Aww thank you!!
Very attractive. I've made similar cards, but I found that anything that protrudes from the card (such as the beads) will not go through the post office's machine. All letter mail goes through a machine with a slot in it. If anything protudes, they have to hand-stamp it, which costs about $1 extra postage!!!!
So...you either have to hand-carry your work of art to the post office to pay the extra postage, or mail it at the standard 48 cents and they'll get around to returning it to you for the extra postage.
There are so many, many things I'd like to craft, but the cost of special postage prohibits my mailing some of my creations.
Thank you for the heads up!
This is a card I gave physically, but yes postage I would expect it to be a little more. I think maybe first class in a mailer envelope at $3.50 and maybe add something else to ensure the card goes safely since I wouldn't want the card to go in the machine.
