The Impossible to Mail Card!

I love big fat things....like big fat chocolate chip cookies....or big fat pieces of chocolate....but big fat cards just do not mail well, do they?  But sometimes I just can't resist!

Here is an example of an impossible to mail card:
Actually, I could put it in a padded envelope and it would be fine....but I don't know that it would do well in a regular paper envie.  You know?
When I was at the new to me stamp store the other day I picked up this wonderful little scalloped edge Dienamics die which made the center flower on my card.  It's one of those where you roll it up to make a 3 dimensional flower...and it is so cute.  I couldn't resist cutting some Papertrey Ink wool felt out with it....and then the smaller flowers were cut with one of the Paper Trey Ink's Flower Fusion sets.  The sentiment is Papertrey Ink...stamped on a piece of cardstock with some Close to My Heart ink and then the ends were punched with a large scallop.  *Cute idea, if I say so myself! The frame is a Spellbinder.  I added a few Hero Arts pearls, tied a little cotton floss into a bow and secured it and that was it!  The card base is Papertrey Ink cardstock (LOVE THAT STUFF!...it's so wonderfully sturdy!)

Simple and "relatively" fast! :)


  1. Love those flowers, beautiful! Great colors too. Padded envelope or sometimes just putting a card front over the front of the card once inside the envie will work. I think with the felt you would be okay.

  2. The felt flowers are pretty. Especially like the center flower & color.

  3. Susan, this is a lovely card, I love the rolled up flower and the side flowers and hero arts pearls. I also fell in love with the stamp set you bought and how you made the tree with all the envelope leaves, the card came out great. Hugs always!
