Free-Standing Card... Made Flatter for Mailing!

Christina, from Card Making Magic, shows how to make a card suitable for mailing... without needing a box! She gets rid of the flowers she's known for using (which are way too dimensional in height for the mail). But she still makes a dimensional one, just flatter, and she doesn't lose any of her creative style.

As a double bonus, the card she makes is a free-standing one! Hers is quite large... ...8x8... but you could adapt the measurements and make a smaller one or even a rectangular one (A2 size)! Remember, to add extra postage per ounce
(20 cents in USA) if it's heavier than 1 ounce, and for it to go First Class Mail, it must be within these guidelines:

Height3-1/2 inches6-1/8 inches
Length5 inches11-1/2 inches
Thickness0.007 inch1/4 inch

(I always put a very thin piece of bubble wrap over the "humps"... like the knot
in the bow or pearls or bling, to prevent P.O. machines from ripping
the envelopes and possibly the card!)
