Fortunately, it did reach its destination, just a few days late with an explanation from the post office. I've gone back to using the regular computer adhesive labels to play it safe. If I use a cardstock label again, I must remind myself to brayer or burnish it as well.
That's the sort of situation I love putting the card/envelope through a cuttlebug or any other manual die cutter that exerts pressure. One slow pass all the way and the two taped together pieces of card stock and they are pretty much forever joined.
