Going to a crop this weekend and plan to work on these cards. Crystal effects ok? Why is it so hard for me to do simple? 😊

thanks for your help....I would say "no" to crystal effects, only because it stated "no" to glitter pens and I would have thought a glitter pen would have been ok. I can totally relate...simple is also very hard for me....have fun at your crop, wish I lived near ya!

I sure this has been asked and answered, but just to be crystal clear ... if we have a heart cut out (punched out), we're okay to put it on the card as long as it's glued down and not popped up, right? It would just be considered a second layer?

Any tips on the best way to package and protect when sending cards in bulk?

I like using the USPS Regional boxes. They're free and cheaper than regular priority postage. The A size holds ~50-60 cards/envelopes. I re-use bubble wrap to pack in the sides and pack the cards in a plastic bag. I've gotten 150 cards/envelopes in the B size boxes.

that is correct, you can add layers of paper, just not the things that are more likey to be pulled off or fall off. thank you for helping and asking!

I wrap mine in tissue paper and send in a padded envie for parcel posts or lighter weight. If I have a lot more I still use tissue paper and mail in a flat rate envie. if you have a huge lot then I would mail in a flat rate box. please let me know if you have any other questions.

I have been working on cards all month and I just mailed 40 out in a flat rate priority envelope today. Winter should have them on Thursday. Nice to be able to send some happy mail! Most of my cards have been posted to the C4AC gallery.

HappyinHawaii (Mom) is sending out 15 cards today, if she didn't get to it yesterday. She asked me to post for her, since her post was on the main thread for 2017.
