    I love how you made this card but it looks way to complicated for me and I don’t have a die cutter, scoring board or bone folder. It is very cute but with that little box on the front of the card can you just mail it like that or do you have to put it in a special envelope and pay more for postage? Enquiring minds want to know! LOL Leave it to you guys to come up with something clever for a card.
