Tag suitable for mailing

I tried another Tim type tag, with the idea that it could fit into a normal envelope for mailing.
I love this background paper from a•muse studio - the print is small enough that it looks like book text, but it has "T'was the Night before Christmas" written in paragraphs on it, so you never have to worry about strange text showing.  It has a nice ivory color, which looks good plain or burnished with distress ink, like I did here. all the stamps here are a•muse studio, too. I used the Blended Glitter and the Faux Vellum technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter; the burnished emboss resist is a basic Tim Holtz technique.  The framed sentiment is from CTMH.  It has a little dimension from pop dots, but nothing that would upset a postal machine.
