No Tools Lily

This lily, including the leaves, was made using the no tools method. I coloured the petals and leaves with Whispers watercolour markers, using a photo of a lily as a guide. The ends of the stamens have flocking on them.
The backing uses Bazzill card, with the ovals cut using Nestability dies, and the embossing done with a Cuttlebug and the Textile folder. It's ridiculous how long it took me to tie the bow and get something I was prepared to put on a card - now I remember why I don't normally do them!

This is one of my favorites! So beautiful. Am I right to think it was never destined to see the inside of an envelope? How would you send it? I know padded envelopes are good but would you restrict this sort of card to "in person" only? Just wondering how to manage getting the cards to the person they were made for.
Thanks so much for sharing your work!
