Default Idaho: can Birthday Card have writing on inside?

Hi, everyone! Apologies if this has been answered or if this is in the wrong place, but I can't seem to find an exact answer to this anywhere and I want to be 100% sure.

I have a pen-pal in the Idaho prison system and his birthday is coming up. I know that the rules include greeting cards not being larger than 8x10 or laminated, padded, multilayered, or musical. I was just curious if the card I got was alright to send since it has writing on the inside? Overall, it's a pretty basic card with a white envelope (not sure if colored ones are okay!)... I've attached a photo reference.

Thank you in advance! I want to help celebrate his birthday any way I can and thought the card was really cute.

Hello I'm not familiar with Idaho DOC's policies, but I did look up their mail policy. There is no mention of not being to send cards with writing inside, but you can always call the mailroom and ask. I don't see how or why they forbid cards with writing in them....even blank cards are (hand)written in before mailing. Welcome to PTO
