Envelope of Flowers

Hi everyone, it's Holly posting today!

This week's challenge is Garden Party, and I've got an envelope full of flowers to share with you today.

I have had this idea in my head for a while, and it's fun to see my ideas come to life.  I wanted an explosion of flowers on a card, and since I bought the Envelope Punch Board tool, I knew I could make an envelope small enough to fit on my card.

I started with the envelope first by using Kraft cardstock and the Envelope Punch Board.  The smallest envelope listed on the board was actually too big for my card, so I experimented with smaller sizes until I got the one that was just right.  I cut the Kraft cardstock to 4" x 4" and then scored it on the board at 1 3/4", and then scored the rest of the cardstock as indicated by the slot on the board. That's how I got this cute little envelope. I glued the three sides of the envelope together, leaving the top open.  I then set this envelope aside while I prepared the rest of the card.

I stamped the gorgeous Tapestry 2 Cover-A-Card (Impression Obsession), with pink ink, onto pink cardstock, and then I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Happy Birthday sentiment (Stampavie), with brown ink at the bottom.  I glued this pink background onto a white mat and then I glued these onto a Kraft card base.

The envelope was adhered to my pink background right above the birthday sentiment.  I then cut out a bunch of flowers using the Miniature Rose (Cheery Lynn Designs), as well as the Tiny Flower Kit die set (Cheery Lynn Designs).  I had fun adhering all the flowers all over the card as well as inside the envelope.

For my final touch, I squeezed a dot of Ice White Viva Decor Pearl Pen in the centers of the flowers.

A great way to send flowers and wishes! Thanks Holly!
