I started with blank cream/yellow card cut to size. Overstamped with a selection of "thank you" text stamps from Anna Griffin. I then cut 2x2 mats from a piece of DCWV summer dreams matstack. The ornate flower is die cut with a Nellie Snellen circle frame centrepiece, stamped with the largest circular flower from the Crafty Individual set with the 2 sparrows on branches(can't find a name on pack?). A single pale blue bling to reflect the soft blue of the dp, and a "Many Thanks" sentiment to finish. I used Tim Holtz "Peeled Paint" green distressing ink pad for all stamping and edging.
Not very successful at making envelopes, and after numerous attempt to find 3x3's in craft shops I was reduced to buying a box of those mini christmas cards from a really cheap shop(69p for 40). So I used the plain envelopes, but jazzed them up a bit by stamping a matching image onto the front of the envelope, then embossing and lightly inking a co-ordinating flower onto the flap. Hope you can make it out on the photo'sIt's a nice touch to stamp something on the back of handmade cards too. I always stamp mine "with love as always" (personalised stamp from "The English Stamp Company") and a tiny Humble Bee(which was the 1st stamp I ever bought).
Enjoy :D XXX
