I stayed true to the colors, even though I kind of wanted to substitute Soft Sky for the Pool Party. This combo made me think: flowers, stems, and sky. So that is what I made! (With pictures, there is a fine line between accurately representing the colors, and not washing out the white parts of the card - sorry.)
The leaves were also made with the flower punch - I just cut the "petals" apart. The stems are very thinly cut strips of cardstock.
The flowers and sentiment are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Had to make a pretty envelope! This way of decorating an envelope just requires Snail and Paper Snips - no Big Shot or special tools.
Operation Write Home is always in need of more "miss you" cards for soldiers to send home to friends and family. Learn more about donating cards here. This card will be headed their way once I have a decent amount of cards to send.
If you would like to donate, but don't have time to get envelopes, follow all the rules, etc, feel free to send cards (or card-fronts from swaps and whatnot) to me. However, please make sure you at least take a look at their deadlines; i.e. don't send me any Christmas cards at this point in time. Write a comment below or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give you my mailing address. Thanks! :)
