The card measures approx. 5 3/4" square. I stamped the Vintage Vogue flourish - I LOVE this stamp! - as a background in Turquoise ink. The patterned paper is from the Cottage Wall DSP pack. I stamped the flourish several times in Celery ink on the white panel. I stamped the flowers using Turquoise and Eggplant inks - I stamped off twice and then I rock and rolled so I got a nice colour variation. I've used a DEET and an embossing stylus to add shaping and dimension to the flowers. Of course, I had to put a 50 on the card! That was made with QuicKutz dies and circle punches and it's popped up. I finished the card front by adding turquoise gems to the flower centres and patterned paper panel.
Then I decorated the inside of the card using Nestie circle dies and more stamping.
The last thing was to decorate the envelope. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig so I could stamp the flourish in a continuous line. I used markers to colour the 'Friends' stamp and I added another pretty flower. I must say I was really happy how this card and envelope turned out!
