The Melon Mambo card base measures 5 1/2" square. I stamped the Weave Backgrounder in Antique Linen Distress Ink, the leaves in Wild Wasabi ink and the flowers in Melon Mambo ink - stamping three times before re-inking to get different shades of pink. I die cut a stack of numbers and glued them together to give dimension. I snipped between the flower petals, shaped each flower, glued them in place and added a rhinestone jewel to each flower centre.
Here's the inside and the envelope - you can tell I love those ginkgo leaves! I'm very happy to say Elke loved the card!
