Welcome back, crafty friends! For today’s card, I am using a few fun images from THE STAMP MARKET, as well as some SPELLBINDERS FLORALS and a few little envelope images from the latest BRUTUS MONROE Inspiration Box. I think its fun to mix up my stamp sets sometimes and create something unique!
I started this card by stamping out all the images you see on the front. Each individual image is stamped and fussy cut. I colored in the florals using just two colors of STYLEFILE MARKERS- pink and grey. I also used this coloring technique on a few recent blog posts.
Once everything was stamped and fussy cut out, I arranged them on the front of my white cardstock card base. I wanted to nestle that cute mailbox right in among all these gorgeous flowers. Then, I tucked a few of the Brutus Monroe envelopes in behind the flowers to continue the happy mail theme.
I also used my PINSTRIPE BACKGROUND STAMP from The Stamp Market to stamp a striped border to add to the bottom of the card front. I think this added such a fun detail that really went well with the colors and the florals. Who doesn’t love stripes and florals?
I wanted to continue that pinstripe pattern, so I also used this background stamp on my envelope insert. My envelope here is cut using and SVG file on my Cricut. I cut the envelope from black cardstock, and then also cut the insert- this time on white. I just added the insert into my MISTI and then stamped the pinstripes using my RAVEN DETAIL INK. I love how the coordinating envelope turned out!
To finish off this card, I added some pretty clear Nuvo sequins here and there. Every card deserves some shimmer, right?
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope you enjoyed this simple but pretty little card and envelope.
Until next time,
