More New Goodies!

I've been having a lot of fun playing with my new stamp sets and accessories. This card is a perfect example!
I started with the decorative mini envelope cut out of the So Saffron Patterns designer paper using the Big Shot and Stampin' Up! exclusive Scallop Envelope die. I cut a piece of whisper white card stock to fit the inside of the envelope and stamped it with the birthday greeting from Sincere Salutations using kiwi kiss ink. I added some Riding Hood Red polka dots using the Itty Bitty Backgrounds set. I rounder the top corners with the corner rounder punch and adhered the stamped card stock to the inside of the envelope.
I adhered the envelope to a piece of Riding Hood Red card stock. I attached the riding hood red card stock to a 4 x 5.25" piece of Kiwi Kiss card stock. I decorated the bottom of the kiwi kiss mat using a cheater bow made of the riding hood red and so saffron ribbons from the Dress Up ribbon originals assortment (the ribbons in this assortment, featured on page 178 of the 2009 Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalog, are absolutely gorgeous!).
I attached the Kiwi Kiss mat to the so saffron card base. I stamped a flower from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set (featured on page 106 of the 2009 Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalog for $14.95) in riding hood red ink on whisper white card stock. I trimmed out the flower by hand and added crystal effects to the center of the flowers. I covered the center of the flower with green microbeads, and attached the finished flower to the envelope with a stamping dimensional.

Diane - this is gorgeous! I'm going to CASE it once my Flower Burst embosslit arrives today. (I'm not big on hand-cutting things, so I'll use my Big Shot instead for that added flower)
