While you are reading this....

While you are reading this, alone in a quiet place no doubt wishing you could be stamping, I'm having a blast with my Stampin Ladies at my January Class. We are chatting and laughing and busy at work on Five projects. I showed you one yesterday and here is another:

I have had the scallop envelope Die Cut for quite a while but have not made much with it. I thought the little envelope would be perfect for gift cards or little notes to put on gift bags or gifts but didn't get that far. I decided to put it on the front of a card with a little note tucked inside.

The flowers on this card are from a new 2009 Stampin Up set called Petal Pizzazz. They are bold and positively demand bright colors like Pacific Point, Rose Red, and Tango Tangerine. I added a Pop Up Glue Dot on the center of each flower and pressed it face down into a plastic container filled with White Chunky Glitter from Stampin Up. Sure adds sparkle and fun to it!
The scallop punch from Stampin Up almost fits perfectly around the Tango Tangerine flower (that is the orange one, Kelky) but the other two have to be cut out with scissors. I always get comments from my stampin ladies when they have to cut out a detailed object (they grumble a little when they have to tie knots or bows too but I pretend I don't hear them). On class days when there is a particularly detailed scissor job, I re-inforce them with extra chocolate and they are good to go.

I don't even see an orange flower? I'd say that is more "Mango Margarita Juice Orange" with a hint of salt around the edges. I do like the little money holder on the front. ~Kelky
