The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in white cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of
cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take
one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the
middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!

Now, all we need is a couple die cuts. From the nested oval die set cut a larger oval from purple cardstock and a smaller one from white cardstock.

Mount the clear stamp on an acrylic stamp block and ink with purple ink. Stamp it in the center of the white die cut. Glue this die cut to the purple die cut.

Tape 2 Post-it Notes together, overlapping a bit. Using a T-square, place the Post-it Note at 1-3/4″ over from the left. So, you’ve masked the right side of the card, leaving the left side open for lots of stampin’.

Let the stampin’ begin! Stamp the Mini Flower Trio in red ink. Stamp the Tiny Flower in purple. Stamp it again in light green ink. Stamp the Tiny Leaf in green ink. Stamp the Mini Sprig in light green ink, filling in any white areas.

Attach foam tape to the back of the sentiment die cut and adhere to the front of the card, overlapping the stamped border.

For the envelope, stamp the same stamps in the same ink along the flap of the envelope.
