Today’s card pattern was given to me too many years ago for me to remember to whom to give the credit. I’ve recreated it and have included it as a PDF for your enjoyment.
First, print out the PDF onto white card stock and cut out the envelope. Get ready to stamp; you will stamp portions of both sides of the envelope. Start by stamping the two pointed tips of the envelope using the colors prescribed on the stamp set insert. When dry, flip the envelope over and stamp all the way around the cut-out using VersaColor Split Pea, Bamboo, and Green Tea inks. Use the gold paint pen to make a border all the way around this side of the cut-out. Let everything dry completely, then fold the envelope, like shown in the photos.
Second, make the medallion using the sentiment stamp, split pea ink, the one-inch round punch, and the gold paint pen. Mount on a slightly larger piece of purple card stock and then glue to the finished envelope.
Third, make one or more note cards to go inside the envelope. I made a folded one but you could make several single-panel cards for someone to use as stationery, with different sentiments on them. Folded, the face of my card 2.75 inches wide by 2.75 inches tall.
I hope you enjoyed today’s special little note card and envelope. Hydrangea Blooms is one of my favorite peg stamp sets because hydrangeas always remind me of those muted blooms of childhood. I hope they brought up sweet memories for you, too!
