The card today begins with the gorgeous Gold Foiled Flowers Cards and Envelopes in the Mini Catalog.  When you have this as the base, the card is so easy to build.

Card Base

The card base is a pre-made card with a gorgeous matching envelope. Envelopes can be just as pretty as the cards and this one is.  It has a lacy rose edging along the flap.  Having a pre-made card base makes everything else easy.  And when it is gold foiled you have a really nice starting point.  I decided to go a bit outside of the box and do some highlighting on one area of the card.  This idea is also shown on page 14 of the Mini Catalog.  I chose to color in some of the images using Stampin’ Blends.

Stamp Bundle

The stamps and dies used are from the Thoughtful Expressions Bundle.  I love the hummingbird and tried coloring it from a photo a friend took.  My colors are not nearly bright enough, but the softer seems to go with the other colors here.  All of the little floral is from the die set as well.  As is the sentiment layers.  These shapes are a new layering favorite!


The sentiment is from a separate stamp set.  It is the Everyday Details.  I chose this one for flexibility.  This card could work for a variety of occasions.  I tend to not not add an inside sentiment until I know who I am giving the card to.  This is a special card with all of the gold foil.
