Notecard Set CASE

I saw a beautiful note-card set from one of the Stampin' Up Demonstrators using one of my very favorite stamp sets!  I just had to CASE it.  What is a CASE you ask?  It means Copy And Share Everything.  Many of the demo's are very generous with their wonderful projects which allows others to copy them, and share the amazing ideas they've had.

The set includes 6 note-cards in varying color sets with matching envelopes.

 This is the finished piece with all the note-cards and matching envelopes inside.  I stamped and used another flower embellishment to finish the decoration on the outside as well as covering up some of the ribbon used to close the card set.

 This is the inside view - it's two regularly sized envelopes trimmed and put together, with some decoration on the inside.

Notes on the colors I used - all the leaves are stamped Certainly Celery with Wild Wasabi as the top layer.  The small yellow flowers use Daffodil Delight and Summer Starfruit, the pink flowers use Pretty in Pink, and Primrose Petals.  The rest of the colors for each card below are for the large center flowers.
 The first flower is stamped with Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple as the top layer of color.
 The yellow flower is Daffodil Delight and More Mustard as the top layer.
 These two are retired colors, but SO SO pretty.... Always Amethyst as the base color, and Lovely Lilac to add details on the top layer.
 This darker red flower is a Raspberry Ripple and Bravo Burgundy combination.
 Here for the blue is Pacific Point for the base, and Midnight Muse as the top layer.
 The coral flower uses retired colors as well - they are Cameo Coral base with Calypso Coral as the top layer.

 Here you can see all the cards laid out with their matching envelopes below them.
 Here are two more close-ups of all the cards.

Other materials I used:
126745 Stippled Blossoms - wood
123052 Blessings from Heaven - clear
126151 Friendly Phrases
107311 Note Cards and Envelopes - 3 sets
107301 Medium Envelopes, Whisper White 1 pkg.
Assorted Inks listed above.

**I started purchasing the Two-Step Stamping sets in wood again - instead of purchasing all the stamps in clear - that way I could make a permanent Stamp-A-Ma-Jig template.  It's worked GREAT so far!!  It really speeds things up when stamping.

Your comments are treasured!
