I wanted to make a birthday card for my sweet niece and I recently saw some pretty paper bag envelope packages on Pinterest, so I thought I'd use my Cricut and the Spring Flowers stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps.
I used the cute little seed packet from the Grow stamp set and popped it up on a bit of metallic purple thread. The heart stamp is also popped up on foam dots in the middle of the polka dot bow, which I outlined with the new Dylusions white paint pen. Lovin' this!
I've been playing with my Color Burst powders and I found they worked really well on the Recollections resist paper pad I have. You can see this purple and orange resist background peeking out behind the doily.
I had to add this happy little sunshine and cute cloud from the Rain or Shine stamp set. A few beads from May Flaum's 28 Lilac Lane embellishment kit, Attic Findings, created the perfect little butterfly trail around these lovely flowers.
On the back of both my envelope and card I stamped some birthday wishes from the Wish Big stamp set and added a few more stamps, leaving room to write a special birthday message to my niece.
Here's a look at the awesome stamp sets I used on my project:
