CHRISTMAS FLOWERS IN AN ENVELOPE

Hello everyone.
It's Anita here .Christmas preparations are in full swing everywhere. I am busy with making cards as there is long list of friends and relatives who long for my handmade cards.
My card today has a Christmas feel but its not a regular Christmas card.
I have added my favourite flowers in red and put them all in the beautiful envelope die cut as if its gift of flowers.
So do have a look.








Instructions

The finished card measures 7 inches by 5 inches.
Emboss the card front in an embossing folder.
Distress lightly with shabby shutters distress ink and Memento Angel Pink ink. Distress the edges with Abandoned Coral Distress ink.
Cut a die cut from Dual Stitched Rectangle Die and adhere on to the card front.
Cut a die cut from the Envelope die . Fold and stick in the middle of the rectangle die.
Add some hay fillers inside the envelope and add the flowers and leaves.
To make the flowers, Cut them using the 3D flower die and colour with Abandoned Coral Distress ink. Apply Crackle Medium on the flowers and apply glass glitter. Layer them when dry.
The leaves and green flower are cut from the pattern paper from my stash and then spray green mist on them . Use them when dry.
Arrange all the flowers and leaves as shown. Add a double layer of bow after colouring it with Abandoned Coral Distress ink.
Add a Sentiment.

CottageCutz dies used.
