Envelope Love - Stampin' Up! Full of Love

   I can't resist a mini envelope whether in stamp or die form.  Every other year or so Stampin' Up! has a die set that has a mini envelope and every time I buy it because they are just so darn cute!  I'm feeling the same thing for the Full of Love stamp set with the 2 cute envelope images.  My card today features just the little addressed envelope without the floral surround.  It's super easy to stamp the envelope and cut it out to use without the flowers.  I love images that are versatile like this!

  I paired the cute envelopes with The Color Hues challenge.  My stamping friend Nanc' runs this challenge and the design team always has fabulous samples with great design ideas!  This time they are playing with Red & Aqua!  I almost went for a Christmas card with these fresh colors but my one current Christmas set wasn't doing it for me so I switched to the envies!

  Just a sweet little card sending someone a hug!  I started with a Basic White card base then added a piece of 2022-2024 In Color DSP in Sweet Sorbet in a nice polka dot pattern.  I think Sweet Sorbet is one of those in between colors; it can go to the pink side or the red side depending on how you use it.  

  I stamped 5 envelopes and cut them out and then colored in the little heart stamp in either Coastal Cabana or Sweet Sorbet.  I adhered them across the edge of the DSP.

  To bring a bit more Coastal Cabana to the card I added a narrow strip to anchor my sentiment and added a bit of Sweet Sorbet baker's twine.  The sentiment is from Through It Together and is die cut with a retired Tasteful Label die and matted with a Basic Black circle for contrast.

  To bring just a bit of sparkle to this card I carefully added some Dazzling Details to the hearts on the envelopes and one Iridescent Rhinestone to the sentiment.

  Don't forget to mail out all those cards you are making and send someone a paper hug!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
