Using one of the adorable Fresh Cuts note cards, I stamped the front using my Paisley Background  in Chocolate Chip.  TIP:  Please remove the die cut petals after you stamp, otherwise the pattern will stamp through to the inside of the card.  Seems obvious but I have to confess, I blew it.  I added some Soft Sky card stock as an insert to cover it up.   TIP:  To be extra safe, slip some scratch paper inside the card so that when you stamp the front, nothing can get through, even with the die cut petals in place. 

I snuck some striped Afternoon Tea Designer Series Paper (Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog) behind the die cut opening and topped things off with a couple flowers in Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip Textured card stock (created with a Boho Blossoms Punch) and a 1/4" Soft Sky Textured circle for the center.

The sentiment from Fundamental Phrases (this text is great for wedding, anniversary) is inked in Chocolate Chip and stamped on Whisper White card stock.  A small Oval Punch snaps it out along with a large oval in Soft Sky Textured.  A little distressing  with a handy Cutter Kit tool roughs up the edges.  Two Hodgepodge Hardware Brads (Pewter) accent the sides.  Stampin' Dimensionals bump things up.  Soft Sky Double Stitched Ribbon adds a final touch to the card.

The envelope showcases some of the same Afternoon Tea Designer Series Paper (Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog).  TIP:  To customize a envelope flap, adhere patterned paper on top (outside).  Flip the envelope over and trim the excess with good scissors.  I used my Paper Snips.  The last detail was a snap of a 5 Petal Punch with a Chocolate Chip Boho Blossom on top.
