  1. Cathy from Maple Park, IL

    Love the red w/black and white look!

  2. Oh Cassandra . . . you are so observant 🙂 I didn’t even think about the blocks. I have used my old non-SU blocks for ages as stands for my photos–at least they had a purpose! My cards often enjoy a little “heightening” (think Seinfeld). I only use the SU clear blocks for stamping . . . they are my “jewels.” So comfortable (rounded edges) and the perfect weight. Hugs, M

    I think maybe if I looked up “creative” in the dictionary I might find your picture there.

  4. Mary, LOVE this card! Thanks so much for the envelope tutorial, too! Have a great day! 🙂

  5. Oh so beautiful!!! I’ve got to remember to make those envelopes. Hugs,

  6. I love it! You always make gorgeous cards and the matching envelope is the perfect finishing touch!

  7. Gorgeous, Mary! Love the envelope tutorial! XOXO

  8. Hi, I always love your blog… such great ideas and creativity shared. I was wondering what you sometimes place your cards on to take your photos? The clear block, it doesn’t look like a SU clear block, but I could be mistaken?

  9. Fabulous! I love the colors! Wonderful matching envelope!

  10. How cute … great card I could make since I have all these punches and die cuts. I will have to use different paper but can’t wait to make one or two or three. 😀 Thanks Mary for sharing this wonderful creation with us. You rock as always.
