Delicious!  I focused on two new Stampin’ Up! 2013-2015 In Colors that sound good enough to eat, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding.  And, how about that flirty Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim?  Yummy!

I indulged in the Stampin’ Up! Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper for both the pattern above and the envelope.  The envelope was created using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Diagonal Plate.  Here’s my score and measurement chart to create an envelope for a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (A2) card (and more).
