  • The polka-dot pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack provides a pop of color and modern background for the sentiment as well as the envelope flap.
  • Calypso Coral Thick Bakers Twine creates a dimensional border.
  • “Font-tastic!”  The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Greetings stamp set and is stamped in Calypso Coral ink.
