POP OF PERSONALITY:  Add three Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels as shown. 

Tie a bow of 1/4″ Copper Trim.  Adhere with a Mini Glue Dot. 

For the perfect polish – Use an envelope liner die (Beautiful Layers Dies), a die-cutting and embossing machine, and the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper to create an envelope liner.  Adhere to the inside of a Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Medium Envelope with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
TIP: To avoid embossing and plate marks, I dedicate a relatively clean bottom cutting plate for envelope liners.  Flip the pattern over and cut on the opposite side.  You can use a bone folder to help soften any lines.
