Hello there! I want to share a pretty little card holder that I made for my Hostess this month. It features the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Flowering Fields and Wildflower Fields DSP. Both are choices that you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase:) I also used the Watercolor Wishes stamp set for the sentiments.

Inside holds a set of 4 sweet notecards with coordinating envelopes. I used the Big Shot and Envelope Liners Framelits to decorate the envelopes.

I stamped a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Basic Black Archival ink for the sentiments and flowers. The ink is waterproof and holds up to coloring the flowers~I used Blender Pens with Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey and Old Olive ink.

I cut the DSP in several designs and wrapped baker's twine around the DSP and tied a bow before adhereing to the Notecard bases. I used Crushed Curry & Old Olive Baker's Twine.

I adhered the DSP to the Notecard bases using SNAIL and added banners in coordinating DSP which matched the envelope liners for each card.

I added Dimensionals to the back of the cardstock and attached to the card base. The Note Cards & Envelopes come with 20 of each, so you could make 5 sets of these notecards with 1 package.

For the card holder, I started with a piece of DSP measuring 8 1/2" x 8 1/2". I used the Envelope Punch Board and punched & scored it at 3 1/4" and at 4", then rotated it around, scoring & punching along both lines.

You'll want to trim off the little squares on all 4 corners so the box will fold.

A thinner candy bar like a Hershey's bar would have worked a little better to have a flatter card holder, but I wanted to give her the good stuff:)

I added the notecards & envelopes on top and folded it up. I had to add a bit of Fast Fuse on the top flap to keep it shut since I used a bulkier candy bar.

I wrapped a belly band around the card holder measuring 10" x 3", scored at 2 7/8", 3 3/8", 7 1/2" & 8 1/8". I used Fast Fuse to adhere together. For the tag I used a piece of Old Olive Cardstock and ran it through the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I stamped the leaf images with Old Olive ink, stamping off on the sides. I stamped the flower image in Basic Black Archival ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and again colored it with Blender Pens and Calypso Coral & Old Olive ink.

I cut it out with my Paper Snips and added a couple strips of It's My Party Washi Tape. I added the flower on top with Dimensionals and used the Washi Label Punch for the sentiment. I stamped it in Watermelon Wonder ink and used a Bone Folder to bend the center slightly. I added SNAIL to the ends and adhered over the flower. I finished it off with a luscious Watermelon Wonder Stitched Satin Ribbon bow from the Occasions Catalog. I attached the tag to the ribbon with a piece of Crushed Curry Baker's Twine. My Hostess loves flowers so hopefully she'll be happy to receive this~and the chocolate can't hurt:) Make sure to come back tomorrow to see one of my February creations for the Creative Crew Gallery. Thanks so much for stopping by!
