I was commissioned to make today's card and the brief was purples and orchids (I have obscured the name - there isn't a random oval on my card!). I was assured by my botanically-minded friends that one of the stamps in the Happy Watercolour stamp set is an orchid so that part was easy.
I loved the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper when it was released in a promotion back in 2010 so I was thrilled to find it is still available as a download on My Digital Studio (so you can print out as many sheets as you like for just £3.50) - how great is that! I was also able to print out frames for matting in a matching purple (Orchid Opulence - again retired).

The base stepper card (template above) was cut and scored using Rich Razzleberry card and the layers added. The floral image was stamped in Black Stazon ink and coloured using Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive markers and a Blender Pen. The layers were cut using the Ovals Collection Framelits.
The sentiment was printed out in Rich Razzleberry and decorated with flowers from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack set and Pearl Basic Jewels. A piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon was tied in a bow and topped with a piece of Rich Razzleberry Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.
I made the coordinating envelope using the Envelope Punch Board - such a great tool - and a handmade envelope finishes off your projects nicely.
