Hello everyone, Richard here.
I love creating a card set that can be ready to go when needed. When you do this, be sure to store them in a nice place. Today we’ll create a card set, matching envelopes and a card holder to keep them safe.

Step 1: Create your background. Grab the Bubble Bubble Stencil and use it as a guide to apply PanPastel to your Whip Cream Cardstock panel. Play with color schemes. You may choose to use one PanPastel color for every card or mix it up.
Step 2: Use the Clear Pigment Ink to stamp the flowers and leaf images from the Peach Blossom Stamp Set on Designer Vellum. Then emboss the images with Journey White Embossing White Powder. Give the images color by brushing PanPastels behind the image. Use the same color as your stencil background.
Step 3: Create a coordinating envelope. Use the same image stamped in a coordinating color as the PanPastel used.
Step 4: After creating a few cards and envelopes create a card holder. Make a 10” x 12” panel from Whip Cream Cardstock. Score the panel in half portrait and then in half landscape. Fold the score lines. Create the pockets by trimming diagonally on the two sides from center score line to the middle score line. Decorate the front of the holder with white-embossed flower images.
Step 5: Finish assembling your cards and envelopes and then place them in the folds of your holder. Close the holder with a ribbon.
Enjoy the Journey,
