A Card Made Simple

This is one of my favorite cards to make when I don't have a lot of time or am having a creative block. Simply choose a nice cardstock to start. For this card, I used a piece of Amy Butler cardstock and cut it to fit the envelope. Then, pick some favorite ribbon and flowers to embellish the card. I chose a cream colored twill to match the card, some pink tulle, and two flowers. The top flower has the rhinestone embedded but I also use plain flowers to which I add my own bling. On the inside, I cut a piece of cream paper, stamped flourishes around the edges and adhered it inside. I mimicked this on the envelope as well because, really, who doesn't like to receive a special envelope in the mail?
