Perfect to use with the Envelope Punch Board is the Envelope Paper! It is the perfect weight (not too heavy and not too light to wrap your handmade cards.) I love this paper. I know someone that uses the paper to line the inside of her cards for a light writing surface.
What colors do you use with Lost Lagoon? I knew I wanted to use Lost Lagoon and decided to also use Rose Red, Pool Party, Blushing Bride, and Garden Green. I love this fun color combination and know I will be using it again. I used these colors and the images from the Gift From The Garden stamp set to create the patterned paper piece to slip behind the focal image with the potted plants.
I used to words from the Crazy About You stamp set to create the fun sentiment for this card. I think this will be such a fun card to send off to brighten someone’s day. With all of the words included in that stamp set it would be easy to change this card out for any other occasion.
I added a bit of interest behind the focal image with the nest of Silver Baker’s Twine. It is just a little touch without adding too much. Leave a comment below on some of your favorite color combinations.
Create a soft background with vellum and get some sparkle over the sentiment. I wanted to add a bit of glitter to this card so I used the Iridescent Ice to emboss the Happy Birthday. The Happy Birthday is from the fun Watercolor Words stamp set. Be sure to scroll down to see the video tutorial on how I created this card.
I pulled out my Crystal Effectsto add the shine to the flag banner placed over the one balloon. The shine is perfect to add a interest to the card front without adding layers or other embellishments. Remember that it does take some time for the Crystal Effects to dry when you add a thicker layer.
I stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum and placed over the patterned paper to soften the patterned paper. I love how this turned out and I cannot wait to use this technique again.

You are in the middle of creating a card and you don’t have to correct color ribbon! Has this ever happened to you? That is exactly what happened to me making this card. I had Pool Party, but it was just not quite dark enough. Be sure to scroll down to see the video tutorial on how to color your ribbon with ink.
The Bermuda Bay ribbon has so much more pop than the Pool Party and it was so easy to do with a sponge dauber and ink. Sponge both sides of the ribbon and let dry. Because I started with Pool Party and not white ribbon, I don’t have to worry about white areas showing through. I love how the ribbon coordinates with the Bermuda Bay sentiment.
Watch the following video to see how to change the color to Bermuda Bay. To see these videos you may have to come to my blog is you are reading this post in a reader.
