It’s a regular 5-3/4″ x 4-6/8″ Stampin’ Up! envelope. After sealing the envelope, I cut a 1-1/4″ off the end. Set this piece aside as it will function as your top. The bottom portion of the envelope is what you will stamp. I used Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight stamp pads along with the Stampin’ Up! Secret Garden Stamp Set. After you stamp the bottom portion of your envelope, you’ll run it through a crimper. This makes the stamped portion of your envelope smaller so you can fit the top of your envelope over it. It’s super cool! And, because it was an envelope and you sealed it and cut the top portion off… you now have a pocket.
Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of gumball green card stock and a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of whisper white. Be sure to stamp your whisper white card stock before gluing it to the top of your gumball green card stock. Don’t forget to add your itty bitty flowers and a few jewel rhinestones. It just adds so much!
I used a big shot die and silver flashing to add the stunning, stand alone flower. Love it! I used temping turquoise and daffodil delight stamper write markers to color the Stampin’ Up! A Round Array Stamp. I used the 7/8″ circle scallop punch to punch it out. I love it!!! I hope you enjoyed it too. Please feel free to share your comments and feedback.

Beautiful card.cant wait to try. I just have to say ,I found you on utube today,and have been
Watching a lot of your videos.I am so impressed with all the stuff you make.thanks for sharing.
Brandy, beautiful card, Instead of metal flashing I used soda can just turn inside out or it you use Arizona Tea can, some have great color just have to watch about words.
That’s a super idea Debby!!! Thanks for sharing. I’ll give it a try 😉
I just love this card , haven’t got this stamp set yet, but it is on my list.
What a fun card! I love the bright summer colors! Thanks so much for sharing.
Just wondering if the crimper was a stamp’n up item in a past catalogue, love the look of that texture, but cannot find it in the new catalogue.
Yes, the crimper was in a prior catalog. Sorry about that! I have a hard time letting go. Let me know if you need help finding one. It would be a great addition to your craft room. Hugs, Brandy
Love this card, the colors you used are so marvelous.
Thank you Kindly Carolina!
This is such a beautiful, clever card! Thanks so much, Brandy. I too would like to know what the weight and type of flashing you used. Love it. Thanks again.
I purchased the silver flashing from Lowes. I honestly don’t know the weight. I bought a ton because I use it often. FYI… its fairly expensive. Hope this helps! Brandy
I used an empty coke can with lid and bottom cut off and hand punches. Worked great! These cans are much thinner than flashing and I always have them on hand.
Thanks for sharing. That’s a super idea!!! Hugs, Brandy
Great card and a lovely colour combination. I use silver foil tape – you get it from the DIY shop, it’s sticky and on a roll like gaffer tape. I stick it to card stock and then run it through the big shot, it’s just as effective and much kinder to your machine and dies
Yes, I too love the silver foil tape. Sometimes you can purchase it in home improvement stores too. Thanks for sharing your idea with us! Have a great week! Blessings, Brandy
I have a question about the flashing as well. This paper crafter made metal garden tags and when others tried to case it they accidentally broke their big shot. (Gasp) so, before I make this card can you tell me what and where you bought the flashing. Thanks!
YIKES! Broken Big Shot… That’s not good. Ya know… I have been using flashing for as long as the Big Shot came out 3 years ago. I am still using my original machine and have never had a problem. I cut many many mixed media products. With that said… I certainly don’t want anyone to break their machine. Its important to only use one layer of flashing. You can purchase the flashing at a home improvement store. You can also purchase silver foil tape for another option. Lastly, you could use a coke can like Sandi. Hope this helps! Brandy
Clever, clever lady. I too would like to know where you got the silver flashing. Is it the stuff they use on roofs?
Thanks so much! Hey, how are your goodies? Are you enjoying them all? I hope so. I’ve been thinking about you. Hugs, Brandy
Great card! Where do you get the silver flashing?

Wow…wow…WOW!!!! LOVE IT!!!! Think I can see a “casing”…love the color combination!!!
I love this card and the colors are so pretty together. The metal flower is cool and I will need to try it.
Brandy, Love the silver flower….You have such innovative ideas… Was it hard to cut the flower on the big shot? Can’t wait to try it.
