Bird in a box-ish!

Ok, so I can't stop using this Bird on a Branch stamp set and the Sweet Pea papers - they are absolutely gorgeous. Unfortunately for you they are not available until the new Mini Catalogue comes out on 1st April!

I really love this design with the fancy fold envelope - obviously you wouldn't want to post it in this envelope, but it really looks impressive!

Inside the envelope is a 14cm square Chocolate Chip card with strips of striped paper at the top and bottom and a small butterfly image, from the same paper, cut out and popped up on dimensionals. The central branch image is from Bird on a Branch stamp set which is stamped in Chocolate Chip and the blossom is in Pretty in Pink. I stamped the bird in Old Olive, cut it out and popped it up with dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Ruby Red.

The envelope is approximately 21cm square with the corners folded into the centre and then folded back on itself. Chocolate Chip grosgrain is tucked under the flaps before they are fastened down with Crystal Brads. Insert the card into the centre, pull the ribbon until the envelope closes and tie a bow at the side.
