Miniature Floral Notelets

Hello again, fellow crafters, how has your week gone? I can't believe we are well into July and I'm having to think about getting ready for heading off to Scotland to visit my parents and sister at the start of August. Be nice to get away - and into the sea for some chilly swimming!

A while ago I was commissioned by my mother in law for some cards, birthday and others. I've finally finished my commission with this lot of little notelets. I've been so taken with the Clearly Besotted miniature florals collection, I've been inking them up and colouring them in at every opportunity!

These were the panels I had created, each with three of the images stamped in Versamark onto half a piece of Tim Holtz water colour card stock, embossed with Wow! Bright white embossing powder and coloured in with various Spectrum Aquas. I did have one panel I coloured in using  my new Zig Clean Color Realbrush pens, but I'm not having a very happy time with them - I prefer my Aqua markers - and so I redid it.

It was simply a case of trimming the edges to fit across the front of a 4x4" card (cut down from my 6x6" pre-scored cards) and adhering them with fun foam covered in red tape.

As I didn't have any envelopes small enough, I got out my WRMK Envelope Punch Board and had fun making my own. I think they look really rather sweet as a set.

Supplies: Clearly Besotted Miniature Florals Stamp Collection; VersaMark Ink; Wow! Bright White embossing powder; Spectrum Aqua Markers - Floral, Primary, Essentials; WRMK Envelope Punch Board; Bazzill Basics card stock; Fun Foam; Red Tape; Pre-cut and scored card blanks

I'm pleased to say that my mother in law loves them and has commissioned another set. Hard work pays off!

Thank you so much for reading and following my crafty journey so far. Enjoy your weekend :)
