Instructions: Cut a piece of Creme cardstock at 8 x 8 inches and put a mark on the top of the paper on 4 sides at 4 inches, 4 3/4 inches, 5 1/2 inches, then score 3 sides of the paper from mark till mark. Fold all the score lines, cut some pieces out and make 2 tabs for gluing the box together. You can round some corners with an envelope punch board, but you don't have too. Cut some paper from the paper collection and mat the box on the inside and front, now fold a piece of the Cream cardstock double and put your envelope on top of it against the fold then take a pencil and draw the envelope on the paper, cut it out and glue this behind your envelope, so you can use this as a card. Ink all the edges with the Vintage photo.
Stamp the Coneflower from the Blossoming Coneflower set, the Backyard Blossoms set and the Garden Edge Cone flower with Rich Cocoa on white cardstock. Color them on top with Tangelo and then Sunflower yellow and a mix of Buttercup and blend this in each other, the other coneflowers are colored with Vibrant Fuchsia. Put some glue on the tops and sprinkle the decorative sand on them for the pollen.

Stamp the sweet peonies on white cardstock with potter's clay ink, color with morocco and peanut brittle and cut them out with coordinating dies.

If all your flowers are done and dry you can glue them on your envelope.

On the long Blue Backyard flowers, put some dots with the Nuvo Crystal drops and also a little bit in between the flowers. Using dries clear glue, add glitter to the flowers. Cut out a sentiment label from the paper collection and glue this on the right bottom corner, now take some white gesso and give the whole envelope card a white wash.
