For my project I wanted to go with the theme of the stamp set, seeds!  So I went on the hunt for some flower seeds.  Then I had to decide on colors.  I wanted to keep it soft, springtime!  I used our color of the year Bashful.

I used the rose embossing folder with the Bashful cardstock and then went over the embossed image with the gold shimmer brush.  I stamped the image in Black ink, and the sentiment and heart in Bashful. For the heart, I stamped the image 3 times to get a deeped color, and is raised using a glue dot.  

I used glue dots to secure the package of seeds to the White Daisy cardstock, and then used the Blush Shimmer Ribbon for my tab to pull out the seed package.  To create the notch at the top of the envelope, I used the 1" circle punch and only used half a circle, creating the notch.

Now "Hop" on over to Melinda's blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the November SOTM is only available until November 30th!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
