These are the notelets and envelopes. The pink envelope with the acetate aperture contains sentiments from the sentiment stamp so that the recipient can put there own sentiment onto the notelets when they need them

Other Items Used:

Pink and cream card stock, pearls, ribbon,  lace, pink embossing powder, embossing ink, Score-pal, score tape and glue.

 

Instructions

Card and small note cards:

Take a piece of 12x12inch pink card and cut in half. Score at 2 ½”, 3”, 9” and 9 ½”. Take the other piece of card and cut in half. Adhere one piece to the front of the card and the other to the back. This is your base card.  Adhere chosen Daphne papers to all inside panels, the front and the back side panel of the card.  Make 2 pockets for each side panel.  Make a ¾” in debth x about 4 3/4” pocket using your score pal board. Die cut 4 decorative lace borders and 4 floral doily borders and adhere as in picture. Stamp and heat emboss x 2 sunkissed fleur die sets and die cut them out. Stamp and heat emboss Sunkissed 2x tags from the tags and basket set and fussy cut them out. Stamp and heat emboss 5 x foliage from the delicate aster stamp set and die cut them out. Die cut 3 ornate arches from the ornate gateway die set. Now adhere these to your card as in picture. Stamp and cut out the all seasons sentiments. Adhere a chosen sentiment to the front tag and the tag on the outside of the back of the card. Add lace, pearl sand ribbon to finish.

 Make 6 small cards measuring 3 1/4”x 4” using your scorpal board and decorate with the panels from your Daphne paper collection. Make envelopes measuring 3 ½” x 4 ¼” decorate with lace and the floral doily borders that are left over from the ones that you used for the main card and cut the decorative stamps from the Daphne paper collection and adhere to the fronts.  (For the instructions on how to make the envelopes please visit my blog). I have also made an envelope with an acetate front containing all of the sentiments that I haven’t used, which I have cut and adhered score tape too. This is so that the recipient can use the ones that they require for the particular occasion,  they can then adhere these onto the small cards.

Make a box measuring 6 ½” x 6 ½” from pink card. Adhere some Daphne paper and decorate with 4 x floral doily borders, 1 x decorative lace border (the scalloped part), 1 x decorative arch and 1 x set of stamped embossed sunkissed fleur flowers. Adhere these to the box as in picture and add lace, ribbon, pearls and decorative pearls to finish.
 
 

 
Mini tutorial on how to make the envelopes
 
 
For the envelopes you will need paper measuring 4 1/2" x 9"
Score at 4 1/4" and 8 1/2"   length ways and 1/2" and 4" width ways

 
Cut along the score line as in photo to leave tabs in the centre and a flap at the top.
Add score tape to the centre tapes


 
For the envelope which the sentiments go in cut an aperture out of the centre with your chosen die as in picture.
 
 Adhere acetate on the inside of the envelope with score tape

Here is what your envelope should look like
