PTI January Blog Hop

My sister and I share this blog and we both wanted to play along on this month's blog hop so there are two separate entries from one blog.

















This card is for a friend’s Birthday. We have been longing for someplace tropical with the cold weather around here so that influence my paper selection.











The card base is PTI’s White and is 4 x 9 ½ . The pattern paper on the front is SEI and it is matted with coordinated paper. The Melon Berry strip is stamped with Beyond Basic Borders and heat embossed with clear and it is matted on PTI’s Black.














I cut the floral image from larger print version of the pattern paper. The sentiment and flower was stamped with Around & About Sentiments. The button is also Melon Berry.

















The inside of the card is stamped with sentiments from Friends ‘Til the End. I cut another floral image from the previously reference pattern paper.










The envelope is stamped with images from Beyond Basic Borders.
