First of all I used a little leaf stamp and stamped a background all over the opened outside of the card. Then I used initial stamps to put my monogram on the piece that is used on the enclosure. Then progressed onto the inside, shown in picture below.
I layered some patterned paper on the inside, then added another layer of the same stock as the original purchased card. I had a scrap from a card that I goofed on earlier. Then I used a Stampendous Stamp for the sentiment. Also in the lower right hand corner, I put some little flocked dots. There is one missing in the very corner. Flossie probably ate that one. I didn't know it was even missing till I started posting the pictures.Since this is going to be a hand delivered card. I dressed up the sealed flap just a touch.
The sentiment is for Pat and Dee. We met 2 years ago this month through a tragedy, and we have become the best of friends, through one of the toughest things that life could throw out at you. We still have so many unanswered questions, but will persevere till the end. Again, thanks Pat and Dee for believing in me and being patient with me till I knew the time was right.
