Here's my creation.

If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you'll know that I love to make square cards and gift sets of 3" x 3" note cards. The gorgeous colours in the Organdy Ribbon and Botanical Butterfly DSP, were crying out to me to create this set of 5 note cards. And of course, I just had to incorporate the beautiful Country Floral Dynamic embossing folder.
These are all level 1 products, and the embossing folder can be found in the second release brochure.
Each of the embossed panels is adhered to a square of cardstock in the corresponding ribbon colour. The five sentiments come from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in the Annual Catalogue, and I cut them out using the stitched shapes ovals framelits. They are all stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then adhered to a matching coloured scalloped oval.
I punched the same coloured butterfly for each card from the Botanical Butterfly DSP, using the Butterfly Duet punch, attached them with a mini dimensional and added some sparkle with the clear Wink of Stella pen. The flower sequins are from the Gingham Gala suite and I added a tiny pearl to the centre of them from an old retired pack of basic pearls.

The organdy ribbon comes in a set of 5 colours: Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, and Lemon Lime Twist

I also made matching envelopes.

Stampin' Up! products coordinate beautifully! Here I used the Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper to decorate the back flap of the 3" x 3" envelopes.

Now, this little set of cards had to have a home - didn't they?

I decorated one of our mini pizza boxes to hold them.

The only problem was, I had run out of Balmy Blue cardstock for the blue card, but Night of Navy is a lovely contrast with the soft blue, as you can see in the photo below.

Here they are with their matching envelopes. This is one little set I'm going to have trouble giving away!
