Have you Ever?

Have you ever received a gift that was wrapped and decorated so beautifully that you did not want to open the package, you just wanted to look at the box. Well I received one of those this week. It was from Nancy as a thank you to Jan Marie and I for "minding the store" while she was on vacation.

I did open the box so I only have the outside decorations to take a picture of. I did not think of taking one before I opened it, duh!

Anyway, I liked her thank you card so much that I spent part of the day making a handful for my sister to use during the holidays. She takes small gifts when she is invited to friends and family. she also sends thank you notes.

The tags are made with real red, metallic red, soft sky and white. Flourished Elements was stamped in craft white and embossed with silver glitter the sentiment is stamped with Flourished Words. Spellbinders nestabilities ovals was used to cut accent pieces.
Red card is cut 3x6, sky blue paper cut 2.5x 2 1/4 white insert paper is cut 2 3/4 x2 3/4.

In the process of stamping with Flourished Elements I found several ways of making one stamp fit into different patterns which I used to accentuate a small Note.
I do not have a finished card in mind yet, but when I do I will post it here. Thanks for visiting, and thank you Nancy for the lovely gift.
