A Little Bit of Unity Fun

So Stella is really getting her stamping groove on now-a-days! I thought it would be fun to play with a pack of cute note cards that I picked up at the Dollar Tree (gotta love those bargains!). The scalloped cards were pre-cut, and included envelopes. Since they came in such fun, funky colors, I decided to find fun, funky papers to line the envelopes in order to tie it all together. I thought it odd that they give you such an unusual color scheme: deep red scallop note cards, blue inserts, and lime green envelopes --- are we talking funky colors or what! (I guess you gotta remember that they were only $1.00!)
But let's look at the transformation. So here are the envelopes after I lined them. Stinkin' cute! The cute little flower pot stamp is from a past Unity KOM. It just seemed logical to make a grab for Unity Stamps when I was headed for fun and funky!
I packaged the whole shebang as a gift set, clipped with a wooden clothespin and some felt flowers. Since I'm giving it as a gift, I'll leave the note cards blank (no sentiment). But since there are 7 cards total, I think I'll stamp something on the bottom of one of them (near the flower pot) and use that one to write a personal note to the recipient. Then she can have the remaining 6 note cards to use as she pleases! I love the Dollar Tree! I love gift sets! I love making something into something special!
