Perennial Essence card: unmailable

I’ve been experimenting recently with what I call un-mailable cards (very impractical because I actually send most of my cards through the mail), because they do look so interesting when elements kind of slide off the edge of the card stock.

This card uses the Perennial Essence designer series paper as the base. One of the images from the Floral Essence stamp set is stamped on the petal pink vellum card stock and punched out with the Perennial Flower punch, coupled with the matching floral centers. The sentiment (also from the Floral Essence stamp set) inked in Blackberry Bliss and set off-center.

Then, getting a little crazy: start by digging into the Magnolia Lane ribbon combo pack: the linen ribbon across the bottom of the card, and then about a yard of the Mossy Meadow linen thread looped under the flowers and off the edges of the card. And the final touch: I used the leaf punch to make six sets of vellum leaves and tucked them all around–I think this is the key to the card: not just one or two leaves for little accents, but an over-the-top, ridiculous number of them! (And also, not just a loop or two of the thread, but an abundance of it.)

Now, just to find someone conveniently nearby to deliver this to….
