Mini Gift Enclosures with scallop envelopes

Happy Aloha Friday! It's a furlough day for me, but there's no relaxing today. Lots to do as usual! Before I share those mini gift enclosures with you, I wanted to share a photo of the roses we made using the large flower punch. We made the larger roses to practice before making the smaller ones. For those who attended, I hope it helped by making the larger flower first. Here's what the Spritz Smooch looks like - I sprayed it on one of the roses. So pretty! Here are the cards we made, a total of 6 cards and envelopes. We used the new cardstock colors for the envelopes and a scrap strip from the Greenhouse Gala DSP to add some color. The image is a cute little monkey from the Fox and Friends stamp set stamped using the new Expresso ink. I love this rich brown!
The cards were wrapped up in a cello bag an ribbon and was placed in our fancy favor monkey box.
Happy weekend! I'm planning on helping Dad clean out his shed in the back. Over the years, he's accumulated so much junk that he can barely walk in his little shed...I hope I'm successful in cleaning and not run into too many geckos! ("scream!!!")
Thanks for your visit today! Come back tomorrow to see the cute little bonus card we made!

Thanks for sharing your great ideas. The monkey cards are so cute. Sorry I missed your roses classes...they are really beautifull, esp. with the mist.

Boy, don't we all need help in cleaning out junk! Show your before & after pics! I could use some inspiration too!
