Mazel Tov!

Recently a friend asked me to make a card for her to bring to a bat mitzvah party. She asked for flowers and purple. Could I possibly be happier with those instructions???

I decided to play with my lovely older Hero Arts Flower Medley stamp. The background is from my DCWV burlap paper stack, which I've been obsessed with lately! *love* And the mazel tov is from Paper Smooches. I created a ginormous embelly with twine and a button:

Because it was so big, of course I couldn't fit this card in a standard envelope, so I dug out my favorite new-to-me tool, my Envelope Punch Board!! Oh my, coolest thing ever!!!

I didn't actually take a photo of the envelope, but I will say it took about 2 minutes to make and it was perfect. My friend paid me for this card with New Mexico chile peppers fresh from her garden. Best commission ever!!

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Super cute!! Love that burlap. *swoon*

  2. WOW Libby you really rocked this one - love it. And I can just see you loving the instruction to use purple :-)

  3. What a (deserved) compliment to be asked, Libby! And, you did not disappoint. This card is absolutely gorgeous. I have often wondered about those thingies for making envelopes, but you seem to love it! Hmmmmmm...maybe a *must have* now for me!


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
