I came up with a way to make a perfect envelope with the only tools being a pair of sissors  and a ruler and a paper trimmer.  It works every time and is easy peasy.

Series 2 Die cut Dimensionals Wild Flower set #1129002DC02. This is also a kit that contains 8 sheets with two different sets of 3D cards on a sheet. There is four different designs in the pack giving you a total of 16 cards. These are the easiest  cards to make. All off the die cutting is done for you. Directions are simple to  follow to the above cards. I added sunshine yellow flower soft to the center of each flower. I colored the outside rim of the oval panel with a yellow copic marker which made the flowers pop.
I used a Mariann Creatable Die # LR0236 cut in white card stock. I used a 5x7 white card base and took a piece of sunshine yellow card stock and cut it to 5x7 and trimmed it with a pair of deckle scissors to give it a pretty edge.I placed some of the extra yellow flowers in the four corners with yellow flower soft in the centers. I used pop dots on the two flowers at the top of the card. I finished off the front of my card with a white organza double. On the inside of the card I uised the border strip from the sheet that matched the oval.

This is a kit that contains 2 different sets of 3D cards on a sheet and you get 8 sheets to a pack. There  are 4 designs to a pack, so you get a total of 16 cards. That's allot of bang for your buck. They couldn't be any  easier. They are all ready die cut for you. From the back of the card you push out the foliage and the flowers, then turn the sheet over, open the petals and the foliage and shape them. I added Summer Flower Soft to the middle of the flowers and used pop dots on some of the extra cut outs that came on the sheet. For my card , I used a white card base, then layered red card stock,  and a layer of cream colored card stock,, I placed the die cut image to the centers of the cream card stock. On the card and the 1st 2 layers I rounded the corners. I made a red organza double bow and added it to the front of the card . For the sentiment on the card frontI used Just Rite Old Friends Set # JB10015, which comes with 6 borders and centers2"in diametor. These where compatible with Spellbinders Circle Die. The scallop border around the sentiment was a punch  from the Paper Studio, edges inked with red pigment ink. In the Inside of the card I used a Spellbinders label die to match the front of the card,
