Look at the fluffy fru fru bow I added on this card. So.... for a bow like this I would not put it in an envelope but rather include it in the gift box or put it in a clear card box to give. I had a long length of purple silk ribbon and I just keep winding it around the bow easy making my bow, lol! A few simple layers and a Sizzix Embossing Folder create the simple background.
When it comes to a specific flower, and me not being a real green thumb kind of gal.... I go to Google and look up some images to get ideas from. What did we do before Google? So I googled Crocus and to choose my color scheme. I found this purple sketchy looking DP in my stash and pulled that in to coordinate too. You can see I outlined only a portion of the Nestie inner frame. I left a blank spot to go back and add in a few jewels to jazz it up. Finished card size is an A2.
