Rainbow stationery set


Over at the Hero Arts Blog, one of the multiple challenges this month is to make a stationery set.  And Shari kindly shared with us some nice digital lined papers.  So I printed them out, trimmed them, and stamped away!  Here are my results. 



The folder started out as a 12" piece of Bazzill dotted cardstock, folded in half, and then I folded up the lower edge to make a pocket to hold everything.





This is the Garden Bouquet cling stamp, CG172, inked in markers and spritzed with water before stamping.  Each of the papers was done in one color and green, and the presentation card was done in green and all 6 of the colors on a gingham background.  I did the same thing for the cover of the folder, stamping the image twice and bordering the panel with more green gingham.   I found coordinating envelopes for each.  The sentiment is from one of my favorite clear sets called Truly Appreciated, CL380.
