Now onto my project for today. You saw a little sneak peek of it on the Facebook events page and on Instagram and now I'll share the rest of what I created with the amazing new Zen Floral set. This new set, along with the others you have been getting peeks of, will be available for purchase starting tomorrow on the Honey Bee Stamps website. YAY!


I mixed the new Zen Floral with the Kindness set to create this colorful card ensemble. After stamping my floral border along the side of my card I also stamped it on the flap of my envelope. I've been on a huge kick of creating cards with coordinating envelopes lately. I mean, who wouldn't love to open their mailbox and find beautifully decorated happy mail on the inside, as well as on the outside! The floral border in this new set makes it so easy to create a decorative border for both your card and envelope.
 

Love, love, love how cheerful this is!


Here is a close up of the Copic markers I used to color in the florals.


I hope you enjoyed your visit. Thank you for stopping in and don't forget to hop along and enter for your chance to win these amazing new Honey Bee sets! Good luck!
