Parcels & Petals. Are you looking for the parcels? There is a set of dies that coordinate with this stamp set. You can create a little box with the dies. Today, I’m just using the stamp set for a fun, gate fold card. (Soon, I’ll show you the dies and the wonderful things you can create with them.)

Design Notes for Parcels & Petals:

Gate fold cards are just the kind of card I like to make. They are easy to do and yet look somehow more special.

Do you have the new Stitched Nested Labels? They are the best. That’s what I used to create the label in the center of the card front. Stamp sentiment, cut with die. Then use the next larger die to cut a background piece. And isn’t the stitched detail around the edge the best?

Are you wondering about the panels on either side? I know you are thinking it’s some designer paper. No! I stamped it myself with some flowers and leaves from the Parcels & Petals stamp set. Now you can’t ever complain about have just the right designer paper – just make it yourself!
