When I saw the Stamped with Love stamp set in the new 2023-24 Annual Catalog from Stampin' Up! I just had to have it. I thought to myself, "What a perfect stamp set for a card maker to design with!"
My card was inspired by a similar idea from Heather Klum, but I went a couple different ways with my inside greeting and the stamped envelope than she did.

Each photo below is linked to my online store for ease of shopping.

It was fun to apply the Post Boxes being stamped in Pecan Pie ink like a patterned design on the card front and the envelope flap.

This Birthday card uses two new colors introduced with this new Annual Catalog. The 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card base, scored at 4 1/4" is Pecan Pie. The middle "Love You Always" envelope is Bubble Bath. The top "I Like You" envelope is continuing color Soft Sea Foam. The bottom envelope is a returning color called Berry Burst.

With each of the three envelope colors you will need a 2" x 3 1/2" piece of that color card stock. Stamp the full envelope and pen image to the left side of the piece and you'll have leftover room to stamp the fountain pen again, which will be fussy cut out and applied to another color of envelope.

Here's a bonus hint for you - You'll need to fussy cut out the envelopes as there are no matching dies. But you have my permission to cut off the pen tip and top of the fountain pen to make the cutting of the envelopes go faster. You'll have enough of the pen barrel stamped to know where to position it correctly and adhere the extra pen so it will contrast with the envelope.

The card front is finished with Adhesive Backed Sequins Trio, applying three white sequins as shown.

Since the front of the card had cursive on the mini enveloped, the inside layer "had" to as well. The Go To Greetings stamp set was perfect! I used a layer of Basic White cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/4".

The mini hearts are stamped in Berry Burst ink. I stamped one extra ink pen in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Basic White card stock and colored it in with the Bubble Bath dark alcohol Blends marker. It's a little tricky to fussy cut out, but doable. I used a pair of tweezers to hold on to it, while applying the liquid glue, so it could look like it had just finished writing "Happy."
