Hello and welcome...
I have a fabulous set of AltEnew Stamps all relating to being crafty so you will be seeing lots of cards using these stamps and today's card uses 4 of them.  The sentiment, verse and 2 heart stamps 
I've used 3 different Distress Oxide Inks as well as a stencil to create the background, then die cut a frame to go around it

I added a piece of double sided adhesive sheet to white card and die cut and embossed 3 leaves.  Removed the backing sheet and sprinkled gold glitter onto the leaves then adhered them onto the card

I used one of the AltEnew stamps for the sentiment and die cut and embossed it with a pierced flag die then layered it onto a piece of the 'scrap' left-over card from the background

The insert was also decorated using the same method as above and more of the stamp set used for the verse.  The tiny hearts are also part of the set

To complete I also decorated one side of the envelope

If you would like to give this card a new home all you need to do is comment on this post.  The winner will be picked using Name Picker and you have until 9.30am Monday morning to comment
