I like using orange for Melissa's cards because she's a Vols fiend. And she loves irises, even has an iris tat in memory of her iris-growing granny. So I threw this card together, and promptly screwed up by assembling it wrong. And instead of doing it all over again, I opted to cut the original apart and put it on a slightly larger card base, which led me to create a homemade envelope, too!
I don't remember what the cardstocks are, although the replacement base was a Bazzill--that much I'm certain of. The others came out of stash. The stamp is either All Night Media after they went mass market or PSX, and of course it's gone walkabout (it's around here somewhere!). The ink is VersaFine Onyx Black.
The really fun part? I even asked her advice on what to do when you've mucked up your assembly. Her answer? Cry. Well, it didn't go that far, but it was a frustrating few days of pouting over the blunder before I decided to go slightly-larger-than A2 for this one, even though it meant the custom-made envelope--which also got stamped and colored, but I don't think I photographed that.
Edited 4/8 after the iris ended its walkabout: it's an old Hero Arts stamp.
I'm entering this in the Less is More #321 "Recipe" challenge.
