I sponged around the edges of both top & bottom using my SU Sponge & Concord Crush Ink. Are you sick of Concord Crush yet????? I wrapped Satin Ribbon – Not Quiet Navy around the top part of the envelope & tied a bow off centre at the front.
Placing the bottom half of the card into the Crimper sideways, I proceeded to put it through the Crimper.
I stamped my greeting onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Not Quiet Navy – yep, I’ve changed colours…… Punched the greeting out using my Large Oval Punch, sponged around the edges with Not Quiet Navy, adhered to card with a SU Dimensional & placed a small Pearl in the center of the greeting, as well as a larger Pearl to the centre of the Medallion Stamp.
For the inside, I cut a piece of Concord Crush Cardstock – 4 1/2″ x 4″ or 11.5cm x 10cm. I cut another piece using Whisper White Cardstock – 4 3/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 11cm x 9.5cm. I stamped my image using Not Quiet Navy Ink, sponged the edges in the same colour & adhered to the Concord Crush Cardstock. I placed a couple of small Pearls to the centre of the flowers.
All in all a really lovely creative card using a techinque which has been around for yonks, but not seen that much now. It is still one of my favourites & probably always will be. Note to self – start using Crimper more often!

Ooh Vicky this is gorgeous. I was lucky to receive a card like this last year but I have not as yet made one. You have used colours I love and two of my favorite stamp sets. Just love it.
This is just so pretty. Love the colours, love the stamps and love these crimped cards. Stunning.
