Love You So Much!

At the first sight of the rose in the new Stamp Simply Thinking of You Rose clear stamp set, I had this card in my head, and with a glimpse of the fern in Nature's Sketchbook, the details of the whole tuxedo/boutonniere idea began to take shape.  Lucky for me there was a wedding robe card video demonstrating this fun fold, which I modified to fit into a standard envelope.  What a great card for a bride's groom, the groom's best man, groomsman, or even that special prom date!

The card base is essentially a tri-fold card with lapels folded and trimmed into the front flaps.  The boutonniere began with that fussy-cut fern from a sheet of Nature Sketchbook designer paper underneath the stamped and die-cut rose.  A pretty bow and pearl-headed straight pin gave it the characteristic corsage look.
