Good afternoon! I’m back sharing another card using products from the ‘Secret Garden’ release by Penny Black. Today’s card uses the Exquisite Envelopes stamp set and the coordinating cut out die set.

I stamped several of the foliage images with VersaFine Onyx black ink onto some Strathmore Bristol smooth white card stock. Then I relaxed and chatted with some friends via Zoom, while I water coloured them with my Zig Clean colour real brush markers. Once they were dry, I dry cut them out and arranged them in the envelope. I love how the die set allowed you to cut a slit into the envelope so you tuck them in.

The sentiment is from the Million Thanks stamp set – I love this sentiment set as it has lots of different sub-sentiments you can put with the larger font to create a more personalised greeting.

To add some very subtle interest to the background I sponged on some tone-on-tone dots using the Oscillations stencil. To finish off the card, I added in some white gel pen details and popped up the envelope with some foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by. To view and or purchase any of these new products from these releases, head to the Penny Black online store.

If you have any questions, just email me. Until next time,



  1. So pretty! It has like a Scandinavian feel to it. 🙂 I hope you’re keeping well. Love from Janelle

  2. Such a beautiful design Marion, these colours work so well together!
