I can remember that phrase from a long time ago..... and I haven't said it in quite a while!! However... it came to mind this morning when I looked at how long it was since I managed to get on the ol' blog and do a post... 
Life has been a bit busy - what with gardening, work, furbabies and other family things, time just seems to fly. But in a good way, the garden is looking like an abundance of leafy goodness, work is steady and coming together, the furbabies are contented, spoiled and all the rest of it, and family are as bonkers as ever.
Perfect!
So... today, I thought I would finish this post for you that I started a while ago, and share this project with you.
I created it using the envelope dies that came out a while ago now (listed at the end of the post) and I kept it quite simple with a stamped sentiment and a bit of a drop shadow. 

Firstly, you will need to use the larger central die from the set, and cut it from white and also from your darker shade of pink.
Layer these together, sightly offset to create a drop shadow effect. Trim around the edges to make them nice and even. Take a lighter shade of pink and attach the top lacey layer using foam pads for dimension. Trim the edges so they are nice and even. You can do this with scissors.
Cut out a slightly larger base of mirror card, leaving around a 2mm bor
der all the way around. Stick underneath your panel. 

Mount this onto your card blank using 3d foam pads. Nsxt you will need to stamp your sentiment, or whatever it is that you choose to include onto the front. You can also add some paper flowers or just a bow to keep it simple - it will look classy and beautiful just as it is.
I hope you like the quick and easy project today... these dies are just amazing and as you can see, are not just for envelopes.
Here are your dies you need... have a fantastic day everyone!!
