Card for Olive

Hi there!
It's been a while, as we've been in the process of moving house.  Although my craft room was the first room to be resurrected, I've been at work almost every day since, so the crafting opportunities have been a little on the slim side.
But here's a card I made for one of the residents recently:

The base is gumball green, then a white square, then a strip of gumball green dsp.  On top is a layer of white, with the sentiment stamped on.   I cut some flowers using my Sizzix dies and leaves and coloured some candy dots to match.  This was fun and easy to make so I must try to make another one soon.
This was actually made a couple of weeks' ago and I've noticed the recipient has kept it, which always cheers me up no end.
Thanks for looking in today.  Things are returning to normal in our lovely new house, so hopefully I'll be back soon to show you some other makes.  I've also received some fabulous cards recently, so I'll try to show you those…

This is the card I made for Michelle:

I've used Pool Party and Lucky Limeade, with some of the lovely Fresh Vintage paper. I can't believe I've still got some of that in my stash.
It's been absolute ages since I made one of these cards and it's silly really because they're very easy and fun to make.
The whole piece of Lucky Limeade cardstock measures 28cm x 11 cm.  I scored at 7cm from either end and folded it over.  I cut two pieces of matching dsp at 10.5cm x 6.5cm and stuck them to both flaps.  Then I cut my ovals from t…
