Belated Birthday card

So I had finally sent this out a week ago (it had been sitting around for a couple weeks!), after finally making my own envelope to it.  I, of course, just had to make a square card, but I didn't have any of Stampin' Up!'s square envelopes (which fit up to a 5-1/4" square card comfortably).  I made my own, out of some retired Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper, but I love the look of Stampin' Up!'s ultrasmooth envelopes.  Plus, you can stamp beautifully on them!

If you're wondering what to do with your ornament punch, other than to make ornaments.. look at the card more closely!  You can snip off the pointy end and make a vase.  I embossed the polka-dotted stamp from the For All You Do stamp set with VersaMark and clear powder to give it some interest.  The punch has a coordinating stamp set, Delightful Decorations, in the Holiday Mini catalog.  It also coordinates with the rub-ons on the opposite page!  I don't know about you, but I'm such a sucker for coordinating stamp sets and punches!
