Very simple card to make but very pretty.


  • 1 Blank purple card and envelope
  • 1 Sheet of nice colour paper with a pattern of your choice
  • 1 Gift tag
  • Double sided tape
  • 1 Flower
  • 1 Cutting tool for nice edge (you can get these from craft shops)


  1. Cut the purple paper with a cutting/tearing tool and using double sided tape stick it on the card as per the picture.
  2. Stick on the gift tag. Then stick the flower on the card.
  3. I sometimes place a sticker on the gift tag, such as happy birthday or thank you depending on the occasion.
