Hi and welcome to my 'happy place'....

 Starting with a white base card 12.5cm x 18cm (5"x7")  cut a smaller panel in black card then a slightly smaller panel in yellow card

On the yellow panel stamp the two flower stamps from the 'Indigo Blu' stamp set and stamp around the panel with an onyx black ink pad then cover it with a clear embossing powder and heat set it.  (the sheen is not as promanent here as it is on the card itself)

Now adhere to the black card and place the strip of black card onto it with easy lift off tape

Cut a piece of yellow card, for the back of the waterfall, measuring 5cm x 20.5cm and score it at: 5cm, 7cm, 9cm and 10.8cm 

Cut 4 pieces of  black card at 5cm each and 4 in white card at 4.5cm.  Stamp the flowers onto the white card using a Memento ink pad and glue them onto the 4 black card squares adding a strip of adhesive to the back of the cards at the top of each black panel

Starting at the bottom score line, adhere each square to each score line on the yellow strip of card

Slot the long piece of yellow card behind the strip of black card and when you're happy with the position punch a hole at each end as well as your background card and secure with brads

Now place a strip of adhesive onto the black strip and secure the bottom panel onto it

 Punch a hole into the bottom of the exposed yellow card, cut a small piece of ribbon, fold it over and punch another hole in that at the top.  Add a brad through the ribbon and into the yellow card and secure it

When you gently pull the ribbon and exposed the strip of yellow card you can, if you wish, stamp a sentiment on it at the top 

 Create a border around the card using a Micron pen in black (optional)

The sentiment stamped at the top of the yellow strip of card

 Stamp a verse and an image (optional) in the corner of the insert

Should you wish stamp the same image in the corner of the envelope as shown above
