You can always buy mini envelopes, I just didn't have one handy.
So.. I took a small plain brown paper bag and turn it into a cute envelope! 
Distressed the edges with Tim Holtz ink pad.

I stamped on a 'get well soon' sentiment with the Black Archinval Ink.
I then coloured in the stamp with Tim Holtz beige pen.

With my Martha Stewart punch, I punched out a bunch of different pink/red tones of hearts.
I distressed with two different ink pads the edges of the hearts to make them stand out.

I used a $1.50 set of envelope and blank thin white cards. I rounded the edges.
I added a yellow cardstock for the background and rounded those edges as well.
I then started placing my hearts. I wanted them to look like they were exploding out of the envelope.

Kept adding and adding some more hearts :) Trying to give them a layered look.
I used glue dots and regular glue sticks to give them a bit of dimensions

There we go! I was very pleased with the outcome. Always so hard to know when to stop 
adding hearts haha. I kept saying okay just one more, one more :P ..

Me and my famous Glossy Accents haha. I added some clear dimensional medium to a few hearts here and there to give them an added touch. I find it makes it more interactive and looks alot more dimensional. They look a little frosty on this picture because I had just applied it, it will dry clear :)
