Good Afternoon crafty friends… I have received several messages asking me to do a tutorial for the punched edge envelopes so here it is!
This envelope measures 5″ x 6″
These instructions are for the Martha Stewart Scoring Board.
Start with an 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of card stock. With your triangle corner tool in place score at 3 5/8″ and then turn your page 90 degreesThen score at 3″ and again turn your page 90 degrees…
Score at 3 5/8″ again and turn 90 degrees…
Then score again at 3″….
Now cut out the little pieces where your score lines go over each other (I know I am not explaining this well) here’s a picture to show you….
Now round off the bottom widest flap using your corner rounder…
Now use some strong adhesive Sookwang tape works the best I find. Oh and PLEASE note where I put the tape…. Like a dunce I taped the actual flap twice and ended up gluing my envelop shut TWICE! *roll eyes* here’s a pic…
Still with me? LOL!!!
Now using a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch set start with the corner and punch the envelope flap… once you have punched the corner line up your punches and punch down both sides of the flap….
Almost done!!! Now cut a 4″ x 4″ piece of matching design paper to decorate your envelope and adhere it to the inside flap of your envelope…
And there you have it!!!…..
How slick is that huh? Here’s a peek at the card and envelope together…
Well, I hope you have found this useful and if you make one, let me know how you made out!
Thanks for stopping by!
Well the weekend is coming to an end and I am busy getting prepared to go back to work tomorrow but in between chores I am still creating! I want to squeeze every bit of enjoyment out of this long weekend as I can! I asked Tony to make a digi sentiment stamp for me today for wedding cards and as usual, he out did himself! Check this out!…
Can you see the shaded little wedding bells in the background? What a sweet little touch this adds! Following my rule of using up as much of a sheet of design paper that I cut into, I made two cards and have enough left over to make some matching envelopes and that will be my next project. I have been asked to do a tutorial on the custom envelopes so I will try to get it done today so pop back and check it out if you are interested.
This is one piece of double sided design paper and I just used the reverse side to do the second card. I love these dies that I picked up at The Cutting Garden.
Cheery Lynn – B117 Fanciful Flourish
Spellbinders – Floral Ovals
The sentiment for the inside of the card, also purchased at The Cutting Garden is by Hampton Art. I asked Tony to make the digi to go along with my new wooden Hampton Art Stamp….
Now it’s been a long time since I have shared one of Tony’s digi’s and I think this one is pretty special so I thought it would be fun to share it with you!!! Just right click on it and save it to your computer. I’d appreciate a link back to my blog if you decide to use it!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
My lovely Friend Lauren has been so busy these days! Busy with her many talents, doing all kinds of lovely crafts but she has been hiding from me and our little Hello Doily game! I thought I would tempt her a little… let’s see if she bites and finds time to play along….
Lookie Lookie Lauren!!!
Hehe! I can’t wait to see what she comes up with Here’s a look at this crazy fold card… I can’t even remember what it is called! LOL!!!
Lauren is probably sleeping right now but I am sure she will see this when she wakes up (she doesn’t miss much!) LOL!!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
I always struggle with Masculine cards but everytime I go stamp shopping it’s the first thing I look for. I found this little PSX stamp on ebay for $7.00! This was my first time ordering from Ebay and It was a very good experience for me so I am sure something else will catch my eye and I will do it again, especially for those very hard to find masculine stamps. Here’s my first attempt at a card using this little gem….
Coloring is just not my thing at all but I thought I would give my new Tim Holtz distressed Ink markers a try that I picked up last week at The Cutting Garden. I have to say… I am very impressed with them!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
Good Morning! It’s another beautiful day and I plan to spend some of it out enjoying the sun! I still have a few projects to share with you and I will be posting them throughout the day. Here’s a simple birthday card using another beautiful Memory Box die I picked up from The Cutting Garden … I have asked Tony to make me a few specific digital sentiments and I will be sharing these as well with you as soon as he has them done.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
