How to Make Envelopes

hearts a flutter heart shaped card

Today I’ll show you how to make envelopes.  Yesterday I gave you all the details about this heart-shaped valentine.  Today it’s all about making the envelope that’s perfect for your special card.  NOTE: This envelope is not a standard size.  Please see measurements below.

The trick is not only to make the envelope but to make the envelope so that your pattern on your paper is heading the right direction!  For example, if I just cut a square from the papers pictured above and placed my diagonal score lines to create my envelopes, the hearts would be on the diagonal instead of facing up.  Oh, dear.  That won’t do.

Of course on the flap the pattern will be necessarily upside down, but that’s ok.  😉  The front is what matters.  Check out the video tutorial on how to create this custom envelope.

Supplies needed:

 More Amore Designer Series Paper #129309

Simply Scored Diagonal Plate #125586
 

BUNDLE BONUS:  When you order the Scoring Tool, Diagonal Plate and any pack of Designer Series Paper together, you’ll receive a FREE Sale-a-bration bonus item.

Envelope measurements:  Cut square 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score diagonal on opposite corners at 2-1/4″.  Score remaining corners at 3-3/4″.  Your envelope will measure about 3-1/8″ x 3-3/4″.

Now you can get busy making your own valentines now that you know how to make envelopes!

Enjoy, Julie

Clean and Simple Secret Garden Flower Dies Stamping

bloomin' marvelous secret garden card

More clean and simple collage stamping in this greeting card created with the Stampin’ Up! Secret Garden stamp and flowers die bundle and the FREE Bloomin’ Marvelous set available during Sale-a-bration with a $50 product purchase.

I stamped this on yummy Shimmery White cardstock.  It’s hard to photograph but if you look closely, you can see the shimmer!  And using the framelit dies made masking and layering these flowers super easy.  (You can watch the video below to see how!)

bloomin' marvelous secret garden card flag

I tried stamping the black sentiment directly over the flowers, but it didn’t show up the way I liked so I stamped it on a piece of vellum to layer over the top.  Using the vellum allowed the thought to stand out more without completely covering the flower design.  A perfect solution!

Here is the Card Recipe:
(All supplies from Stampin’ Up! Click on the link to visit my store for product pictures, details & ordering.)
SAB: Bloomin’ Marvelous wood-mount #129651 clear-mount #129654
Stamps: Secret Garden stamp and framelit die bundle wood-mount #129141 clear-mount #129144,

Extras: Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack #118309,  Pearls #119247, Pink Pirouette Taffeta Ribbon #122981, Glue Dots #103683

And here’s the video to show you how to quickly make this card using the flower framelit dies to mask!

Cross My Heart Valentine Card and Video

cross my heart pink & black card

 I love the crossword puzzle look in the Cross My Heart stamp and was anxious to make a simple valentine card with the I love you puzzle and the adorable little elephants!

Here’s another Valentine card video tutorial!  (If you can’t see the video in your email or feed, just click to the post to view.)  A few years ago our dog chewed up the end of my heat tool, but the darn thing keeps working so I keep using it.  I need it to stop working because I need a good excuse to buy the new heat tool, which is AWESOME.

Using the heart from the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper made this project extra special and easy.
