This is the other card that we made in stamp club in January. I have to confess that I'm pretty partial to this Valentine – it has texture, glitz and I got to use the Envelope Punch Board. It's like a tri-fecta of awesomeness! I think the stamp club gals were pretty pleased with this one, too. I was also excited to get to break out my stamp set called "A Round Array" for the cute little sentiment on the front. Since I don't have lots of Valentine sets, I have to make use of what I have – and I think that this stamp was perfect for this card.
The envelope that you see here is smaller than any listed in the dimensions on the punch board. But never fear, I'll give you the details here so you can make this card for yourself, too.
- Cut the patterned paper in a 3 1/2" square.
- Line up the edge at the 1 1/2" mark on the Envelope Punch Board.
- Punch and score.
- You will punch and score the remaining 3 sides, lining up the score line from the previous side with the pointer from the "speech bubble" on the punch board.
- Fold in the two sides and fold up the bottom.
- Trim a little off the pointy end of the bottom flap so you can see a bit more in the envelope.
- Adhere the sides of the bottom flap to the side flaps to hold the envelope in place.
- Round the pointy end on the top flap (you will not fold this flap down).
You can check out a video for the Envelope Punch Board here. I am absolutely in LOVE with this fun new tool!
