I've had this card in my stash for a while, so thought I would try to make a specialty envelope for it. The bow and three pink beads add some thickness to the card that would make it a little 'lumpy' to send in a regular envelope. I often send these types of cards in padded envelopes, but today I have a different idea for this one!!
I posted the full details for this card here.
Here's the "envelope"
Card stock - Autumn Rose & Rustic White;
Ink - Autumn Rose; Fancy Flourishes stamps
From my stash:
2 doilies; green satin ribbon; white gel pen;
EK Success: Dotted Scallop border punch
Here's how I made it:
I started with a piece of 6" x 10 1/4" card stock. I scored it at
2 1/8" & 2 1/4" 6 5/8" & 6 3/4".
The bottom was scored at 3/8" & 1/2".
These score lines allow for the extra thickness of the card details.
If you have a thicker card, you could adjust these measurements as necessary.
I then cut the two front sections along one of the bottom score lines.
I folded along all of the score lines and then added the
doilies, stamping, faux stitching and border details.
Once the card was placed inside, the bottom flap was folded
up to hold it in place and then the ribbon/bow was added.
Thanks for visiting today.
