Envelope Card

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I got a lot of comments and questions about this card so I thought I would put a tutorial together for you. Enjoy.


Envelope Card
By: Debbie Moran

Supplies:
Legal size envelope (ones with a flat tab works best)
Card Stock
Adhesive
Coloring tools
Ink
Paper cutter
Pen
Ruler
Designer Paper















Step One:
Draw a line on the flap fold of your envelope using your ruler and pen.  This will help you see better when you need to cut it.















Step Two:
Take your ruler and mark dots at 2 ¼ and 7 ¼.















Step Three:
Put Envelope in cutter and cut along envelope fold to your marks. Then cut off the rest of the flap.















Step Four:
Fold the bottom part of your envelope toward the center. The ends will not meet in the center.















Step Five:
Stamp background images onto the flaps and back of envelope, but not on the inside of the flaps.

    

 
 Step Six:
Cut your base card stock 4 ½ x 4. Layer to your liking.
















Step Seven:
Tear bottoms of the two card stock. Do not tear the DP. Mount all three pieces together.
















Step Eight:
Stamp and color your image onto white card stock and adhere to your layered base.















Step Nine:
Adhere your base to the flap of your envelope.
















Step Ten (optional):
Stamp a sentiment on the inside of the flaps.
















Step Eleven:
Cut from your layered cardstock 1 piece of 4 ¼, one 3 ¾ and one pice of white 3 ¾ x10/8. This will make the inside of your card. Mount all the pieces together.
















Step Twelve:
Stamp sentiment or image on insert and color.  Finish card to liking.























 I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today, this is a very simple and easy card to do and different from others. Thanks for stopping and commenting. I hope to see you again soon. Have a blessed day. 

Thanks
