Happy Harvest card by Scor-pal Designer Katie Tate

Katie here. 
Welcome to my latest tutorial using the great products from Scor-Pal.
I loved THIS CARD on Pinterest and here is my version.
I was helped by the tutorial at Marianne's Papir but my card is a little larger and I have used the new Scor-Envi tool to make a coordinating envelope. I played around with the tool and it was pretty easy to make a custom sized envelope for this card.

Image - Pie Tilda
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Autumn Splendor by DCWV
Twill Ribbon - Hobby Lobby
Die Cuts - Heartfelt Creations
Epoxy Sentiments - K and Co
Tools - Scor-Pal and Scor-Envi
Corner and Border Punch - Martha Stewart Vintage Doily

Using a 6" by 12" piece of cardstock place at the top fence of the Scor-Pal and score at 3", 5", 7" and 9".

Burnish the fold to form two flaps that go back making a forward facing panel.

Die Cut the decorative panels for the sides and center.

Ink the edges of the die cuts and adhere to the panels.

For the envelope start with a 10" square of cardstock/designer paper. As per the instructions on the tool and the photo place the Scor-Envi tool in the top right hand corner of the Scor-Pal and place the cardstock against the tool as in the photo.
Score at 3 1/4" and 8 3/4". Rotate the paper by 90% (1/4 turn) and score at 2 3/4" and 9 1/4".

Snip out the corner triangles that are formed and burnish all scores.

Using Scor-Tape adhere the back flaps and using a corner and border punch combination decorate the top (open) flap on the envelope.

See how perfectly it fits?
It took a few trial runs on some scratch paper but it only took a few minutes to work out the dimensions for a custom envelope.

It is a really nice fold and perfect for displaying your favorite image/
