Good morning, Steph here with a fun envelope card. This is definitely a card that the recipient will hold onto!!! Knowing that I wanted to use the large rose on this beautiful SEI Lover's Rendezvous paper, I created my project around it. All the beautiful papers I've used are from SEI's Mia Bella paper pad, a beautiful collection of 12" x 12" papers in assorted prints and colors.
Cut pattern paper to 11" x 11" and use a Scor-pal to score on the diagonal.
Place the fold at the top of the Scor-pal and score at 3 1/4" and 5 1/2". Since the paper extends beyond the Scor-pal, flip it and score again at 3 1/4" and 5 1/2". Rotate your paper so that the fold now sits along the left side of the Scor-pal and score the length at 4".
Cut out the triangles that were created when you scored at the 4" mark.
Fold on all score lines.
To create the diamond shape on both ends, place your finger inside and gently fold the paper from the bottom point, aligning with the bottom layers.
Add Scor-tape to the top sections as shown. Do NOT add tape to the left side diamond created in the previous step. This must remain free to be used as the closure.
Adhere together and fold. A little trimming may be necessary so that the top flap lays flat.
Insert the flap into the diamond to complete your project.
Now let's decorate!
Cut SEI's Lover's Rendezvous paper to fit the interior sections of the card.
Ink the edges with coordinating ink before assembling.
Add a sticker from the SEI Lexington Card Maker paper pad to the left side flap.
Stamp a sentiment on the right side flap.
Using Spellbinders circle dies, die cut cardstock and papers from SEI's Lexington Card Maker Paper pad for the center flap. Tear a strip of cardstock to span the circle.
Die cut foliage using SEI's Lexington Cardmaker Paper Pad and adhere with foam adhesives.
Stamp and color the focal image with Copic Markers and add to the center with foam adhesives for dimension.
Once completed, be sure all edges are inked, then refold allowing the rose to take center stage.
Just think of all the possibilities you can create with this envelope card.
