SEI and Scor-Pal Week with Steph Ackerman


Today you get to see three great projects as part of our SEI and Scor-Pal cross-promotion week !  We have lots of fun in store for you, including wonderful projects and great prizes.  Every day, we will have 2-3 posts on our blog, and the SEI blog is going to be sharing projects and prizes as well. Leave comments on our blog, and Facebook page for entries to win.  There may be extra ways to earn entries hidden in the posts - so pay close attention for those chances.

So, speaking of prizes, here is what we are giving away:


A full-sized Scor-Pal!  We will also add a couple of rolls of Scor-tape!  Be sure to tell your friends, because you won't want to miss out on this giveaway!  Make sure all of your entries are in by Sunday, May 5th, 11:59 pm E.S.T.

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. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

This card does have so many possibilities. Without the rose embellishment, I could see many masculine uses for it, too!
