Quite often we make cards that are to thick to send in the mail in an envelope. So I went on line and at Splitcoast Stampers and found directions on making an envelope for a 4 3/8" x 5 3/4" card. Click here to see how it was done. The directions were a bit confusing so....I worked it and worked until I created my own, for myself. It wasn't easy but I now have a template (I made) to make other envelopes when needed. Below is a picture of my own template. My measurements may not make sense to you if you enlarge and try to use it. The measurements I have on the template are from outer edge corners.... I think? It's been a while since I did this so it's hard to remember? I'm just glad I have that template I made and able to make another envelope with the template when I need it.
The paper is double sided so it looks so pretty on the inside as well.
I actually made this card some time ago but am finally getting around to posting for you. Today I'm not going to go on and on about this pretty rose card. I think you probably already know that the embossed rose is from Stampin-Up' - Manhattan Rose and the rest is history. I just love the soft orange and pink combination I created by blending my chalk inks together.
I hope you enjoyed stopping by to see what was in store for you here on my blog today and hoped to add more inspiration to each of you to get stampin and creating your own envelope for your card.....
Have a wonderful week and let go,
get stamping and creating
Blessings to all!
