Simple envelope card with tutorial

hello back with an other quick but oh so sweet idea to use with your Mini Magnolia stamps. sorry for the dark pictures… I really need to start using my day light lamps again.

Doesn’t this look nice? no cutting required just folding. lets go ahead and make one, all you need is pretty double sided paper.

envelope card_1

Magnolia Doo Hickey border die, Magnolia Sentiment: Loving Wishes
Magnolia ink double sided design paper
Martha Stewart clay and mold for frame and butterfly
Copic markers
Corner rounder
Gesso for a vintage wash
chipboard embellishments, pearl brad

Simple envelope card
Claudia Rosa

1 sheet double sided Designer paper (DSP)
I used Magnolia ink, Adhesive if desired
to finish card:
stamps, sentiments, ribbon, dies and flowers
Step 1: Cut DSP into a square. Sample has been cut to 10 inches x10 inches
Step 2: fold your DSP in half

Step 3: fold in half again. You will have a square.

Step 4:
open your paper. It should now look like this:

Step 5: fold all four tips or corners of your DSP to the center point of your scored lines (center of your DSP) If your DSP is heavy weight and it’s hard to fold, or if you can’t see the scored lines well due to the pattern of your DSP you could use a ruler to help you guide. This is how your DSP should look after you folded all 4 tips to the center point.


Step 6: flip your paper face down

Step 7: and fold your paper in half

Step 8: open flap and fold it to the other side

Step 9: this is how your card will look like after the flap is folded “back”. You can now glue both DSP together or embellish the seam with lace or some of your die cut borders.
Step 10:
cut a piece of white paper according to the size you created your envelope to add your message. If you started out with a square 10x10 inches of DSP you might want to cut your slider to 6 ¾ and 3 ¼

Here is how my finished card looks like with the slider pulled out:
