Hi there! I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, a college English professor, a mom to Annabelle (12) and Henry (9), and a wife to Eric (um . . .). I craft for fun and sanity. I am so glad you came to see my playful designs using ink and fibers. If you like what you see, please follow me online or come to my classes in Springfield, IL!
Of course I also had to make a coordinating envelope using my Envelope Punch Board. Making the envelope was easy. I just found the right size on my board and followed the directions. (I used Crisp Cantaloupe.)
I cut my paper at 6 7/8 by 6 7/8 and then made my first score line at 3 1/2 just as the board indicated. No problem. But I thought the envelope needed more. It was too bland. I had some (gasp!) retired DSP from years ago that worked perfectly. The only problem was how to get it layered in there just right. Well, here's how:
This measurement fits perfectly inside a 4 by 4 envelope.
Look how nicely that came out!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're inspired to make something today! Until next time, stay crafty! Alison
