I cranked up ‘ye ole Silhouette SD and created this cute (and easy) flower card. As a matter of fact, I actually cranked several of these babies out in June and stamped them all with different sentiments from Joy’s Life stamps. See below for my mass production. The envelope sentiment comes from my Mother & Daughter stamp set.
Those stamps are from my Holiday Occasions, Everyday Occasions and Barnyard Puns stamp sets. I also made a Father’s Day one but I decided not to post any more of my flower cards than could fit in one photo or we’d be viewing pictures for a while. LOL!
I downloaded this flower card from the Silhouette store.
That flower is pretty cute, but I couldn’t just send it out naked into the birthday world, so I made it an envelope using the Martha Stewart Scoring Board.
I think the MS Scoring Board is better than other score boards (and I have several) because it has these nice measurements included to help you make envelopes and boxes (not shown here). It also comes with a bone folder that hides away in a flush compartment. The measurements are nicely marked as well. Thumbs up!
After 4 scores to the paper and cutting out the corners (as required) I had an envelope! I made an A2 size (standard size). I used my ATG gun to tape parts of the envelope closed, but I used Scotch Restickable Tabs so that my niece could actually open and close it. 😉 I wrote more about how to do that in THIS recent post. I’m LOVING those restickable tabs! The base of the flower was embossed using the Cuttlebug D’vine Swirl folder. I hope you like the cards! Between you and me…I love making envelopes just as much as the cards!
