Silhouette SD Flower Cards & Martha Stewart Score Board Envelope

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 setsI 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!

  1. I can’t craft without my fav pair of scissors and inspiration from my munchkins for fabric crafts and you for some paper/vinyl crafts.

    Thanks for the giveaway. : )

  2. Joy, I also enjoy my scoreboard, but I ‘tweaked’ mine a little bit. You can see the altered version here:


    I used Bic “FINE” point permanent markers for it. Also, you can’t see it, but in the back of the scoreboard, I drilled (putting tape on either side first) a hole, VERY SLOWLY with my drill at low torque pressure through the upper center part of it. I can now hang up my scoreboard on a peg. On the inside of the scoreboard, I have a hook and loop dot adhered, and another one adhered to the bone folder, so it stays put in that little compartment.

  3. I would have to say my Cricut is my favorite too for scrapbooking and card making. I Keep picking up the MS Scoring Board at Michaels and I just put it back because I didn’t think I would use it enough to justify buying it. But Joy, you have changed my mind, I have trouble finding envelopes for my cards and this would solve that problem. Thanks

  4. Joy:
    I’m so glad I found you – I have learned a lot, and shared your site info with two ladies I met at Michael’s when they were buying a cuttlebug. I just walked right up and told them they would love it, and that I had bought mine because YOU use one. They were thrilled to get the info. Thanks so much, Joy. I would love to be the lucky winner of the MS Scoring Board. I looked at it last week at Michael’s, lusted, but didn’t purchase.

    1. DKdogmom,
      That is so nice! Thank you for telling others about my site. I sure do appreciate you doing that. I’m so happy that you enjoy my site and that I helped you choose a Cuttlebug. I sure do love mine! Have a super day!

  5. I love the flower garden card. Very cute. What can I not craft without? Hmm, hard decision, but I think I will say my paper trimmer. Although lately it has been my Big Shot with embossing folders. I have so many that I have been using them for everything. Thanks for the chance to win! Tami
    Tambo’s Creations

  6. Joy, I need that!!! My favorite tools are Atg gun and my cricut,Gyspy,Sorry can’t narrow down! Joy

  7. Joy,
    My favorite tool is your site. I love seeing what you’ve done and learning from your informative videos. Thanks for everything.

  8. So hard to just pick one! My ATG gun is a must but I also use my paper trimmer constantly! Thanks!!

  9. Hi Joy! Awesome card design! My favorite tool is my Gypsy. Well, I think that the under-estimated tool that i ALWAYS use is my x-acto knife… for everything. Cutting, moving, placing, scraping, splicing, separating layers, adding tiny blops of ink and/or glue…etc. Thank you for this opportunity. Hugs, Tammy

  10. I just love my Cricut machine. My husband got it for me for Valentines Day, 2 years ago. Love it, and love him too death!

  11. Love all your pretty cards and the comparison of the cuttlebug and big shot was very helpful. I have the cuttlebug but my daughter is debating so maybe this video will help her make up her mind. My most used tool is my paper trimmer but my favorite most enjoyed tool is the cricut.

  12. I really can’t narrow it down to just one. Love my cuttlebug and embossing folders; spellbinders dies; and cricut (of course).

  13. Cute flower cards. Really like the paper. The tool I couldn’t live without would be my very old Guillotine Paper Cutter. No matter what I am making, it is used more than once for each project.

  14. Very hard to pick but I would say my score board, ATG gun and Cricut. If I were to win I would give it to my friend or niece.

  15. So adorable as always! My fave tool are probably my border punches from EK Success. quick and easy to add some fancy to a simple card or layout!

  16. I had no idea the MS scoring board had the measurements to make envelopes! Let’s see my favorite tools: SCAL2 & my Cricut. Thank you for the chance to win.

  17. I love those cards! It’s great to mass produce so you have something ready in a jiffy! My absolute favorite tool is MTC, hands down. Now I just need a better cutting machine and I’m all set! Thanks for a great giveaway. I do have a scoreboard but this one looks much better!

  18. My favorite tools are the ATG gun, Circut and Cuttlebug. Thank you for your website and the videos. I am learning much!
