A card with an envelope tutorial

Hi all! Donna here for a simple step-by-step card-making tutorial.

My card will have a matching envelope (template by Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs) and perfect for those with bulky embellishments.

1. Print and cut your envelope

2. Cut base for you card. Mine is 4.75x4.75

4. Cut a 2x6 strip of paper and use your preferred border puncher for added touch.

Adhere this to the flap of the envelope as seen below.

5. Ink the edges of the base card with Distress Ink.

6. Start designing your card. I first cut approx. 4.5x4.5 paper and also inked the edges.

7. Cut another paper approx. 3.75x6inches and use a border puncher to 3 strips as seen below.

Then layer the strips as seen below

8. Stamp your sentiment to a piece of square paper. I used Pebbles Happy birthday stamp.

and adhere it on top along with the other embellishments (Dear Lizzy Neopolitan CB shapes and OA Sidewalks flower stack).

I used foam tapes for added dimension.

9. I adhered the flower/leaves a little bit off-center

Hope you like it!
