Making Envelopes for Flower Cards

I'm loving the Simply Scored Scoring Tool from Stampin Up, and especially the Diagonal Plate which is used when making envelopes.

Today I'm showing how I made an envelope to fit the 3D Azalea card I posted yesterday. I have seen a video from Mike on how to make custom envelopes to make any sized card, so I basically followed that, plus added a bit to allow for the 3D flower.

Step one: line up the corners of the card so that they are at the same measurement point on the top and on the left hand side.
 
Step two:  cut paper to the correct size according to Mike's video tutorial.


Step Three: Put the card on top of the paper to line up the points again as in step one, and score 1/8" away from the points along the diagonal lines.


This is where I added another 1/4" score line to add a little room for the flower.


Fold up the paper around your card to make sure it fits.


Use the adhesive of your choice to stick the bottom flap to the side flaps.

I actually made a mistake with this and didn't cut the paper quite as a square, but it still fits the card, so it will be OK.

The paper used to make this envelope is from the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper pack.

If you'd like to order the scoring tool or paper pack from me, please let me know.

    I'll be placing my next order on 1st September to get some new stuff, so let me know if you want me to get it for you.
