Puppy Love #2 & Free Envelope Template

This is the second card I made with the Recollections stamp set called Valentine’s day. This card is made almost identical to the first one with two differences – the background and I partially cut out the puppies before adhering them to the card front.

If you are interested in seeing the first card and instructions on how to make it you will find it here. and I have a video here that describes the products a little more.  I will have a tutorial video on Friday showing how I made the cards if you would like to watch that for further instructions.

I am creating some custom envelopes to go with the cards. Envelopes are really easy to make and you can customize them to any size card you are creating. I have a copy of the envelope template you can print out and create your own envelope.Envelope Template  Print it out on white or colored paper or you can do like I did and pull it into a software program like Photoshop and fill with a pattern if you like.

Today I am using 33 lb premium laser jet paper.  It is a little heavier than regular copy paper. I printed it onto a piece of pattern paper I created from Photoshop.   The pattern has a slight hint of pink with some circle dots that are random all over the page. I wanted to have a little interest on the inside of the card. I will prepare the envelope so that the pattern is in the inside.

I have cut out the template and then I fold back all the pieces of the envelope.

Now I am going to do some stamping on it before I show you how to assemble the envelope. I am using the sentiment stamp XOXO, the paw and the heart and I will stamp a pattern around the bottom of the card with some red and black die ink.

To seal the envelope I am using some be creative adhesive and place on both sides of the envelope. You will want to use an adhesive that is strong and will hold the envelope.

I then stamp some more on the other side of the envelope. This is a great way to customize your envelopes and use your stamps more.

 

Join me on Wednesday where I will share the last card I made and a recipe for home-made glue so you can seal the envelopes or give them to someone as a gift.  You can always use a matching washi tape to close the envelopes as well.

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

Go do something creative today.  I would love to see what you are working on.  Leave me a comment and a picture!
