I had fun making this simple card and coordinating envelope. It is a 4 x 12 piece of card stock with a 1 x 12 strip from the Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper pack scored at 4" and 8". This makes a 4x4 card and I have the envelope instructions below.
The front panel uses one of the stamps in the Patterned Occasions stamp set, the birthday cupcake, and I inked it with a variety of Stampin' Write Markers. It was punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch, layered on a 2" Lucky Limeade Circle from the Circles #2 Originals Die and that was layered on a Melon Mambo 2 3/8" Scallop Circle. The little Daffodil Delight banner is a 1/2" x3 1/2" and I hand cut the ends with my Paper Snips.
I added my greetings from the One in a Million stamp set (order it in Clear #126382 or Wood #126380) and punched them out with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch. I added a knot of Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon to one of the arrow clips out of the Hung Up Cute Clip pack.
I also made a coordinating envelope for my card using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and my FREE Simply Scored Diagonal Plate. Yes, I said FREE, you can choose the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate FREE when you place a $50 order with me during Sale-a-bration. It is one of 19 FREE products you can choose FREE with your orders through March 22nd.
I love using the Designer Series Paper Stacks for my envelopes as the patterns are subtle and the sheets are perfect for a variety sizes of envelopes. I cut a 12x12 sheet of Lucky Limeade Polka Dots from the 2011-2013 In Color Paper Stack into a 7" square and placed in on the Diagonal Scoring Plate. I scored it at 3 1/4" on all four sides. Punch the little triangles on each side with a 1 1/4" Square Punch and fold the flaps up to create your envelope....SO EASY!
