Sale-a-bration Patterned Occasions Fun Fold

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.

DiagonalplateI 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.

EnvelopesnipI 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!
