You have made a beautiful card and now you want to make your own envelope. So that's what we're going to do. My name is Janet Casto. I'm your independent demonstrator with Stampin' Up and here's how I like to make envelopes using this template. All I've done is taken a piece of card stock, trace the template that I need and there is different sizes you can get. This one has as small as 1 and 1/2 and as large as 3 X 2 so you can make any size envelope that you'd like. So once I've traced it the next thing I'm going to do is cut it out. So here I've cut it out and then all I need to do is score along my lines and your template shows you where you need to score. So I've scored and there is two ways to score. You could use your cutter scorer and score here or you can take your stylist and just line it up and push down in the groove. That's another way to score. So now go ahead and fold your ends in, make sure everything is scored very nicely and it is and then you are just going to apply a little adhesive on one end, fold that up, and on the other end and fold that up and then you take your greeting card, whatever you have made, whatever you have stamped on it, whether it be a birthday card or an invitation, slide it into your envelope, do your last and final adhesive and seal your card and there you have it. A quick and easy envelope that will coordinate with your card. You can use designer's series paper on the inside and really make a beautiful envelope. So I'm Janet Casto, your independent demonstrator with Stampin' Up. Take your cards and embellishments and then use your envelopes to coordinate with them. You'll have a lot of fun doing this and I'll be looking for one in the mail.
