Scalloped Circle Card w/ Envelope

100_3084 I don’t make odd sized cards too often.  Simply because I don’t have envelopes to fit or they won’t mail or require additional postage.  In this case, we weren’t going to mail the card so I decided to try my hand at creating my own envelope to fit the smaller size of the Scalloped Circle die.   

100_3059     I began with a standard medium sized envelope that Stampin’ Up! carries.  I adhered the flap to the back and cut off the end just so it covers the scalloped circle card.  Then, I used a piece of DSP (the retired SAB Ice Cream Parlor was used for this envelope) to create a new flap.  I punched a Scallop Edge and secured the paper to the inside of the envelope.  I punched a 2-3/8” Scallop Circle in the envelope so that you can get the card in and out easily.  100_3077

     I decorated my envelope to coordinate with my card using the Hostess Level 1 Birthday Bakery set.  I used several markers and a Blender Pen to color in the image on the card and left the image on the 100_3078envelope with no color.  There is plenty of color on the DSP.

     The inside of the card is simply a strip of cardstock designed as a pocket to tuck a gift card into.  The sentiment is from Bring On The Cake.   

     I love how this card and envelope turned out!  The bright colors just make me happy!  I hope you’ve been inspired to do something that makes you happy today.  Thanks for stopping by.




All supplies are Stampin’ Up! and can be purchased here…except for the retired SAB DSP :)
