Create File Folder Cards with the Envelope Punch Board!
I was able to create some cute File Folder Cards with Stampin’ Up!’s new Envelope Punch Board! I made one for a birthday:
I LOVE to add a little sparkle to my cards and Stampin’ Up! makes it easy with Rhinestones, Silver ribbon and Silver Glimmer paper 🙂 I did “fussy cut” the flower stem but that’s actually not difficult as long as you use the Paper Snips and remember to leave a little border around the image when trimming. I added the flower stem to the front of the card with Glue Dots and the flowers with Dimensionals. I also lightly curled the edges of the petals with a bone folder.
I left the bottom of the card (when opened) blank to allow room for a personal message. You can also tuck a gift card, check or cash under the ribbon for the lucky birthday person 🙂

and one for Halloween:
I have to admit I was a little creeped out by the bats on the Witches’ Brew Designer Series paper initially but I’ve since warmed up to them!
And no, there is not a punch for the little skulls but it’s a very easy trim with our Paper Snips (remember to leave a border around the image when trimming too :-). You have room at the bottom of the card to write your own message and can tuck a flat candy under the ribbon for a special treat!

I should probably warn you: File Folder cards are VERY addicting! It’s almost impossible to make just one 🙂 I have both of my cards in the “landscape” position but you can also rotate them and have them open from the right like a more traditional card.
I’ll post a step by step photo tutorial in the next day or so to show you how easy it is to create these too-cute file folder cards 🙂
