Create File Folder Cards with the Envelope Punch Board!

Posted by on September 30, 2013 in Greeting Cards | 2 comments

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 🙂


Stamps:  Field Flowers, Flower Shop, Simply Sketched, Remembering Your Birthday

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!


Stamps:  Halloween Hello, Halloween Bash

Ink:  Pumpkin Pie, Black Stazon

Paper:  Very Vanilla, Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper

Accessories:  Lg Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Decorative Label punch, Dimensionals, Rhinestones, Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon, Envelope Punch Board


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 🙂


  1. I wanna make one too. Will be looking for your instructions. Yours are really NICE!

  2. Looking forward to your instructions. Would make great Christmas gift card holders.
