Fall Flowers & the Envelope Template

For the month of November Stampin' Up! is having a Paper Party Promotion. This means that if you buy 3 packs of Designer Series Paper, you get 1 for FREE! Yea! Free stuff is always good! Stampin' Up! Designer Paper is so cute and such a good deal. The Five-in-One Card Cover Template (106523, $9.95, p. 169) also works wonderfully with the Designer Paper because it's double sided. This template includes five envelope styles in two sizes. The cards below show examples of what can be done from that one template. I love it!
This was made using the larger envelope template. It's size is 6 1/2" x 4". It's also a good size to put small gifts in. And it's so easy to use: Just lay the template on the paper you want to use, trace along the lines of the template using an embossing stylus (like the one on p. 187, 100663, $2.50), then cut out the shape of the envelope, and then fold along the inside lines and glue the envelope together!

This shows the envelope upside down, so you can see why the double sided Designer Paper is so perfect for this template. It makes such cute, decorative envelopes! This is the card I made for the inside. I love that Fall Flowers Designer Paper!

For this card I used the mini envelope template. It's size is 2 1/2" x 1 1/2". It makes the perfect accent for your cards or scrapbook pages and holds a little message nicely.

This picture shows the tag that goes inside of the mini envelope. It says: "Time passes...friendship stays right where it's put!" Once again, I am loving this Fall Flowers Designer Paper!
