Crimped Envelope Pocket Card World Card Making Day Post #2

The Crimped Envelope Card

    Another card that I have not made in a while but it is a really nice affect with the crimping of the case or holder made from a envelope. 

Here are the supplies you will need:
  • A2 size Envelope
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Crimper
  • Tape runner
  • Stamps, stickers or diecuts 
  • Cardstock for inside of card
The four easy steps.................

   *  First seal the envelope just like you would if you already had the card in there and you were going to mail it. 
   * Second cut a 1 1/4" of the short side of the envelope.  Keep the piece you cut off it will become your topper for the card cover.  The rest of the envelope will make a pocket that holds the card and will become crimped with our paper crimper. 
   *  Third I ran an ink pad over the sides and edges of mine and stamped it with a canvas background stamp.  Next run the large part of the envelope through your paper crimper making sure the cut edge is off to the side.
    * Fourth  you have made the outside or holder for the card now you will cut the insert portion of the card out of your neutral colored cardstock the dimensions for this should be 4" by 4 1/4".  You can get creative here and add layers and so forth to this insert.  
     Keep in mind that you can make this card a million different ways with any size envelope.  It could be a gift card holder, you could make a vintage style one with a manilla envelope or you could make a clear vellum one and put confetti in it.  I could go on and on here the possibilites are endless.

Happy card making,
