This is Priyadarshini, Creative Designer @craftyscrappers
and today I have a different card project.
Its a envelope card tutorial.
Generally its a card in an envelope but I have turned an envelope into a card. Its a fun project and many ways to get creative with this.
But I am keeping it plain and simple for this tutorial.
For this tutorial i have used, Craftyscrappers beautiful critters stamp:
What’s up duck?
along with the versatile stencil,
Create-a-scene(CLOUDS,LAND AND GRASS)
But before I start, let me tell you our challenge for the month of JULY is ongoing,

So here’s my Finished Envelope Card:
To make an envelope, I took a card stock measuring 10″ x 10″.
I placed it on my scoreboard an with the help of envelope template (which also has guide to make an envelope) I scored along the desired measurements to make an envelope.
Cut the marked areas to create a triangle. Creating this small triangle helps the help close easily. The inside of the card measures 6.5″ x 6.5″
Then I used Misti stamping tool for stamping (makes it very easy if I miss some areas while stamping). I used Altenew Jet black ink. Any black ink works. I have used What’s up duck stamps. Its a very beautiful stamp set with ducks and works for any weather themed card.
I love colouring my images with colour pencils. I used Biyano colour pencils for colourng my stamped images. I fuzzy cut them using Tim Holtz scissors.
To make the duck look like its sitting on water, I created a small slit in the water image and inserted my duck into the slit.
I used create a scene stencil from craftyscrappers to create clouds and land. I used distress oxide inks and distress inks for stenciling.
I adhered all the stamped pieces onto my stenciled background. I added this onto a back card stock (if you do not have a black card stock, take a white card piece and apply black ink onto the edges). Add this piece to the center of the envelope.
I added ribbon on the back of the card. I stamped some images from the stamp set on the front of the card. I have left the sides of the card empty to write personal message. Since I focused more on the tutorial, I left the card front simple. Alternatively, the same can be decorated using pattern papers both on the out and in of the card.
