Hi all,

Hope you all had a smashing weekend! As always mine was jam packed, this weekend with Kayaking, BBQ's, dancing, family, friends, a birthday party and of course lots of fun. 

Today I am sharing with you a card that I put together using the Envelope Punch Board.  If you don't own one of these or never seen one in action, it is a great tool for making custom size envelopes and so much more.  Have a quick search on Pinterest and you will find some fantastic project samples and it really is so straight forward to use!  Mine is always on my craft desk now!

Now this isn't a card that is designed to stand on a shelf, more of a note card to send someone.  Inside the envelope you will find a 4" x 5" card that pulls out (you could make it a card that opens but we'll save that for another day maybe!).   The great thing about the Envelope Punch Board is you only need to know the size of your card to cover, and all the other measurements are given to you so it's just a matter of scoring and punching followed by a bit of folding!

I have added a smaller piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the card, and a bit of stamping.  Here I have used the Tabs for Everything Stamp Set with the coordinating Circle Tab Punch to create the tab on the top. 
To decorate the envelope (because it would look pretty boring without it!), I have used some Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock to create a belly-band, followed by a 2" strip of DSP that I have punched at either end with the Scalloped Tag Topper PunchThis has been secured with a bit of silver ribbon.  

The decoration on the edge has been created with a selection of dies from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits in Basic Black and Lemon Lime Twist.  Underneath I have swirled some Silver Mini Sequin Trim to add some shine and the tiles have been stamped with a sentiment from the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set.  

What do you think?

Have a great day!
