Today’s card is one of the cards I made for my envelope punch board class. For this class I wanted to show why it is worthwhile to invest in the Stampin Up envelope punch board #133774. I put off buying the punch board because I thought it was just another tool to collect dust and really I make standard cards and buy standard envelopes and I was happy. The my sister and Stampin Up upline told me you need it because you can make boxes, cards, treat bags and lots more than envelopes so I took the plunge. Of course, I got it and it remained in the box unopened in a drawer for months. So I decided to challenge myself to have a workshop to feature and use the envelope board. I was scared because I did not want to disappoint my customers so I googled “how to use my Stampin Up board” and life has not been the same since. There was so many samples that I became overwhelmed and had a very successful workshop. So over the next month or so I will be showing the stuff I made with this fabulous must have tool!
I saw this card in the Stampin Up annual catalog on pg 130. It made me giddy that I could use the envelope punch board to make a card. I used the Naturals Composition DSP (no longer available) as the card base and them just used the punch board to notch the sides of the card. I then punched butterflies from 3 shades of cardstock using the Elegant Butterfly #127526 punch. I stamped random images from the Summer Silhouettes #126447 and the Wetlands stamp set #126697 and added a Curly Cute (no longer available) sentiment hand cut banner.
