Envelope Flap Card

 I'm having so much fun with the new Sew Many Stitches stamp set. Today I used it on an envelope flap card that also features the Singing Praises stamp set.

 Here's how I created this fun envelope card:

Cut a piece of colored card stock to measure 5.5" x 4.25"

Cut a piece of white card stock to measure 8" x 5.5" - Fold in half to form a card.

For the patterned paper pieces, you will need:

  • One 5.25" x 4" piece
  • One 3.75" x 3.75" piece
  • One 5.25" x 1.25" piece

Fold the 3.75" square in half - corner to corner to form a triangle.

Add adhesive to one side and stick it to the back of your white card point facing downward. This forms the envelope flap.

Glue your 5.25" x 4" piece of patterned paper to the front of your card and glue the card to the colored cardstock base. 

Add the 5.25" x 1.25" strip to the inside of your card.

Decorate your card as desired, making sure to leave an opening behind your image to tuck the envelope flap into. 

Here's how I finished the inside of the card.
