Envelope Punch Board (+playlist)




This is what I am using to make custom envelopes for my photo cards which turn out to be 6 1/2 x 4 1/2 .  There are no envelopes for this size card, but wa la! With this handy tool, no problem!!  Watch this little video to see how easy it is.

My New Project

I am so excited about this new line of cards I am designing.  I was talking to my friend Patsy the other day and I was telling her how much I loved photography.  It has always been a passion of mine.  I absolutely love taking nature photos.  What do you do with all those photos?

She suggested I incorporate my photography with my stamping.  I got excited about the idea and started experimenting.  Here are some of the ones I have done.    I think it is a very creative way to share your photos with others while making your own greeting cards, using stamps and card stock. Stampin" Up! has THE BEST card stock!  While using the whole 4 x 6 photo, I had to make customized envelopes using the Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch. So Easy!!

So please leave a comment and let me know what you think.  Should I continue with this idea? I have so many beautiful photo's I have taken over the years, I can make A LOT of cards!

I will be sharing more of these later this week!
