So, I’ve recently joined Pinterest (*sigh* I know…. I’ve fallen prey to the Dark Side). Found this gem whilst cruising over there:
It was made by the very talented Darlene over at Darlene Design.
Well, this morning my sister mentions that she has a wedding to attend this evening, and asked if I’d make her a card. Sure! I know just the one.
Here’s my version:
I used all scraps, from making the card from kraft paper to cutting the hearts from leftover Laundry Line. The only thing that wasn’t a scrap was the card, itself. Yeay! Love it when I can use up scraps!
Anyway, I posted this on a Message Board I’m a member of, and got a request for the pattern for the envelope…. Pattern…. Right….. You mean, we’re supposed to use one of those? Because, I’d just winged it. So I figured I could work it out and figure out what the dimensions are.
My envelope is 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4 “. So, that’s what I made the template for. It would be very easy to make it bigger/smaller, but I figured I’d just give you what I did. In the card I made, I didn’t put a top flap on. You know? The flap that comes down from the top of the envelope to seal it up? Yeah, what was the point of putting that on if I was going to just cover it up. But in the template, I’ve included the top flap.
And just for kicks and giggles, if you want to print off several at a time, here’s a full page:
You can print them off on heavy card stock and just cut and glue. Or, you can print one out and trace around it as a template. The files are 8 1/2 x 11, standard US paper. You can click on the photo for a larger size. Feel free to use the template, but remember, please link back here if you post it online! Hope you enjoy it!
