I needed to make a bunch of thank you notes, so I wanted a quick design. Luckily, my design team sister Cassandra had showcased a great quick and easy design using the new My Creative Time You Are Fabulous stamp set during out last release. I followed her design, and just mixed it up a bit by using the Happy Thoughts stamp and die set, but I did use the watercolor stripe from You are Fabulous. My card is a 3 1/2" x 5".
Lately I've been addicted to making my own envelopes for my cards with my We R memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. I found this awesome Recollections paper pack below at Michael's. It's thin paper (like printer paper), which works really well for envelopes. I make them with the pattern on the inside, so it's easy to address the outside, but you still get a fun punch of color on the inside! And at only $10 (with a 50% off coupon) for 180 envelopes, it's a steal!
Here's a hint if you like to make 3 1/2" x 5" cards (4-Bar) and you have the Envelope Punch Board. I found that the directions on the board don't make quite the right size envelope. I cut a 7" square and make the first score line at 3".
Also, for a better A2 size envelope, I cut an 8" square, and make the first score line at 3 1/2".
