In my post for today, I am using 2 brand new Stampin' Up! products – Thinlits Circle Card & Envelope Punch Board.   In addition, I have some detailed steps to show you, using the Envelope Punch Board.

These thinlits are soooo easy to use and they make it easy to create a flashy card.  The Best of 25 Years  Halloween Set was still on my table from yesterday and I wanted to make a card with the haunted house, so, opportunity knocked!


The scalloped circle that the house is stamped on comes with the Thinlits Circle Card.  I mounted that on a 2-1/2" circle punched from Pumpkin Pie c.s..

The designer paper is from the Witches' Brew dsp pack.  Look closely and you will see a scalloped border punched in Silver Glimmer Paper.  Rhinestone Basic Jewels adorn the scallops on the Summer Starfruit Scallop Circle.


I made a matching envelope using the new Envelope Punch Board.

Card & envie
The Punch Board is really easy to use.  Let me show you the process used to create my envelope.

1.  Look on the board to find the size of your card.  Right next to it is the size of the paper that you need.  And, right next to that is the score measurement.

Because I amade a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card, the board told me to cut an 8" x8" piece of paper.  And, score it at 3-1/2".


2.  Notice that the left edge of my paper is at the 3-1/2" mark.    Push the button at the top.  This makes the v-cut so the envelope will fold easily.  Using the scoring tool provided, put it in the grrove at the top, and draw it toward the lower right.

3. Rotate the paper counterclockwise 90 degrees.  Line the score line up with the piece that protrudes from the bottom of the button.  If you look very carefully near that piece that stciks out, you will see my score line.  


4.  Press the button at the top of the board and score again.  Rotate the paper counterclockwise 90 degrees.  Repeat!  Fold along the score lines.

Take a close look to see that score line lined up with the "pointer finger".

Here's a picture of what the paper looks like after you have finished punching & scoring.

5.  If you would like the flap of the envelope to have a rounded tip, then insert the flap on the top side of the button as shown in the picture below. Press the button to round your corner.

The following pic shows the rounded corner on the flap.

6.  Use whatever adhesive you choose to seal the edges of the envelope and you are finished!  Oops, I guess you need to address it and mail it!
