Winter Frost

This is the Christmas card that we made at card class last week.  I love the Winter Frost designer series paper.  I've seen so many beautiful cards made with it.  And I love the ornament and the embossed snowflake.  A simple card but oh, so pretty.

Envelope Board.

At card class on Thursday we made a Christmas card, which I'll show you later, and then we made an envelope to match.  So here's the envelope.  It was white and we stamped an ornament on the front of it.  Sorry for the rotten picture,  I don't know what happened.
And here's the inside of the envelope with a liner that we made using the new envelope liner framelit.  It's made to fit the Stampin' Up! envelopes that have a curved flap.

And then yesterday I saw an envelope liner by Mary Fish that fits the envelopes made with the envelope board.  I don't think of these things but I'm sure glad that someone does.  It's just a 4 x 4 piece of the Designer Series Paper.  When you adhere it be sure that it's down far enough so that the side flaps cover the edge of the paper. 

And of course the best way to make a beautiful envelope that is lined is just to use Designer Series Paper for the envelope.  You just have to be sure to use a white label to write the address on.

So do you have an envelope board yet?  Making envelopes is so easy and you can make beautiful envelopes to match your cards.  Think of the beautiful invitations, Christmas cards or just regular cards that you can make.  It's also a wonderful value.  It's only $19.95 plus shipping and handling.  And in my opinion the best part is that the instructions are printed right on the board so there's not much chance of losing them.

Bigz bow die.

Have you seen the new bigz bow die?  It's on page 37 of the Holiday catalog.  It make  a bigger bow than I thought it would but I think it'll be great on presents this Christmas.  Here are three cards with bows on them.  You can see how big a bow it makes.  You can also see how different the bow looks depending on how you place the tails. 

Sandi Dailey made this last card.  I love how she did the tails on this card.

About a week and a half ago I showed you a frame with Christmas décor in it.  Well, when I was making that one I kept thinking that Halloween would be a great holiday to do some more décor.  And here it is.  I need to get a frame for it. 
Here's close up's of a couple of the elements on it.

I used the new orange glitter on the shoe and I really like it.

This haunted house stamp is in the Best of 25 series.  Do you remember a few years ago when this was current?  It was bigger then but I like this smaller version.

Envelope board is here.

I've been playing with the new Envelope Board from Stampin' Up! and I love it.  Here's some of the envelopes that I've made.  You can make 66 different sizes using the board. 

Here's the board.  It's only $19.95 so let me know when you want one.  The directions are printed right on the board so you can't lose them.  And you have two choice when deciding what size you want to make.  You can see the card size and you can see the paper size.  So if you have a card you just measure it and find the size on the board and it will tell you what size paper you need.  But suspose you have a piece of paper that you don't want to throw away.  You can measure the paper and then see the size on the board and it'll tell you what size card it will fit. 

 Here's a close up of the board.  When you've decided what size envelope you want to make the board tells you where to score the paper.   And now comes the best part.  You only have to measure one time.  After you score the paper then you just turn it a quarter turn and place the score line under the point that you can see here.  Then score the next line and keep turning until you've scored all four sides.  And as you score each side you can push down on the big white button and it'll put the notches in for you.  I know that this would be very easy to understand if I had a video but you'll probably be able to find a video on You Tube.  And if anyone has any hints and tips about video's please let me know.
