Painted Poppies Fancy Envelope

Hello and welcome to part 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set showcase. If you have missed the previous two instalments, you can find them here (part 1 and part 2).

For my project today, I would like to share with you a gorgeous envelope which can be used for a handmade card, gift card or note.

Let’s make it…

The envelope is created from a sheet of the Peaceful Poppies DSP. This should be cut to 16.4 x 17.1cm. If your DSP has an ‘orientation’, the 16.4cm edge will actually be the long side of your envelope. Score at 4.5cm and 12.6cm along the 17.1cm edge and at 3cm and 14.4cm along the 16.4cm edge. The 3cm section will be the ‘top’ flap if you are creating a portrait envelope.

Fold and burnish all the score lines and snip away the four corner rectangles created by the score lines. You can snip away a little extra to create tabs which will help the envelope to fold neatly. Adhere the bottom flap and side flaps using Tear & Tape.

Adhere a length of Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon to the front of the envelope using Tear & Tape and wrap around, tying in a bow at the back. To create the sentiment piece I stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I then cut out a label using one of the Painted Labels dies.

The poppy images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss cardstock and cut out using the coordinating dies. Arrange and adhere these to the front and the back of the sentiment piece. The sentiment piece was adhered to the fron of the envelope using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is added with a few Basic Adhesive-Backed Seqins. Now you are ready to fill your envelope as required, adding a special touch to your card or gift.
