Let’s make an envelope liner with the envelope punch board to dress up a quick Christmas card.  And because it’s Keep It Simple Sunday, you know it’s going to be super easy.  In fact, I’d say it’s [almost😉] instant gratification!  What could be better than that in our busy lives?

With Christmas fast approaching, I couldn’t resist going a bit crazy for plaid with my favourite annual catalogue paper, Under the Mistletoe!

TOTAL Coordination when You Make an Envelope Liner with the Envelope Punch Board

Plaids, poinsettias, dots, baubles and boughs in traditional festive colours!  Doesn’t it make you smile?

I guarantee there’s at least ONE pattern you will absolutely love in this package!  Just like this one with vellum and faceted gems.   Or mix and match them up a bit like I did for this super simple folded card. 

Let’s take another peek.

Who Wants to Make an Envelope Liner with the Envelope Punch Board

I dressed this pattern up with a side ribbon knot with the lovely cotton Real Red ribbon.  It perfectly coordinates with the matted circle behind my greeting and my plaid piece.  Do you need to make your card even quicker? Feel free to leave it off!

Timesaving bonus on this card?  I used circle punches, not die cuts.  They NEVER go out of style and you can add some POP with the Starburst punch in gold glimmer paper.  A few quick squeezes of a punch, some glue and your card is done!

OK how about I give you the card cuts and steps so you can make it yourself?

I LOVE to Make an Envelope Liner with the Envelope Punch Board

  1. Adhere plaid paper to Real Red panel.
  2. Wrap ribbon around left side of panel and knot.  TIP: use a small amount of SNAIL on top and bottom and attach end of ribbon to the SNAIL.  Apply more SNAIL over ribbon before adhering to front of card.
  3. Cut out starburst from gold glimmer paper.
  4. Stamp your greeting in Real Red on piece of Whisper White.  Punch out with the 2” circle and glue to glimmer circle.  TIP: Use liquid glue for best adhesion.
  5. Punch out 2 1/4” circle from Real Red scrap.  Adhere to back of glimmer circle with dimensionals.  Glue to middle front of card.
  6. Attach red rhinestones as desired.

Here’s the BEST part!  Make the envelope and liner along with me!

Did you check out my video tutorial to make your envelope and liner?  

While my card was intended for Christmas would YOU use it any time of year (maybe with a different greeting?)  Leave me a comment and let me know.

Crafting festive cards should be quick and easy.  Whether you are a “seasoned” stamper, or one just catching the stamping “bug”, you’ll have fun with this fast design.  And once you’ve made it, be sure to dress it up even more and make an envelope liner with the envelope punch board.
