Click through for the full step by step tutorial.
Envelope Card Tutorial:
Christmas themed patterned papers
Large & small scallop circle die
Large & small classic circle die
Scoring board & bone folder
Ribbon, Twine & Button
Step by Step Guide:
Cut 4 scallop circles from the red card and 2 classic circles from the patterned papers.
Cut the 2 circles in half. Be mindful of which way you cut them if they have a pattern that needs to be upright.
Fold the scallop circles in half and crease well with a bone folder.
Adhere the patterned papers to the front of the scallop circles. You will need a top, bottom, left and right, as shown.
Taking the top section, apply a little bit of glue to the scallops on the left.
Using the scoring board, adhere the left hand section at a right angle.
Repeat for the other side, tucking it under the top section.
For the bottom section, tuck the right side under and leave the left side on on top to that is knits together as shown.
Cut a piece of red card measuring 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and a piece of white card measuring 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″
Adhere the white card to the red and stamp the sentiment.
Adhere to the middle section of the card.
To make the belly band, cut a piece of red card measuring 1 1/4″ x 10″. Add a piece of double sided tape to the inside of one end, and the outside of the other end.
Fold it around the card and adhere the ends to each other at the back.
Cut a piece of patterned paper measuring 1 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ and adhere to the front of the belly band.
Cut a scalloped circle and a classic circle using the smaller dies.
Layer the circles together and adhere to the belly band. I added some white ribbon before attaching the circles.
Colour up your image and use the matching die to cut it out.
Using 3D foam dots, adhere Rudolf to the centre of the circles.
That’s it! All ready to send some Christmas cheer!
