A *Must Have* Tool For Card Makers

If you read my blog, you know that I love to make handmade cards.  I've been making them for as long as I can remember & recently I discovered a new tool that I am crazy about.  I think it takes a card from "pretty" to "WOW!" and it couldn't be easier to use.

Do I have your attention now?  ;)

Here's an example of the tool in action:
 So here's the tool I'm so excited about.  It's called the Envelope Punch Board & it's available now in the Studio Calico shop.
I've used other "envelope tools" in the past & this one is far superior in my opinion.  You can create an envelope to fit any size card & only takes a minute.  You can also make boxes, bows & other fun things with it.  It's very versatile.  It comes with a scoring tool that fits inside & the board itself is small & really easy to store.

I love using patterned paper to create beautiful, coordinating envelopes.  I've even made envelopes out of other things (I just made a set of enveloped out of maps that are really cool!)

 This was a sympathy card I made recently using a Lindsay Letters Scripture Card & some vintage paper from Studio Calico & Sassafras.  I made a rosette flower out of muslin (tutorial found here) & I think the envelope just brought everything together.

If you have any questions about the new tool, let me know.  I think you're going to love it!

  1. This looks quite good. Do you end up with a pointy up bit or do you get a neat v shape on the inside of your envelope?
