Yes, ok, I admit it, I am addicted……. to my Envelope Punch Board!
I have had a few people asking for some basic instructions on how to use this fantastic tool, so I thought I would share with you a video made by Mary Fish, which explains the process very clearly and simply. Thanks Mary.
Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sq23wwHPeZM
And here is my card in the same size as the one in the video with matching lined envelope. This time I have used standard cardstock to make my envelope (in Pumpkin Pie), and while it is a lot heavier than a standard envelope, it will still go through standard mail ok, and protect your wonderful handmade creation a lot better too! Of course, you can also use patterned papers for the envelopes if you prefer.
I have used the Witches Brew Designer Series Paper (#132185) for this card. Halloween is not something that we celebrate much here in Australia, but I loved the colours of these papers and thought they would be great for some masculine cards! And the stamped image is again from the Love You More stamp set (#131853) available until the 27th January 2014.
So make sure you get your order in for these items before they go, by clicking here. And feel free to leave a comment or send me an email if you have any questions.

Love your card & envelope. I just got the punch board, which I love. Envelopes are so costly(not to mention boring); now we can mix & match. Thanks so much for link to Mary Fish- that tut was so helpful. Then I went to the bow link & all thanks to you. Hugs.
Thank you Pat, yes now we can have gorgeous envelopes! Glad you found the tutorial helpful, I will keep linking up anything I find using the Punch Board, since there are so many clever people out there, I may as well share their creativity 🙂 Have fun with your punch board!
Thank you Chris. So very easy. Love it. Now what do you suggest I do with the Envelope Liners Framelits Dies? I guess the small one would make a nice gift card holder. Any other ideas?
This is pretty fabulous! I got a large sizzix envelope die (a2), but I never used it. This I like better anyway.
