The Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch Board is here!

My Envelope Punch Board arrived late Thursday and I can tell you that EVERYONE who has tried it has bought it! It is the best tool and you are going to love it. Do you always want to make an odd size card that won't fit into regular envelopes?  Well, right on the board is a list of 66 different sized cards and what size paper to cut for a perfect fit envelope . . . . cut your paper, line up to the 1st score measurement on the ruler, punch and score, turn paper, line up with the score guide, punch and score three more times. On the two long sides of your envelope that will be the top and bottom - use the corner rounder on the outside edge of the punch, fold on score lines, use glue dots or sticky strip and you have a super envelope!

Watch this video from Stampin' Up! and then email me or Click here to buy now!
Think of all the possibilities as you can make your cards with coordinating envelopes and use up some of that paper stash so you don't feel guilty about buying more! It's going to be so much fun making Christmas cards and envelopes to match. If you use darker patterns, just put a label on the front and it's good to go in the mail. Remember some of the smaller "gift card" sizes will not go through the post office, and some large envelopes may require extra postage.

Butterflies are in the news!

Most of us LOVE our butterflies and this bundle gives you the Bitty Butterfly Punch and the Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set together and you save 15%.
