On Friday I shared a non-standard size card. One that I’d totally made up 🙂
I guess I could have put it in a standard envelope but then it would have been rolling around in there, possibly damaging it in transit – so I decided to make my own with the Sale-a-bration DSP – free with a £45 purchase.
The Envelope Punch Board takes all the guesswork out of cutting and scoring your paper. Simply look up the card size on the front of the board and it will tell you the size of paper you need to cut and where to line up the first edge to punch and score.
Bubbles & Fizz DSP was cut to a 7-1/8″ square and the left edge was lined up with the 2-3/4″ mark on the Envelope Punch Board. With the paper in place, the button at the top of the board was pressed to punch the paper and a line scored along the groove that runs diagonally from the centre of the button to the lower right corner of the Board. The paper was then rotated 90° counter clockwise and the scored line, lined up with the little pointer that juts out from the button (the score guide) then punched and scored again as before. This was repeated twice more. All the corners were then rounded by inserting them into the button from the opposite side and punching. After folding along the scorelines, the bottom corner was trimmed away for a neater finish and three sides of the envelope were adhered in place. The fourth had Tear & Tape adhered in place so that it can be stuck down once the card has been written and is ready for posting. Handwriting might be a little difficult to make out against the dark, stripey background and so a postage label was cut from Whisper White card and the corners punched with the Envelope Board before adhering it direct to the front of the envelope.
Here are the duo together.
