I used my Scor-Pal to make my vellum envelope. To make an envelope for an A7 (5”x7”) card, I use a letter sized piece of paper, I score each side at 5/8” (length-wise), then turn the paper 90 degrees and score at 2” and 7 ¼”…….then I folded and trimmed it and rounded the corners.
For the front of the envelope I used four of those beautiful “Silver Classic Photo Corners”, one for each corner. I designed three hearts, three different sizes and the largest one is scalloped. I did the design using my Pazzles software. I used my Pazzles to cut them. I embossed the scalloped one using my “Textile” embossing folder. The center heart is cut from some mirror type cardstock that I have on hand…do not know who it is made by and truthfully, I’ve had it so long that I can’t even remember where I got it from! I used my Pazzles with the Pen Tool and the "Edwardian Script" font to draw “Robert and Sarah” with my “EraserMate” pen, then I embossed it using silver embossing powder and my heat gun.
I cut a “liner” just a bit smaller than the envelope out of Epson Bright White Paper and also embossed the liner “flap” using my “Textile” embossing folder. I also cut a smaller scalloped heart using my Pazzles, embossed it and used it for a “closure”. I cut a “slit” in the back of envelope that the bottom of the heart fits into to fasten it.
I almost always make my own envelopes to match the cards I make!
