Day 17 – Petal Palette Showcase – Notebook & Envelopes

For a full tutorial, head over to my YouTube Channel – even better subscribe so your alerted to the new projects I cover.

This is the seventeenth project in the “Petal Palette Showcase” which shows you a different project every day for the month of June using only the Petal Palette Stamp Set & Petals & More Thinlits. I would recommend this project for a beginner who wants to add a new dimension to their cards.

The dimensions & equipment used are as follows:

Jotter pads are from the range – 4 for £1 – BARGAIN

Measure 9.25 x 6″ in Basic Black card stock, then score the card at 4.5″ and 4.75″ along the long edge.

The pocket on the inside 5″ x 3″ and score at half an inch around 3 edges, on the 2 short edges and along one of long edges

Fold and burnish and then cut the corners out of, so that it can close flush onto the card.

In whisper white, measure 2.5 x 3.5″ which is the mat which will sit on top of your flap for the envelopes.

I used white embossing powder to decorate the front of the folder, and back embossing powder in the whisper white inside.

Using versa mark ink, stamp 2 of the rose bundle flower stamps into the corners, sprinkle the white embossing powder and shake to cover the sticky ink, then use the heat gun.

On the whisper white piece of car, stamp again using the versamark ink, the leaf stamp, and sprinkle black embossing powder this time, shake to cover the sticky ink, then use the heat gun.

Cut a 2.5″ circle out of the sparkle glimmer paper, and then a 2″ circle out of basic black, stamp onto the black in versa mark “from the heart” and sprinkle white embossing powder as you have before.

Put tombow glue around the 3 edges of your pocket and stick to the inside front cover.

Put 2 dimensionals onto the black circle and stick it to the glimmer paper, and then 2 dimensionals onto the glimmer per and add to the front cover.

Use tombow glue to stick the whisper white with the leaves to the pocket.

I also used tombow glue to stick the jotter to the inside of the back cover.

For your envelopes, I used basic black card again. The yardstick needs to measure 6.5″ x 6.5″ then using your envelope punchboard, punch and score at 2.75″, then line up with the score line and work your way around all 4 edges. Round the corners that are left. Fold and burnish. Stamp a little flower onto the flap of your envelope with versa mark, sprinkle white embossing powder and heat emboss.

Glue along 2 sides of the envelope and stick together.
