Trudy's Workshop!

What a great time I had at Trudy's workshop showing the girls how to be use their products in ways other than what is intended for. First up I have a card using the Envelope Liner Framelits Dies to created a pocketed envelope for my card front:

Inside the envelope sits a tag that can be pulled out to reveal a sentiment:

You could also use this pocket to tuck in a gift card. Very easy to create. You just need to cut (2) of the smallest sized framelit and fold over one flap for the top one. Glue both pieces together on the sides and bottom!

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Gumball Green
  • Inks: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Corner Rounder Punch, Petite Curly Label Punch, Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder, Envelope Liner Framelits Dies, Sticky Strip
  • Accessories: Pearl Jewels, Delicate Details Lace Tape, 1/4 Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon

Card 2 is a file folder card created with the Envelope Punch Board:
