Our week-long showcase on the Hello There Silhouette card class continues with Nichol’s rendition of this sweet ‘floopy’ flower card.

Love the color choices and the stamped sentiment on the banner. All the extra bits and baubles are just icing on the cake.

Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I added stamping detail to the ‘floopy flower’ card using a background stamp and tone-on-tone ink. Next, I stamped a circle design on a contrasting cardstock and added it for the flower center and then added a stamped/embossed vellum banner across the front for my greeting. I then used a light yellow for the inside of my card and backed the front with vellum. For the coordinating envelope I stamped a cute little greeting near the bottom.


darling.

I’m just a wee bit excited. ;)

    Aloha Kerri,
    I was wondering if it was possible for you to teach us how to make an envelope to fit any size card? Maybe in the new class or a tutorial on the blog. Silhouette wasn’t very helpful when they replied to me to use the scale window?!? I have ruined envelopes and know there must be an easy way to create one. Hugs & Mahalo.

      Hey Candy!
      One of the easiest ways to do it is to draw a rectangle the same size as your card and then size your envelope so that that rectangle fits in the designated card-holding space.

      I think I did bring that up once in one of my classes…can’t remember which one.

      If you’re talking a square card with an already-created rectangle envelope, then you can do the same thing, but then you’d need to worry about making the envelope fit a square space, if that’s what you’re wanting. Sometimes just moving the side handles, changing just the width (or height) to make it more square can work, but that can alter the design of the envelope too. If the points are few in number, you can always grab the points and move them in on each side.

      But that first option is a pretty sure-fire way to make sure your card and envelope pretty much match up.

      Does that help at all?
