The Day Dreams Medallions stamp set coordinates perfectly with the Floral Frames Framelits and makes this card easy to create.

day-dream-medallionsI saw this card in the Stampin’ Up! catalog and wanted to create a version of it.  It is hard to see in the photo but the card front is actually a window – cut with the framelit.  And the flowers are stamped and layered on the inside of the card front.  In order to accommodate the large image the card is a square 5″ x 5″ card.  Since our regular envelopes don’t fit I created my own envelope using a piece of Designer Paper and my Simply Scored and Diagonal plate.


I know you’ll want to know a little more about making the envelope so here are some measurements for you.

  • The card is 5×5 finished size.
  • The Designer Paper is cut to a 8″ x 8″ square.
  • use the Simply Scored with the Diagonal Plate – place the paper in the corner and score on all four sides diagonally at 3-3/4″.
  • square-enve-templateOn each side the score lines will overlap and form a small triangle – cut those away.
  • Then fold on the score lines.
  • dsp-square-enveFold in two opposite sides.  And some adhesive to the bottom triangle and fold it up to create the envelope.
  • Slide in your card.
  • You can make the top flap sticky by applying Multipurpose Liquid Glue and let it dry completely- this forms a repositionable adhesive on the flap.  The Two-Way glue pen works the same way.

Have a great day!
