Hi! Alexia here and I want to share an idea on creating custom envelope, die-cut and embossed! I made a thank you card and a matching theme envelope using both Craftwell and Die-namites' products. Great combination of products to work with, I'm convinced to stock up Die-namites cutting dies!  ***Grin***



Here is the close-up shot for the beautiful embossed background, love that texture!


Here is how I create this custom envelope using my Cut 'n' Boss and Die-namites' die.

Step 1: Score vertically 1" from left and from the right. Turn around horizontally and score 4" from the left and followed by another 4" right after. 



Step 2: This step I use different card stock but you will need the same one from Step 1. Place cutting die on desirable area on the middle row then place the cutting mat about 1/2 inch below the scored line (as shown in picture). Run it through Cut 'n' Boss machine.


Step above should result the following


Step 3: This step is to create the embossed background for the front of the envelope. Trim a piece of card stock size 4" x 6.5" and I used the THANKFUL embossing folder from Teresa Collins. At the same time, make a cut-out in pink color using same flower die and trim off the leaves with scissor. Glue the embossed card stock to the back of card stock in Step 2. Adhere all flaps to form an envelope, except the top opening. Glue the pink flower cut-out to the flower on the front of envelope. 





Now you have a complete custom envelope! I also created a card using a different Die-namite's die, isn't the die so beautiful?!



Thank you for checking in, I hope you like the envelope and the card!
