Another Card

I had another baby shower to go to last night. This time I decided to make my own envelope too. I need more practice at folding the envelopes correctly, but it still turned out ok. For the card I used New Arrival and Plantin Schoolbook (sorry the picture is kinda small). I used zig glue to glue the sides of the envelope. Is there something better I can use?

Did you cut your envelope from Plantain Schoolbook? Very cute card Lisa!

Oh and do you score the lines first before folding? That is the only easy way to get straight lines with the envelopes! Take a ruler and a scorer (or another ruler or something) and score the lines. They cut the tiny little notches on the sides, so you can line up your ruler to those lines, score, then fold.

I do have a cutter that has a scoring blade, but I didn't use it. I will try that with the next one.

Carrie, I used New Arrival for the envelope. I think it was envelope 1.

CUTE card. I have no clue on envelopes. I am good if I find time to make the card, let alone an envelope!
