It's Mojo Monday
Sketch time and the elements fell into place using Stampin' Up!'s Wild About You and Party Hearty stamp sets. Plus, my main focus today will be to show you a step-by-step guide to creating custom envelopes using Designer Series Paper and an envelope template.
TIPS: I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to to stack the words of the sentiment (vs. all on one line) and markers to color individual words. The elephant and party hats were snipped out and pumped up on Stampin' Dimensionals. The polka dot texture was produced by my Big Shot and Texturz Plates.

My dear, virtual pal, Sandy Grupka, surprised (spoiled) me recently with a package of papercrafting goodies. I always have wanted to be able to make easy envelopes. Among my new treasures were Kreate-a-lope envelope making templates for both A2 (4 3/8" x 5 5/8") and A7 (5" x 7 1/8") sizes. Click here
for further details on this product.
I used the sizing template (open in the middle) and envelope template (rectangle) for an A2 Envelope.
You can either center an image on the designer paper in the middle of the open area or line it up in the corner to use the two clean edges, as I did with this charming Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper.
Hold down the template edge and carefully begin to tear against the outside of the template.
The torn edge is a bit rough. TIP: I used my Stampin' Up! Craft & Paper Scissors (108360–they cut like "budda") to quickly clean up the torn edges.
Flip the Designer Paper over.
First, fold in the sides, around the envelope template (rectangle).
Fold up the bottom and adhere (isn't this cool)?
Here's my finished envelope!
