Envelope Envy Video Part Three: Embossed Flap

Stampin up elegant bouquet embossing folder

Here is one of my favorite ways to add "wow"–embossed envelop flaps that coordinate with my hand made cards!  And it's lickety split simple.  The third installment of my Envelope Envy Video Tutorial Series is ready to show you how: 


  • I simply adore using catalogs for inspiration.  The page that inspired me today was from a home organization product catalog.
Stampin pretty with all my heart bird punch
  • Stampin up elegant bouquet See the neat row of scallops on the left side of the main panel?  I cropped two big scallops at a time from a Fancy Flower Punch (a fun little tidbit I learned at Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference).
  • Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder adds a whopping dose of matching texture to both the card and envelope flap.
  • Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware provides some glam in the form of a flower brad on the bird wing and the Designer Label Holder.  Very cool!
