PPA 110 & Simply Scored Envelope Video Tutorial

Stampin up halloween card blog frightful sight idea square punch

Simple and spooky describe today's project.  It was both fun to make and required minimal Stampin' Up! supplies.  I also whipped up a new video tutorial sharing in more detail the Stampin' Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122334) and how to create a coordinating designer envelope for a standard  4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.

ENVELOPE FOR A2 (4 1/4" X 5 1/2") CARD

  • Cut Designer Series Paper to 7 1/4" x 10 1/4"
  • Using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, score the long direction at 3/4" and 6 1/2'.
  • Flip 90 degrees and score at 2 1/4" and 6 3/4"
  • Use Paper Snips to remove four corners (see video) and create tabs.
  • Adhere.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:   Check out this previous video on creating an envelope using the same technique for a 4 x 4 card.  Gotta love the amazing tandem of the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper.

  • I created a little template for lining up the windows using the 1 1/4" Square Punch.
  • I adhered it to Whisper White card stock using Dotto Repositionable Adhesive, lined up and recropped with the 1 1/4" Square Punch.
  • The Clear Mount Version of Spooky Bingo Bits made it easy to "eyeball" and stamp through the windows.

  1. What a classy card layout! Love the “windows” – can’t wait to try this with the Jolly Bingo Bits!

  2. Super, Super Cute Card! Can’t wait to watch the video for making the envelopes!
    Now, I am really not very imaginative, maybe I could hash out something if I could sit long enough to work on it, but I would love to be able to make my own “small open-end envelopes” for the 3×6 cards! Do you have any ideas on this?????
    Thanks for sharing all that you do with us!

  3. What a SUPER card! I was wondering how you got those windows perfectly straight, thanks for the GREAT video and your card tips – very informative!

  4. What a wonderful video and your card and envelope are beautiful. I love matching envelopes or at the very least lined envelopes. I think it adds a lot of “class” to the card. Thank you for a wonderful tutorial.

  5. Thanks for this amazing video Mary and also for showing us how SIMPLY REAL you are! Love your card and matching envelope.

  6. WELL! I know what I’ll be doing with a bunch of my retired DSP that didn’t get used! Whoo Hoo! I’m so glad I waited for SU! to come out with their own scoring table …. 🙂

    Your videos are always informative and helpful! Would you be willing to do a video showing how you made your template for cutting the windows and keeping them perfectly lined up? Thanks!

  8. What an adorable window card! This is such a fabulous layout! Thanks for sharing!

  9. I would also love a tutorial on how to get the windows cut evenly. I love the card. Thanks so much for sharing.

  10. Mary, Great cards and I love the windows! I know people tell you all the time what a great demo you are, but it is so true! You are amazing! I learn so very much from you! Thank you for your envelope tutorial and for all your talent and inspiration!

    Mary, I love BOTH envelope videos! I am almost always disappointed when your short videos end, so I really liked the longer video and perfect introduction to the new scoring tool! Thanks so much!

  12. Mary, you’re brilliant!

  13. WOW! Your video was most informative. Thanks so much for doing that. Loved your card and I too would like a one minute to WOW video on how you did that card.

  14. Cute, cute! Yes..would you please do a video showing us how to do the windows? Thank you for all you do!

    Hi Mary,
    Just watched your video on how to make a standard envelope. This is a great help. Also love the Halloween card. The scoring tool is going to be a must have. I have been debating on getting the Halloween paper and I just love it. Have some from the years past but this one is so useful for other projects.

  16. Mornin’ Mary,
    Ditto on everyone’s comments about the card and envelopes. My take away is about the multi-purpose glue!! I’ve never used it before because I can’t stand messy, drippy glue – but the large applicator looks like just the thing to solve that problem! Thanks for that tip!! [ooh… just caught the pun… giggle]

  17. Thanks for your feedback on the trio of “windows”. I’ll try and whip a 1 minute to WOW video on this in the near future.

    Hugs, M

  18. Such a cute card and very versatile. I loved the video for the envelope with our new scoring tool. I absolutely must try the multi purpose glue, now that I see how great it is. Thanks, Mary.

    Hi Mary,
    I have another vote for the window alignment tutorial. Love the card and the Frightful DSP. Thought I had some but alas….guess I’ll have to place another order!!
    Hugabug, Karen

  20. Love the envelope tutorial, Mary! And the card has such a great layout for so many stamp sets I can think of! Thanks for sharing!

  21. Great ideas. Love the tutorials. Keep them coming!

  22. Mary, loved your intro to Simply Scored! I’ve been stalking your blog since September 1st waiting for it! I too would love to see a video on the card with the 3 square windows. Will definitely try it with Jolly Bingo Bits! I love your videos and would love to see MORE of them! Thanks for sharing!

  23. Mary, This is such a cute card from the speciality envelope to the stamped adorable images.

  24. The windows are wonderful – and yes do the video on them! Card is adorable – and I love the envelope!

    Wonderful video Mary! And yes we need a video on how you lined up those windows. There has to be a good way of lining them up as they are so perfect! I love the other envelope too. The card is very cute and I love the way you added the DP. Great job as usual!

  29. This is so cute! Would love a tutorial on the windows for lining them up – I always suck at that sort of thing!
