NEW VIDEO TUTORIAL!  I recently had a blog reader ask me about creating an open-end envelope using Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and the new Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  I disassembled a Whisper White Stampin’ Up! Small Open-End Envelope (6 3/4″ x 3 1/2″) and determined the dimensions and scores.  Today’s Stampin’ Pretty Video Tutorial shares the simple process of turning your open-end envelopes into WOW!

Stampin up raining flowers get well card idea video tutorial envelope simply scored punch STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • I kept this get well card very simple, including the heat embossing of the floral stems in white.
  • An Embossing Buddy helps reduce static and keeps bits of embossing powder from migrating where you don’t want them.
  • The Open End Envelope will accommodate up to a 6 5/8″ x 3 3/8″ card.  Less if you have ribbon or other embellishments that require more interior room.
  • Creating your own envelopes gives you a great reason to share more pretty patterns and color.  The Stampin’ Up! Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paperis a fresh, coordinated look to receive in the mail!

  1. My husband works for the post office, and said any patterned paper would be difficult because the bar code is a light yellow. But, he said just increase your dimensions and make an outer white envelope and double enclose it. Then it will be like a present inside!

    Thanks for your help with my order this week!

  2. Love that envelope and tutorial! I didn’t realize you could actually send homemade envelopes in the mail. Thanks for the info! Your card is just as pretty as it’s envelope! Great combination!

    Great tutorial Mary! I love the tip on which end of the scoring tool to use on DSP, I have an envelope project I want to work on this weekend and I know this tip will come in handy. You inspire me to keep trying new things!

  4. I was going to ask if you actually stamped your bandaid? This is a great tutorial, thanks so much…I’d love to see how to line an envelope with patterned paper. I always manage to have it too tight.

  5. The envelope is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing, Mary.

  6. Great tutorial, thanks!

  7. Thank you soooo much for the tutorial! I just finished making it. It’s so cute in DSP. Thanks for the tip about the P.O.

  8. Thanks so much for showing all the envelope tutorials. I have waaaaaay too much DSP and this is a great way to use it up!

  9. Beautiful card in its simplicity! Finally I know what to do with that stamp set! 😉

  10. Beautiful envelope…gorgeous card! Thanks for sharing the tutorial, Mary!

  11. Here’s an important tip from a fellow stamper who works for the post office. It’s risky to use dark or brightly colored floral envelopes (like I did today) because it’s difficult for workers at the post office to see the bar codes they use. Cards can be delayed or discarded. Makes sense. I’m going to stick with lighter patterns and colors in the future! Hugs, M

  12. My bandage color is just a coincidence. It’s a slowly healing “boo boo” from my hiking trip at Mt. Zion Park. Trust me. The bandage is much more attractive at this point than the injury and I didn’t want to stop doing videos.

  13. Carol Carriveau

    I always so enjoy your videos and your tips…great idea for a fun envelope – thank you for sharing with us!

  14. Mary, this is so cool. I love your blog and love your videos. Using the scoring board makes envelopes a breeze. By the way, is it me, or do I notice than when you do a video, your band-aid color matches your card in the video? Very spiffy! 🙂

  15. I love the simple embossed outline on the card……beautiful effect!

  16. Mary, I love your card and matching envelope! I didn’t even notice that stamp in that set and now I love it! Thanks for the video…I agree with everyone else…you make it look so “doable” that I will have to give it a try. Thanks!!

  17. Mary: What a wonderful card for someone who is sick to receive. Guaranteed to make them SMILE and hopefully better (soon). Thanks for yet another amazing video tutorial – your video’s make it easy for those of us that are text challenged to “get it”. And MANY THANKS for taking one for the team – appreciate that!

  18. Simply beaautiful! The video was very easy to understand -I’m going to try a card later today 🙂

  19. tammy fletcher

    Great video, Mary. Very understandable and you make it look sooo easy.

  20. I love this – so simple but so powerful! TFS 🙂

  21. Yay! I remember writing to you that I would love to see a tutorial for the open-ended envelope and you came through! Thank You! I actually came up with a sketch for one but haven’t tried to cut it out yet! I’ll have to try yours now !
    Thanks again!

  22. Very pretty, thanks for the tutorial. Love all your work.

  23. Great video…thanks so much.
