Be Inspired Wednesday #74

Good morning!!! 
Today, over at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog, we are focusing on envelopes.
  I made this envelope to match the card I made last week.  
I don't know about you but I have trouble sometimes finding envelopes for my square cards.  
Most of my cards measure 4 3/4 x 4 3/4.  For my envelope today, 
I cut a piece of K and Co designer paper into a 7 1/2 square.  
Place your paper, diamond style, onto your scoring tool and then, 
score each corner 3 3/4 inches toward the center of the paper.  
After scoring all four corners, you can just fold three of the corners in 
and glue them to form your envelope! 
The last corner can be punched at the tip with a corner rounder. 
Hope I have made sense with my instructions!  I don't have photos to share, unfortunately.  
Keep in mind these measurements fit my favorite card size card
so you may have to adjust the measurements for yours. 
  I added an embossed layer with a layer of Mellow Moss with pretty corners,
tiny die cut flowers and a spellbinders label to write the recipients name.  
Since my envelope is heavily embellished, this will be given in person rather than mailing,
but you can just use a piece of printer paper to have a regular white mailing envelope.

Here is a photo of how it looks from the back. 

And here is a photo with the card.


Here are the supplies I used for this envelope and seal:

K and Co designer paper
Scoring tool
Mellow Moss and Vanilla cardstock
Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder
Cuttlebug Vintage corners
Cuttlebug Floral Borders
Spellbinders Labels Four
Seam binding
Tim Holtz distress ink Vintage Photo
Brown pearls

I hope this has inspired you to make your own envelopes!
