“Hi Pebbles friends! Today I have created a little step-by-step photo process showing you how to make a set of three cards with coordinating envelopes in less than 15 minutes using products from Pebbles Basics collection.” – Wendy Sue Anderson, Pebbles Design Team Member
First, gather your supplies – here’s what I used:
Pebbles makes these great cardmaking pads – have you seen them? There are 36 pre-cut, pre-scored cards in this pad! Simply tear out the cards on the perforations – I chose these three:
Since the cards are pre-scored, there’s no guessing where to fold the cards. Perfect – every time!
Now check out these great accent & phrase sticker sheets – there are 22 sentiments in each color for a total of 44 sentiments on each sheet – whatever theme you’re needing a card for, you’ll find a fitting sentiment on these sheets.
I chose the “happy birthday” banners for my cards.
Next, it’s time to add a little embellishment to each card.
I added coordinating flowers to two of my cards and a matching clothespin to the third.
And that’s it for the cards – yes, they are simple, but they are very cute!
Now let’s work on the envelopes. I used three standard white envelopes … nothing fancy. I wanted to mark a special spot to write the recipient’s name on the front of the envelope. I used two strips of washi tape on the edge – this makes a perfect spot to write the name and it mimics the design of the card too.
I wanted to make the envelopes even more special and fun, so I decided to make liners for the inside – they are easier than you might think! Simply open the envelope flap and place it over the patterned paper (be sure the paper will go below the opening after it’s inserted into the envelope, but there’s no need for it to go all the way to the bottom unless you want it to). Trace lightly.
Cut out the shape you traced.
Tuck the piece into the envelope, score it along the envelope fold, and adhere to the inside of the envelope.
Repeat this process for all three envelopes. That’s it – you are finished! Three handmade cards with coordinating envelopes in less than 15 minutes! Since you already have all of the supplies out, you might as well make even more to add to your stash. Creating these quick and easy card sets makes it easy to have a handmade card ready to share with your friends and family. Creating several all at the same time will not only save you time, but just think of all the money you’ll save when you don’t have to rush out and buy a card at the last minute!
