Envelope Punch Board + All My Love Suite for a Lovely Valentines Card

Just Stamp | Stampin' Up! Forever Lovely Valentines Pocket Card


I bought the Stampin’ Up Envelope Punch Board when it was first introduced several years ago. I immediately fell for the persuasive talks and project samples. Once it arrived on my door step, it was quickly shelved in my craft room.

Perhaps I’ve blown off the dust a couple of times over the years, but I’ve never given it a genuine chance to bring me joy. All the numbers on the board intimidate me.

I finally got the inspiration I needed to start scoring, punching and rotating my way to a joyful project. I saw a pretty fancy fold card featuring the Forever Lovely and Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies at the Stampin’ Up! convention in Orlando. 

I determined to nix the fancy fold and put the Envelope Punch Board to work to create an envelope pocket card for Valentines Day. I wish I had mustered my courage sooner, because the chart is actually easy to follow. Creating the envelope is just as easy. Align. Punch. Score. Rotate. Repeat.

The Envelope Punch Board is an awesome tool! I chose to make an envelope to fit a  3.5″ x 5″ card. Conveniently, the finished envelope and insert slip into a standard medium envelope for mailing.

All My Love Suite

For Valentines Day and beyond, the All My Love Suite is perfect. The photopolymer stamp set Forever Lovely includes two-step stamps to create a floral spray that can be border cut with the coordinating dies, Lovely Flowers. Fluttering hearts and beautiful sentiments in complementary script and serif fonts complete the 13-piece stamp set.
