DIY Envelope Book Handmade Card

 I am THAT type of woman - one who willll write little words of love, encouragement and pop them a gift card in to cheer someone up.  I also love supporting a local business by buying the gift cards from them. Here is an ideal and easy handmade gift of an Envelope Book or 'extra' handmade card.  This pop up/open wow handcrafted gift is easy and FUN to create!  Using the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (grab the upcoming Birthday Class - see more when you join my email list!) and Art Gallery Bundle to create this dynamic Envelope Book (perfect for Birthdays, Graduation, Baby Showers, Weddings, Just-Because!)

I hope that you enjoyed this Video

Create this combination that is EVEN MORE Beautiful by combining the stunning Peony Garden Designer Series Paper and the Art Gallery Bundle!
~  Using the Paper Trimmer to trim the flap off of 4-6 (or more!) of our envelopes.
~  Adhere the bottom seam and a middle line with Stampin' Seal + and layer for a stack to fill in the envelopes (I like to create two extra as the ones closest to the binding are harder to use).
~  Cutting Chip Board (from my Gold Foil Sheets or any other specialty paper) to 6"x4-1/2" to create two pannels.
~  Using the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper for the exterior of the book to 7"x10-1/2".
~  Adhere the chipboard to the inside (this can be the hardest thing - figuring out the pattern you like least lol) with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
~  Trim off the corners (see the video on the binding size and why I do this).
~  Using Stampin' Seal + to wrap and cover the book edges.
~  Using Stampin' Seal + to adhere the envelopes to the inside of this book.
~  Cutting Petal Pink card stock to 4-1/4"x5-1/2" and the Peony Garden to 3-1/4"x4-1/2" adhere together.
~  Die-Cut a 3-1/2" square piece of the Peony Garden with the Just Want to Say greeting from the Art Gallery Bundle.
~  Die Cut the longer tab for greetings and stamp the Art Gallery greetings in Basic Grey ink (this covers most of your needs in perfectly worded greetings!).
~  Adhere this together with a 3" square of Basic White behind the die-cut greeting using Mini Dimensional Adhesive and the Multi Purpose Liquid Adhesive to the inner bubbles of the words.
~  Using my Take Your Pick tool to adhere these STUNNING Elegant Faceted Gems to the front of the book and the greetings.
You can really add a ton of envelopes to this - expanding the binding area should you need it.

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
