Spellbinders Autumn Wonder Envelope Pocket Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  It’s Make & Take Tuesday, and I’m here to share this Spellbinders Autumn Wonder Envelope Pocket Card Tutorial with you.   It’s bursting with fall colors, die cut images, florals and all the things we love the most about fall.

Spellbinders recently released their Envelope of Wonder dies, and I could not resist purchasing the Autumn Wonder set.  All the pretty fall leaves, pumpkins, mushrooms, foliage, acorns and squash just called my name.  I’ve been waiting for a free moment to play with this set, and today is it!

Instead of using the Envelope of Wonder Die to create my envelope pocket, I pulled out my trusty envelope punch board.  Part of today’s tutorial will show you how to create a 5″ x 4″ envelope pocket and then line it.  If you have the die, you can skip that part of the tutorial.  But if you’ve always wanted to know how to create and line a custom envelope, I think you’ll enjoy the process.

Fall Fun

My envelope and my card are made with Carta Bella Fall Fun patterned papers.  The envelope pocket sits on a 6×6 kraft card base that I’ve dressed up with patterns and solids from the collection. One of the things that drew me to the Autumn Wonder die set was the fact that I could cut the shapes from scraps.  And you all know how I feel about using up my scraps.

A Peek Inside

The inside of the card features a flap page and a pocket.

You’ll learn how to make this clever pocket and hidden journaling card in the video tutorial, too.

Of course, there has to be a little tea wallet to go with the honey stick that is in the envelope pocket.

And of course the tea has to be Pumpkin Spice.  Anything else would be wrong!

Not So Scary Scarecrow

Not So Scary Scarecrow for the Really Reasonable Ribbon September 2023 Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  This Not So Scary Scarecrow is my inspiration piece for the Really Reasonable Ribbon September 2023 Blog Hop.  Welcome to the hop! You should be coming here from Ginny’s gorgeous blog.  Our theme for the month is Halloween, and that’s what inspired me to pull out some beautiful ribbons, trims and mulberry flowers from my RRR Stash. .

TIP:  Add a textured border to your card design with layered ribbon!  Use 1/2″ Scor-Tape to secure Autumn Orange Shimmer Satin to your card.  Then top it with 1/4″ Scor-Tape and Autumn Bold Vertical Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon.  This combination “ties” all these fall colors together, plus it adds great texture to your card design.

Autumn Trims and Flowers

Top your Autumn Orange Shimmer Satin Bow with some Halloween Baker’s Twine. Don’t forget to tie some tiny Baker’s Twine Bows to tuck into the Mixed Earth Tone Chrysanthemum and Sweetheart Blossom floral cluster below your sweet scarecrow for the win.

A Peek Inside

Here’s a peek at the inside of the card.  Of course, I added a pocket with a cute pumpkin tea/gift wallet tucked inside.

And you just have to have at least once cup of Pumpkin Spice something or other to make it really, truly feel like fall!

On With the Hop!

Now hop on over and see what sweetness Cheryl has prepared for you. If  you get lost along the way, you can find the complete hop list on the RRR Blog.  You’ll want to be sure to finish up there and answer Bonnie’s Question of the Month so that your name can be added to the drawing for a $10 RRR Gift Certificate and the FREE Digital Stamp Set of your choice.

Enjoy the hop, my friends!
