DT Lili of the Valley Challenge #85 & Square Envelope Card "Template"

Hi again folks :)

Lili of the Valley is having their Challenge #85 up and ready for you today, and this time we want you to play with YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO!!
We have our first GDT this week too, so check out her georgeous creation, along with the Dt's beautiful samples this week!

You may think that I've made a purple and turqouise card today, since I've made a LOT of those lately, but...GOT YAH!
I've made a BROWN and TURQOUISE card insted :)
Turqouise seems to be my favourite colour of all times, and almost any combo with that colour
works for me :)
I've played with my new georgeous Pion Design papers, and finally got to try out colouring on Kraft cardstock. I've made another Square Envelope Card, and if you stay with me till the end of this post, I'll tell you how to make those fun and decorative folding cards ;)
Hope you enjoy!







Size: 6" x 6"
Folding: Envelope Card
Ink: Adirondack - Espresso, Distress Ink - Broken China & Walnut Stain to ink the edges.
Stamps: Lili of the Valley - "Pom Pom" & General Greetings.
Colouring: Prismacolor Premier Colour Pencils & Sansodor on Kraft cardstock.
Papers: Pion Design - Sagaen om Våren "Fjäril" & "Vårdikt", Bazzill - kraft & turqouise cardstock.
Tools: Spellbinders - Nesting Eyelet Circles & Classic Circles, Martha Stewart - Flourish & Cherish Hearts edge punches, EK Success - petite scalloped edge punch.

I'm entering this card in to these challenges:
♥♥♥

Since I've had a few questions about how I make these Square Envelope Cards, and what measurements I use, I decided to share it with you today ;)


Start out by cutting a square of cardstock in size 9 1/4" x 9 1/4".
Score diagonally as showed on the picture, at 3 1/4" in every corner, so you'll have 4 equal flaps to fold.
Cut off the little triangles where the flaps cross (on the middle of each side of the square), so you can fold the card nice and flat. I keep the card closed with magnets, but you may use ribbon too.
Hope this made sense to you :)
If you make any Square Envelope Cards using my recipe, I'll be very happy if you let others know about it, and I would love for you to show me your beautiful samples too :)

Wishing you a happy day!
Hugs, Lena Katrine
