Daily Special - Anything But Cards - Envelope Accordion Album/Card Tutorial

Click Here for the Tutorial

Check out my Card Inspired Blog Site for the "scrapbook album" version of this project. The project posted here is the "card" version. It's basically the same thing but the layout for the one posted on Card Inspired is a scrapbook layout.

I'm sorry the pictures came out a bit blurry and dark. . .I just didn't have enough sunlight shining through the window. Today was a bit overcast. I don't use flash when taking pictures of my cards and projects because it distorts the color of the actual card. Red looks pink, purple looks blue, etc. . .

Creating the tutorial burnt me out! I could not get the template included in the tutorial to size correctly. Whenever I tested the printed version, it would either be too small or too big. My scan can't seem to transfer the image to the actual size. I spent half of the time adjusting the size. IT WAS DRIVING ME MAD! Anyway, I finally got it to the right size.

When printing the template on the tutorial, the face of the envelope pattern (meaning, not including the top and side flaps) should be approximately 3 7/8" x 5 1/2". You may want to reduce the top and bottom margin of your printer to zero. Because of the size of the pattern, it may print on two pages. . .you will need to cut and attach the end piece to the first page. The pattern in whole should fit on to an 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock.

Anyway, this project was duper fun to create! I really liked how it came out and I usually am critical of the stuff I create but I'm actually happy with this one. Try it out! Honestl, it's super easy! I promise.






















Until later. . .
