Decorative Envelope and Card Edges Video Tutorial

Today’s project was made backwards…meaning, I made the video and then decided to create a little project with the results. :)

The bottom edge of the card was cut and embossed. Because of a tape mishap, I thought, wouldn’t it be cute to cover up my boo boo with another matching border? :) I love happy accidents.

The other topic covered in the video is how to make a decorative edge on your envelope flap. Its a fantastic finishing touch. Imagine a bridal shower invite or a super elegant wedding invitation envelope!

You're brilliant! I never would have been able to figure all that out! Thanks for this video :)

Me again! Hi! :) I just tried playing a little bit and I'm confused... If I'm using patterned paper, I put the die itself against the WRONG side? So the cutting edge is going up into the right side? I was actually using a PTI die, but they're pretty much the same and I ended up with the wrong side of the pattern looking better than the side I wanted. Maybe I'm just thinking too much? ;)
