Exploding Wedding Card and Envelope

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with an Exploding Wedding Card and coordinating  Envelope, perfect for giving to a special bride and groom.


Cardstock:  Bazzill
Pattern paper:  K&Company, Momenta
Scoring Tool:  Scor-Pal
Adhesive:  Scor-Tape
Ribbon:  May Arts

Step 1 -
Cut cardstock as follows:
2 pieces - 6" x 12" (for tri shutters)
2 pieces - 6" x 6" (for front flaps)
1 piece - 6" x 8" (for base)

Step 2 - tri shutters
Make 2 tri shutters with the 6" x 12" cardstock
Align the longer side with the top edge of the Scor-Pal
Score each piece at 2", 4", 8", 10"

Step 3 -
Using a trimmer, cut both tri shutter pieces as follows:
Starting 1 3/4" from each side, cut down from the first scored line (2") to the last scored line (10")

Step 4 -
Create mountain and valley folds on each tri shutter

Step 5 - Base
Using the 6" x 8" cardstock, place shorter side at the top edge
Lightly score at 3"
Rotate cardstock and lightly score at 4"

Step 6 -
Following the scored lines, place Scor-Tape along the 3" mark
Center ribbon on the Scor-Tape

Step 7 -
Place Scor-Tape on the tri shutter panels that will be adhered to the base
Align both tri shutters to the 4" scored line on the base
They meet in the center and help hold the ribbon in place

Step 8 - Front Panels
Score the 2  6" x 6" panels at 2"
Place Scor-Tape on the 2" flap and adhere to the front panels to form 1 unit
This is the assembled card.

Now it's time to decorate
Cut papers to fit each flap of the card
Embellish as desired

A fussy cut flower added some depth to the front of the card
Use the ribbon to tie the card closed

To create the envelope, use double sided pattern paper
Plus the Scor-Envi on the Scor-Pal
Place the paper on the diagonal and score at 3" and 9"
Rotate the panel and score at 1 1/2" and 10 1/2"
Cut in to create triangles where the score marks overlap
This will make it easier to fold the envelope

Place score tape along the edges of two flaps and fold the bottom panel up to create the envelope

Place the card inside
Perfect fit every time!

Thanks for stopping by today.
