I hope you like what I came up with. It's versatile and can be used for other types of events.
I choice sayings from the following stamp sets, Thoughts & Prayers, Teeny Tiny Wishes and You've Got This.
Using the Decorative Label Punch: 2 Melon Mambo and one in Mossy Meadow
Stamp Praying for You onto Whisper White, punch with Label Bracket Punch
Washi Label Punch: 1 Night of Navy
Stamp With Sympathy onto Whisper White, punch with Word Window Punch
Stamp Sharing in your Sorrow onto Whisper White, punch with Washi Label Punch and trim the ends off to make is straight.
Cut Hello Honey to 2 1/2 x 1
Stamp I'm here for you onto Whisper White and cut to 2 3/8 x 7/8
I used a full-size Wood Mount Case from Stampin Up. This was perfect. I didn't have to fuss with coming up with a disposable bag or box, that probably would be tossed away after being used. The case was just the right size in depth. You can fit a lot and still close it with no problem.
I stuck with the English Garden DSP and cut a piece to 7 1/8 x 11 1/4. I then slid it into the cover. I probably could have cut the length a smidge longer, but I wasn't going to fuss too much. When you close the case, it will create the score lines to the DSP on the spine. Perfect no measuring on the that!!
I used the You've got this stamp set. I stamped the bottom layer in Blushing Bride, the flower in Melon Mambo and the verse in Mossy Meadow. I added some Gold Wink of Stella to the center of the flower. It's hard to see in the picture, but I wrapped the DSP using Blushing Bride seam binding ribbon,and added a doily, cut in half. Just to add a little more embellishment.
Whisper White measures: 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 and Melon Mambo measures: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
Once it was dry I slid it back into the case.
I chose 3x3 1/2 as my card size to have a little extra room. It shows I need a sheet of paper that measure 5 3/4x 5 3/4. I used Melon Mambo. The first score line is at 2 5/8. So punch then score, turn the paper and line the score line up with the guide. Punch and score again, repeat until each side is done.
I needed to make the envelope slightly wider, or deeper to fit the 4 notecards and notecard envelopes. so I went around and scored about 1/4 wider punch did not punch. So line the paper up again with the wider tab at 3 3/8 and score (see 3rd picture) do not punch, turn and score at the smaller tab at 2 7/8. Turn and score at 3 3/8 and turn and score at 2 7/8. So the 3 3/8 scoring should opposite each other as well as the 2 7/8.
Fold and burnish the score lines. Oh and if you want the corners rounded. Insert into the reverse punch on the punchboard. See 6th picture.
