After I made the easel card, I discovered that I had no envelope that was the correct size for the card. It was raining outside and cold and I did not want to make a trip to the store - so I decided to make one. It was relatively easy and the process did not take a lot of time and now I have a template to use for this size card. Plus, having an envelope made out of the patterned DP looks very nice! I later used this process to make another envelope size template starting with a standard Three 1/2" x Six 3/4" mailing envelope and it worked out great!
Here is how I made my template for the easel card envelope. Hope it helps you when you need an envelope on a cold and rainy day and do not want to go out to the store! :<}
To begin, I used a SU Four 1/2" x Five 3/4" card envelope and cut One 1/4" off one end.
