This card fits in a regular Medium Envelope which is awesome! And the top flap flips open for you to write your greeting on the inside!!! Here is how it was made:

Supplies Needed: Cardstock, 2-1/2″ Circle Punch, 1-3/4″ Circle Punch, 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, Embossing Folder, Scallop Border Punch, and Stampin’ Dimensional

Your card base is 4-1/4” x 10-7/8” (by cutting the end off a little bit your card won’t bow) and you will score at 2-1/2” and 6-3/4”. Then on the small flap end, you will use any border punch to add a little decorative edge. Then you will take your 2-1/2” Circle Punch and push it all the way in with the 2-1/2” score line centered in the punch. This creates the peek-a-boo part of your card. For your decoration part, you will use your 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. Be sure to only put adhesive on the bottom half of your layered decoration so you don’t have any sticky showing. I used the Bring On The Cake Stamp Set and Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper! You will then want to add a little decoration on the bottom portion of the card front. I created little balloons (click here to learn how to make the balloons) and attached them with Stampin’ Dimensionals, so that your flap will have something to slide under and hold closed.
