More Envelope Punch Board Ideas
We always want more ideas for the tools that we use in paper crafting, so today, I have more Envelope Punch Board ideas and will show you how to use the punch board to make File Folder cards.
Watch the the video so that you can see the cuts that you make to create the file folder cards.
File Folder Card 1
The first card uses the O Holy Night stamp set, inked with the Encore Silver ink. The Encore Silver ink is a pigment ink that allows you to get the appearance of silver embossing without the using the silver embossing powder and the heat gun.
The File Folder cuts are demonstrated on the video above with the measurements for cutting the front of the card to get 2 distinct jut out to really resemble the file folder.

Accessories: Big Shot, Modern Mosaic Emboss Folder, Envelope Punch Board, Mosaic Punch, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Versa Mark, White Embossing Powder, Iridescent Embossing Powder, Rhinestone Jewel, Island Indigo Bakers Twine
For this File Folder card, only one side of the front has the file folder look, all corners are rounded using the back side of the Envelope Board Punch.
To achieve the sparkly effect on the background, the Modern Mosaic embossing folder was inked with Versamark ink using a brayer. The Smokey Slate card stock was placed in the embossing folder and run through the Big Shot. Take the paper our carefully so as not to smudge the Versamark ink and cover with embossing powder. I used a mixture of White Emboss Powder and Iridescent Emboss Powder using equal measurements.
To achieve the Christmas decoration look, the Modern Mosaic image was stamped 6 times using Island Indigo ink and 3 times using the Coastal Cabana ink. Each image was punched out with the Mosaic Punch. Take 2 of the punched mosaics, fold in half, and glue 2 of the sides together. Finally insert the Island Indigo Bakers Twine down the middle where the 2 mosaics are attached and glue the 3rd one to the back. This one is flat and you will attach it to your card. Doing this technique to the card, makes the Christmas decorations appear to be 3-D.
