Last time I was here, I showed how to make a card using the actual envelope die. Today I am still using the same die to create cards, but slightly different this time.

For this project you will need:

Sizzix Big Shot Plus Machine Only - 660020 (for the envelope you need the larger 9" width of the Plus)
Sizzix Thinlits Plus Die Set 13PK - Envelope, Square - 660846

Card, Stamp, tag and adhesives

I took a prescored card that was 5 x 5 inches square when folded in half.
I placed the square die in place and secure it with low tack tape.

Because the die is almost exactly 5" you can use your standard Sizzix Big Shot to die cut this die, but for the envelope die you will need the Big Shot Plus.

Because of the amount of detail, before lifting the die I always turn it around to make sure that I have cut it through. Usually with 2 passes it is perfectly cut, but it will depend on the card.

Gently I removed all the excess bits. Because they are rather large, I didn't use the die brush.

I cut a square piece of hot pink card and attached it to the back.

Finally, I stamped the message in a white tag and added a brad trough.

I used my Big shot plus to die cut a matching square envelope.

And this is another version which I think would be nice for a wedding, two halves!

I hope you like it and try to use your dies to be creative!
