Hello my friends!! Thanks so much for stopping by! Today I have an envelope tutorial that is all about Mini Slimline Cards and Envelopes. I was in need of a certain size envelope for one of my Mini Slimline Cards and did not realize that there are several different Mini Slimline Card Base sizes out there being made. So I created this video to give you some envelope options. Below are all the measurements for the card bases and the envelope to match. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for watching, liking, commenting and subscribing.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a fantastic day and I’ll catch you in the next video!

Mini Slimline Card Base Sizes and Envelopes

Card Base Size: 5 3/4 x 6 1/2 score at 3 1/4

Envelope Measurements

1. Cut 1 piece 8” L x 3 1/2” W

– score at 1 1/8” and 7 1/4”

2. Cut 2 pieces 6” x 2 1/8” Flip one panel over to the wrong side and line it up with the other (refer to video if this doesn’t makes sense) and score at 1/4” Then with your panels together take a ruler and mark a small angle at the top and cut. Again refer to the video if you have questions it will make more sense.

⁃ Finally burnish your your scored lines and start to assemble. Before taping your bottom flap be sure and use your corner rounder ( I used a 1”) to round the corners of the flaps on both the top and the bottom.

⁃ I recommend 1/8” double sided tape. Anything else is to big.

Card Base Size: (Pinkfresh Studio Size) 6 1/4 x 6 1/2 score at 3 1/4

Envelope Measurements

1. Cut paper 8” L x 3 1/2 “ W –

⁃ Score at 1 1/8 “ and 7 5/8”

2. Cut two pieces 6 1/2 “ L x 2 1/8” W

⁃ Flip one panel over to the wrong side and line it up with the other (refer to video if this doesn’t makes sense) and score at 1/4” Then with your panels together take a ruler and mark a small angle at the top and cut. Again refer to the video if you have questions it will make more sense.

⁃ Finally burnish your your scored lines and start to assemble. Before taping your bottom flap be sure and use your corner rounder ( I used a 1”) to round the corners of the flaps on both the top and the bottom. Make a small trim at the bottom of each flap. This will make the bottom flap fold up easier.

3. Assemble with 1/8” double sided tape.
