Envelope Cards - A small "tutorial"

I thought I'd show you how to make some easy-made, but very fun and decorative Envelope Cards today, like the ones I'll show you here:

Start out by cutting a square of cardstock in size 91/4" x 91/4".

Score diagonally as showed on the picture, at 31/4" in every corner, so you'll have 4 equal flaps to fold.

Cut off the little triangles where the flaps cross (on the middle of each side of the square), so you can fold the card nice and flat.
Hope this made sense to you :)

If you make any Envelope Cards using my description along with any stamps from Lili of the Valley, we'll be very happy to show them here at the LOTV Ideas to Inspire blog - just pop us an e-mail with pictures of your creations :)
Happy Crafting!
