Spellbinders | Envelope of Wonder

Hello there, I fell in love with this Envelope of Wonder release from Spellbinders as soon as I saw it! The opportunities with this set are fabulous - use with the envelope or without and there are a few ways to make them into a cards too - make the whole envelope a card, add a card on to the back of the envelope or add the envelope onto a card base! You can also just use the envelope as an actual envelope too!

I went down the route of making a smaller rectangular shape card and adding it to the back of the envelope. Since you die cut the pieces for the envelope separately, you need to score the pieces and adhere them to the back piece. I opted to adhere them to the inside, rather than the outside, so that they did not show on the back. 

The first card uses the Spellbinders Envelope of Wonder Etched Dies. I created the envelope from white cardstock as above and then die cut all the flowers and leaves from Spellbinders Cardstock and Hero Arts Ultra Pink Cardstock. The flowers were assembled and adhered together using Bearly Art Glue

I first added the leaves and flowers to the back of the two sides and then arranged the ones at the front on top. The flowers were adhered with thin foam tape and the leaves with Bearly Art Glue. I wanted to keep a lot of the envelope showing, so I focussed on the two sides, rather than the middle. 

I took the sentiment from the Spellbinders Sentiments of Wonder Betterpress Plate & Die Set and pressed onto Spellbinders Porcelain Betterpress Card with Spellbinders Betterpress Black Ink and the Spellbinders Betterpress Letterpress System. It was cut out using the die in the Spellbinders Envelope of Wonder Etched Dies Set. I added twine through the tag shape and adhered it to the card with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Spellbinders Silver Mix Color Essentials Gems

For my next card, I used the envelope from the Spellbinders Envelope of Wonder Etched Dies but decorated it with the Spellbinders Christmas Envelope of Wonder Etched Dies. I die cut the elements from Spellbinders Cardstock, Hero Arts Peony Cardstock and PTI Kraft Cardstock. 

The pieces were assembled and adhered using Bearly Art Glue. I then arranged them inside the envelope, adhering with a combination of Bearly Art Glue and thin foam tape. This time, I added more elements overlapping the bottom of the inside of the envelope to look like they are bursting out!

The sentiment from the Spellbinders Sentiments of Wonder Betterpress Plate & Die Set was pressed like the sentiment above, but this time, I die cut it out using the coordinating dies. I also die cut the die another two times from white cardstock and stacked them up for dimension. To finish off, I embellished with Spellbinders Pink Color Essentials Gems

I was kindly sent these sets from Spellbinders to use, but I have purchased the autumn set myself as I love that one too! There is also a Halloween set as well. Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Amazing cards and even nicer that I got one of them for Christmas! I love how you have filled each of the envelopes. They are both so so pretty! I especially love how you mixed light pink in with the Christmas colours - I must try that. But both are gorgeous and I really must use the envelope with the flowers dies as I haven't yet! Beautiful and inspiring as always xx
