To make the envelope, cut the light blue card stock to 9 inches x 12 inches. Score at 1/2 inch and 11 1/2 inch on the shorter side. Turn the paper and score at 3 1/2 inches and 4 1/4 inch on the longer side. Fold and burnish well with a bone folder. Remove the 1/2 inch side paper from both sides of the card stock leaving the portion that is in the middle. So cut out the 1/2 inch scored portion from top and bottom flap. The tabs in the middle flap are folded inwards and stuck with the designer dried glue to form the envelope. Add Ribbon.
