How to Make a Split Card and Matching Envelope

Creating a matching envelope is an easy way to fancify a beautiful card. I show the steps here how to make a Split Card and a matching envelope using only a 6” x 6” piece of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.

This is the TENTH and final installment in my “Create With DSP” series! It’s been fun with lots of different types of Designer Series Papers. For lots of tips and recipes to showcase your favorites (or a good way to clean up your stash!), click here to start at the beginning!

While this designer series paper arrives 12” x 12”, I have a DSP share every year, which means 4 people split each of the new paper packs. For this pack and many of the others, each participant received 2 pieces of 6” x 6” of EACH pattern — There are a lot of different styles of cards you can make with only a 6” x 6” piece of DSP!!

Picture Frame Design:

When you think the paper you are using needs to be framed and hung on a wall, you make a card with mini picture frames (and of course a matching envelope):

Windowpane Card:

And who could resist a Windowpane Card design like the one below? Starting with a 6” x 6” piece, you have enough leftover to make a matching envelope! If you want a tutorial for this style, click here.

Split Card Design:

See below for how to create a Fine Art Floral Split card and a matching envelope from a single 6” x 6” piece of DSP:


How to make this Split Card and a matching envelope:

Cut your cardstock:

  • So Saffron cardbase: 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, folded at 4 1/4”
  • Pool Party: 4” x 5 1/4”
  • DSP
    • 3 5/8” x 4 7/8” (for the card)
    • 6” x 2 3/8” (for the envelope)

TIP: When cutting your 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 3 5/8” first, and then reserve the remainder for your envelope.

Create Your Card:

  • Cut your DSP diagonally using a trimmer and holding it down firmly.
  • Glue one DSP triangle down against the corner of your Pool Party card stock.
  • Next, stamp a sentiment using Night of Navy ink along the edge of the DSP.
  • Now, you can glue down the other DSP triangle against the opposite corner.
  • Adhere this to your cardbase.

Lastly, Make your Envelope Match:

  • Apply glue to the flap of your envelope.
  • With the 2 3/8” strip of DSP, place it over the flap leaving a tiny white strip at the top by the seam.
  • Trim away the excess, and enjoy sending your matching card!

TIP: With the Stampin’ Up envelopes, you only need 2 1/4” x 6” of DSP to cover the flap.
