Pencil Card

The kids are back in school and the pencils are getting sharpened, so why not make a pencil card to celebrate a job well done.  This is a quick card to make and with Stampin' Up! colors and tools, it's really cute.  Don't forget to make a coordinating envelope with our DSP and Envelope Punch Board to complete the card.


The pencil tip was cut diagonally at the 2” mark. I used the Envelope Punch Board (EPB) and punched the Hello Honey card stock at the 1”, 2” and 3” marks. Then, using the Simply Scoring Tool, score starting at the “valley” of the EPB punches and continuing to the left side of the card stock. Adhere the Strawberry Slush card stock to the Hello Honey card stock. Add the sentiment, ribbon and attach to the card base. The last step is to add the pencil lead. I glued the oval horizontally on the tip and trimmed accordingly.

Since the card is 4” x 8”, I made a matching envelope. Using the EPB, look up the size and cut the DSP as stated. Follow the directions as stated on the board and you will have a beautiful, custom made envelope.
