Gusset Envie for A2 cards

While I do have the Crafters Companion Enveloper and love it I thought it would be nice if there were a gusset envie on one of the carts. I looked and looked for a GUSSET A2 ENVELOPE on DS an couldn't find one so I made one! This requires Plantin Schoolbook and the Expressions to cut. Due to the size it can't be cut on the baby bug *okie sighs as she feels her baby bug is getting neglected*. There are two different envies on the file. One is for a plain edge flap and the other is for a scallop edge flap. The mats are labeled.

An A2 card is the 5.5 x 4.25 size card, or one sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock cut in half then folded in half.

As you can see here a pop dotted card fits nicely inside this envie.

if you have problems reading the directions you can click the pictures and make them bigger.
