This is for the Ways to use Challenge on Splitcoaststampers today. I folded an envelope in half, used the front of the envelope to stamp, the back of the envelope is the inside of the card. Cut the flap on the fold and stick down the left side. Use the other side to slip in a gift card. I punched a doulble slot on the side to run the ribbon through so it would hold shut. Use this idea to make a special way to present your gift to its receipient. Hope I spelled that correctly!! Hope you are enjoying December and taking time to make some of those great handmade gifts and card that are one of a kind, because they are made from the heart by your own wonderful hands!!

Liz,
This is a really beautiful card, and the colors you chose make the card a very beautiful Christmas card!! Would it be possible for you to clarify your directions a little bit? Do you start the envelope, completely open? I would like to try this card technique.
THANKS!!

Sounds like a fun technique - I'd love to see the inside of the card too so I can fully grasp it!

The front is gorgeous - those soft blue leaves frame this wonderful image beautifully!!
hugs, Jami
