You can pitch the cards and use the envelopes.
You can even get some milage out of the cards (as I do with the store-bought ones I get from others) and fold them into beautiful little gift boxes. A pencil, ruler and scissors are all you need. A scorer might be helpful, but I've never used one. I'd attach a picture and step-by-step if I only knew how.
