Default inside of commercial envelopes

Has anyone made a card using the inside of envelopes? like the ones that are black stripe or blue inside?

Here is one card that I found in the gallery that used the inside of a junk mail envelope. I went to the main gallery and put in the words "junk mail" in the search window. About 82 cards popped up using various junk mail papers and items.

Great information! I have saved a lot of these envelopes. I never thought about doing a search. My intention was to use them for the folded paper in iris fold cards, but I have too many other ideas and never get around to that.

I just saw an example (on Carol Duvall Show today???) using some of this paper as a small background for stamps. But I like some of the ideas here better.

i had a lot of fun doing a series of cards using the insides of envelopes. i loved the whole 'recycling' feel of it. here are 3 i posted in my gallery.
