This card is a 6" square card and I used loads of things just laying around in my drawers that I just had to have and haven't used!:) I use the folded envelope for gift cards and money very often and it was an idea I learned from one of my SU demo friends here. LOVE IT! The school colors are burgundy and gold which fit nicely with the background paper I have from Hot Off the Press. I even found an Adirondack pen (current) to match! Thanks Amy for your wonderful blog and this idea. I'm sorry I don't know her SCS handle and I'm afraid to back up or I'll lose all of this. The pictures are the front, inside and the opened gift card envelope.
I also can't make cards without my Itty Bitty Background stamp. I had to look more than once on the SU site to make sure that this set wasn't discontinued. Also one of the things I have been doing from almost the beginning of my stamping is edging with a sponge and coordinating ink. Learned this at my second SU party 9 years ago.
