Hi
Once again, I forgot to document where I got the file to do this cut out.  Sorry.  This card has been a piece by piece card.  The pink background was a card, but when I cut it on the Cricut the fold line actually cut.  In order to salvage it I folded a piece of paper in the middle and punched around the edges.  Then I used  silver strips as a hinge.   I adhered the pink card to red cardstock.   This one really needs a sentiment at the top to fill in the space and I will think of one later when I need to use the card.   Lined the envelope.  By the way, the envelopes are some that were left over from a card store that went out of business.  What I do is cut each side off to fit the card and use score tap to close them up.  Works fine and I have several colors.  While I had this one open I just cut a liner for it and glued it in.  Then used the score tape to finish up the sides.
Have a Blessed day.

What a beautiful card, it doesn't need the space filling up at all :o)

Great save!
I think it's just fine without a sentiment, and it would work for lots of occasions!
Whodda thunk cutting the envelopes down!?

I like the way you saved the card Myrna, it is really pretty done that way. Great idea for the envelope too!

What a stunning, stunning card. How perfect to add a sentiment when you have an actual occasion. So many times I add sentiments and never use my cards because they are the wrong sentiment.

Great save! Love the color combination. Love the idea also about cutting down the envelopes. I will have to keep that in mind.
