My envelope project is also a way for me to use up the stationery and cards, etc. that I've been collecting for years! After designing the envelope of one of my earlier cards, I started to write a message to my Mom on the inside of the card. I was totally surprised to find its sentiment to be "Happy Holidays"!! I spoke with my Mom tonight and she was impressed with her first Christmas card of the season. Usually, I'm late, but this year I managed to get my first card out 2.5 months early. Yay me!
