I was intrigued when I saw the Iron Gate texture fade by Sizzix. I am always looking for additional ways to increase the usage of a product. And cutting apart an embossing folder is one of those ways. With some tape you can easily create a new hinge wherever you want it.
(There's a piece of paper tape holding the edges together in this photo.)

The card is 3-D so not suitable for a regular envelope. Thankfully I've saved a lot of Sizzix packaging and it works perfectly. A bit of decorating and you have another gift!
