Card in An Envelope

In just over a week, Grandpa and I are hoping to see our grandchildren who live in northern Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati, Ohio. I wanted to give each a card with a small cash gift inside. I decided that the ideal card would be one of the cards that is made inside an envelope. Mine turned out to be 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square. I used double sided designer paper. The belly bands were made from a small strip cut from the leftover paper and turned to the opposite side. The challenge for me was how to decorate the inside of the cards and what accent piece to add to the belly band. I only got pictures of the insides of two cards. This was a fun project but I thought I was never going to get finished. My creativity was not working very fast.
