I came up with a cute little Easter card
This is what the card looks like closed (notice I even lined my envelope to match).
And this is the card open; it folds into a cute little box.

And a close up of the little punch art pieces
I used the basic templete/instructions found here, but adjusted the measurements to create a standard 4.25 x 5.5 inch card when closed. I only needed an 8.5 x 11 inch piece of cardstock to do this.
Trim your cardstock to 9" x 5.5", then score (black lines) and cut (red lines) as per image below.
I cut the decorative strip for the layers from the leftover cardstock (adjusting the length between scores to fit my smaller sized card).
