Vertical Banded Male Card

I like a variety of styles/sizes for cards, so decided I'd use an extra envelope from a card/envelope set I'd received. The original Making Memories card/envelope set included a white insert which fit through a green card with a double slit near the top third. I decided to instead use a brown card with an eyelet-attached band to match my round tab punch pullout at the top. I thought this would make a nice "guy card", but was then stymied as to how to finish it. Finally, I decided this stamp from Stampin'Up's Carte Postale set added the right touch and it could still work for either a man or woman. The finished card size is 3 7/8" x 9 1/4" and fits a No. 10 envelope. This particular envelope closes on the end rather than the side.
