What to do with FREE cardstock?

So..... xpedx is my favorite place to purchase envelopes and when I'm there I always check out the "free" bin at the back of the store. Usually, I find something that can be be made into a card, tag, etc. And I knew that I should've picked up those mini gum ball machines with the xpedx logo and turned them into a cute Valentine gift!
Anyway, I got a good amount of lovely, textured cream card stock, which was already cut into 3 X 8 1/2 strips. When folded, it made a nice little card, but I wanted this to fit into an 4-bar envelope a bit better, so cut some 3 1/2 X 4 3/4 pieces of Smokey Shadow as a base. Now it fits perfectly into the envelope and makes for a nice little gift-y card set for my neighbor!
