The envelopes have areas to color and decorate as well and the inside of the envelope is done is a all-over holiday theme design. The designs of the cards are really cute with all sorts of Christmas theme items, including Santa, deer, birds, bears, Christmas trees, and some adorable penguins. This is my first set of note cards by this company but it certainly will not be the last one.
The cards are printed on a medium weight card stock while the envelopes are printed on a heavy weight paper. All of the pages are perforated for easy removal from the book, however, you still need to cut (using scissors or paper cutter) certain parts of the page.
Each page of cards has two on it with a cutting line to separate them. The book also recommends that you trim the perforated side of the cards and the envelopes as it is slightly rough once it is removed from the book.
The fold lines are lightly scored on both the cards and the envelopes. There are written instructions on the method of folding the envelopes as well as stickers at the back of the book that can be used to help seal the envelopes. I don't know how well these envelopes will hold up in the mail but my intent is to use them as gift cards which will not be mailed. If you are going to mail them, be aware that they are an unusual size and will probably require additional postage.
My alcohol-based markers bled through both types of paper.
My water-based markers were mixed. None of them bled through the note card paper but all but Tombow brush end markers bled through the envelopes.
Gel pens and India ink pens did not bleed through or leave marks on the back of either types of paper. I really liked the way that my India ink pens worked with and looked like with these cards.
Colored pencils work well with the slight rough texture. I got could color with both oil and wax based pencils. I was also able to layer and blend well using a blender stick.
