The band slides off, and the card is unfolded to reveal the message inside. I love the patterns of the Florentine paper--they lend themselves perfectly for creating the belly band of this card. I picked one of the beautiful stripes that had a scallop beneath which I hand trimmed. The colors are rich and elegant, perfect for so many occasions.
