Ever wonder how to reuse those… embellishment packages that have self adhesive and a topper?

Finished product = a card embellished with a cutout image of a castle and a little gifty attached to outside with a glue dot. I'll be mailing this to my 9th grade pen-pal Tay tomorrow, I know she'll just love it!
