Sometimes for a finish I tear the envelope with the selected cards in it through the middle, then place both pieces together and tear it again.
If you do this carefully and with a flourish, audience cannot see the cards inside and believe that there is nothing left in the envelope. This is added SHOWMANSHIP. You have not shown envelope to be empty after cards have risen, but tearing it accents the fact that there is nothing inside.
The tearing is not necessary, however, for audience has seen the cards rise and does not suspect that anything is left in envelope.
If you have an assistant, you may have him cause the cards to rise by pulling thread from the wings as explained in previous effect.
