YEE HAW!!! - make a different style card!  Right up my alley.  You see I received a darling Christmas card from my friend Pammie - and my intentions were to create cards like it - with a twist!  I like to enclose a bit of fun such as a gift card or a sweet surprise with my cards, so I left room for just that.

Above is the front of my card using Little Bee - available at Squigglefly's store!   Just click under the picture to go to the webpage.

Everything starts with paper that is at least 8.5x11 - in my case I had some 2 sided 12x12 so have a bit of leftovers for the next one.  The high point of the card is at 5.5 in. - the low point of this card is 3 in.  Just score and fold at 3.5 inches twice across becoming equal fold points.  Attach the side and bottom of the front to create a pocket.

 In that pocket you can do some fancy punching on a tag and attach a gift card or put a gift card inbetween 2 tags as shown.

I colored my Little Bee with copics and the paper is from Tres Jolee from awhile back.  Perfect for this constructions.
I hope you join me in this week's challenge; show us what you can do with a square peg and a round hole at Squigglefly Blogspot.  (click!)
