I created this delightful Pocket Gift Card Holder which is one of the projects on the 3D and Fun Folds CD.
I started with the beautiful Stardream Fuse Vista paper.  I love the metallic sheen it has!   The patterned paper is from the Waiting for Santa & Sweet Season paper pack.  I colored the jingle bells with Twinkling H20s and then finished the card by decorating the Christmas tree with Baby Red Rhinestones.   Easy-peasy!!   All of the instructions, measurements and more are on the 3D and Fun Folds CD.

Linda chose the Flap Fold card for her projects.  She made two beautiful cards - both completely different!   Take a look...

For the base of this Flap Card, I used Stardream Emerald cardstock from Classy Cards 'n Such.  The other papers used on the card came from my paper collection. 
I used Spellbinders Tear Drop Circles on top of the flap and added one of the smaller Spellbinders Standard Large Circles, also in the Stardream Emerald paper.  For the flower, I used the three smallest dies from the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia and finished off the center with Want2Scrap Orange Rhinestones.  On the inside, I layered the DP paper and the Stardream Emerald cardstock and added a gold embossed "Merry Christmas" stamp from Artistic Impressions and embellished with a small poinsettia.

Linda's second Flap Card features beautiful butterflies!

For this Flap Card, I used Stardream Rose Quartz Cardstock as the card base.  I added a mat of the beautiful Butterfly Cardstock to the front.  On the flap, I used the Spellbinders Butterflies Circles die cut from the Butterfly Cardstock and added a circle of the Rose Quartz using the Spellbinders Standard Large Circles.  I topped this off with a small butterfly die cut from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The butterfly was embellished with pink pearls from Want2Scrap.  Since this card can be used for many occasions, I did not add a sentiment at this time but will choose an appropriate one before it is sent to the recipient.
