Christmas Cards with Pebbles Inc. paper

These are really fun to make. Start with a 12x12 paper, cut 1 inch from one side making it 12x11, then along the 12 inch side cut into 3 pieces at 4 inches making them 11x4. Make sense? then fold the paper in half making it 4x5 1/2. Then take the top and fold it back down at whatever length you want the flap to be mine is at 1 1/2 I think. I used a little Pebbles Inc. pad that my friend gave me for my birthday (thanks Savannah) and finished them off with some ribbon and then adhered a die cut sticker that was included with the pad on with a pop dot. I also finished it off with some pretty oval pearls from Martha Stewart, courtesy of Big Lots that I found a couple months ago. Click on the picture to enlarge it... Just as a side note, I wrapped my ribbon around 2 layers here, the flap and the middle. You could easily wrap it all the way around for a "pocket" card or you could just wrap it around the 1 1/2 in flap for a tri-fold looking card. This part will fall open from the tree paper down.
This is a card I made with the scraps left over from the cards above, I love using every last piece of scrap when I have to cut some off. The tree trunk is from the 1 inch piece left on the 11x12 paper all the rest is what I had to cut from my little pad so the pieces would fit on the cards above. I used my folk star paper punch and some DCWV glitter paper for the star and adhered it with a pop dot. Stamped Merry Christmas with a Unity stamp set and the snowman is from CTMH- O Christmas Tree set. I thought about adding some jewels for ornaments but didn't do it.. yet!
