I enjoyed making these cards from scraps. I realized that when making a folded card, you still needed a big enough cardstock. Well I had lots of smaller sized ones and I wanted to save the bigger ones for layouts. So I tried making cards using the smaller cardstocks I had. Here goes...

1. Folder shaped card
(the two pieces are held together by a tab.


2. Pocket type card
The note card at the back will hold my message


Hope you all have a good holiday!

I love them! I've been looking for ways to do this lately, as I'm running low on cardstock. I also saw in Scrapbooks, etc. where someone sewed the two pieces of the card together, so it wasn't a big piece of cardstock. Thanks for showing!
