Snowman Holiday Card with a Little Surprise!

This little snowman is sooo adorable.  Don't you think?  And guess what? There's a little surprise inside, which is what I love most about this card.  Well, next to how lovable the snowman is.  It's a standard size card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") that fits into a standard size (A2) envelope but when you open it there's a pocket inside to put a gift card.  How adorable is that?!  Read below for the tip on how to make it.

*Tip:  Here's how to make the gift card pocket - simply cut a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of card stock.  Score it at 2" and 5  1/2".  Using an oval punch, punch half an oval out off the end that is closest to the 2" score line.  Then, fold at that same score line and use double faced sticky strip to adhere the pocket closed.  Complete the card as you would usually do making each additional layer 1/4" small than the first. It's that simple!
