BSS Monday Idea - Twisted Card

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
I saw this card idea on SCS and could not wait to try it. There are directions at this link:
Here's my take on the Twisted Card
It starts with a piece of card stock 11x41/2 inches. Score a line from the top right hand corner to the bottom left hand corner. Fold on the score line, then fold in half to create the card. You can have a pocket on the front and inside or you can glue them shut if you don't want pockets.
Great for giving little gifts like tickets or gift cards.
Base cardstock is green pearlized textured. The designer paper is 6x6 sheets that
are on the counter at the store, but I don't know whose they are, ask Sharon.
The Oval is a Quick Kutz Lacy Oval. The sentiment is Art Gone Wild (G2-615).
The border die is Martha Stewart. Ribbon is from my stash.
This is the inside. On the front I glued the pocket shut. On the inside I used
the pocket for a gift card.

Base card is gold textured cardstock. The designer paper is
Basic Gray Jovial Paper Pad 6x6. Both the punches, the pine boughs and
the snowflakes are from Martha Stewart. The darling little "Jingle Tots"
are Art Impressions (UMT3606). Sentiment is Penny Black (3517F).
Gold mirror paper strip along the edge of the pocket.
This is the inside, the stamp has the four Tots on it, I just cut them out
and used two on the front and two on the inside.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Monday.  Until later..........
