Holiday Cards with Xyron

The Xyron Design Team will be sharing holiday cards this week so be sure to stop by the Xyron Facebook page and check them out.
I made three cards to share this week. My first card is a fun pocket card. I kept it simple with just a bit of stamping and some ribbon on the card front. 

I will be using these cards to send family photos, but these would be great to send gift cards or other small items as well.

For my second card I cut two triangles and covered each one with washi tape. I used my 5" Creative Station and made DIY foam adhesive to adhere my trees to the card and add a bit of dimension. I added a sentiment to the bottom of the trees to complete the card.

 For my last card I also kept the front of the card simple and used more of the washi tape and stamping.

The card opens to reveal two pockets to hold cocoa packets and a tube of marshmellows. Perfect for a chilly evening indoors. I started with a 5 1/2 inch tube with a 3/4 inch diameter and created my card to fit the tube and added a 1/4 inch deep pocket on each side to hold the cocoa packets.
