I folded the card in half using bone folder. I like to use bone folder because it will give you a smooth fold. If you don't have one, use the backside or dull side of a butter knife.

This card is somewhat thick. It is best if you are sending this by mail to use a padded envelope. Or you can use a tissue to wrap it up with a bow. Have fun and be creative. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!!
