Today’s card is a fun fold that is super easy and can be just a card, or it’s perfect for including a gift card.  I am using the Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies stamp stamp set, but this fun fold pocket card is perfect with any stamps and papers, so really, it’s more about the fun fold that the actual project today!
