Snip and Tuck Card

Hi all,
  I have an easy to make card that I got off the Stampin' Up site and it is so sweet.
  3" X 12" piece of cardstock.  Fold in half which creates a 3" x 6" card.  Approx 2" from the open end of the card, center, use a piercing tool to make a hole through both layers.
  Use a paper cutter to cut on the angle towards the hole on the front and then do the opposite angle for the back of the card.

 A picture so you can see a bit clearer of what to do.  Stamp along the top edge of the card.  Decorate the front of the card, making sure one of the embellishments covers the hole, or at least that part of the cut

 Tuck the front flap behind the back flap and the slits will just fit in evenly.  You should be able to see from the top two pictures how to do that.  If not just let me know, and I will do a more detailed description.
I think this card is so easy and so different to make for someone.
