I scored my red textured card (see diagram below). Attached separate pieces for the flaps.
I embossed white cardstock using Crafters Companion "Merry Christmas folder & Sheena Douglas "Holly folder. Rubbed the high points with Rub n Buff. Merry with a red and the holly with a gold and a touch of a green. Trimmed them down to leave a scant 1/16" all around and adhered to card.
eCut the "Holly & Ivy" on white cardstock and colored while on mat with Distress "Festive Berry". Removed from mat and applied Versamark all over and clear embossed.Cut a shadow of the words and colored with "Pumice Stone" Adhered the two elements together.
Die cut the ovals (Spellbinders) from white cardstock, applied PVA glue all over and adhered the word then while glue is still wet, sprinkled with Distress glitter "Star Dust". Brushed off excess. Adhered to either side of card flaps.
Stamped the quote ("Christmas is the Day" 9 pce set) on white cardstock and die cut with Spellbinders "Floral Ovals" and sponged edges with a dirty red sponge. Adhered to inside of card.
Sewed a piece of red elastic (from a chocolate gift last year...) onto the ends of my red/gold ribbon. Punched a 3/4" circle from white cardstock and stapled the mid point of the elastic to the circle using Tim's tiny attacher. Adhered circle to card with glue. Tied ribbon around card and tied a bow. (ps the ribbon can just be slid off without loosing it or having to untie it and keeps the card closed...)
I used a 12" w cardstock and cut down to 5" x 12" (PS you can use 8.5" x 11" as well - your ends will just be smaller.)
Scored as indicated. Then adhere the flaps.
To alter the size, just find the middle of your cardstock. Score equal distance on both sides of the middle. Then score at the thickness you want, then score (equal to the mid point to your first score). Then whatever is left will be what you adhered your flaps. The flaps can even extend past the width of your card. Trim to height desired.
