I decided to make a winter card for a little boy at my church since  his birthday is in January and I have so many winter/snowman images.  It turned out sooooo cute!  
This is what I call a panel card.  The front actually has two panels.  
Where I have the big snowflake on the right side of the left panel, you can put any image and actually tuck the right panel under it to keep it closed.
In the photo, the panel on the right is actually part of the front.  To make this card, take a piece of card stock 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and place it on your scoreboard left to right from 0" to 8 1/2".  Score at the 1 1/2" mark and again at the 5 1/2" mark, and then fold the card on the score lines.  On the left panel I glued some snowflake background paper.  On the right panel all I did was score it with my scoreboard vertically every 1/8"  There is room for six vertical score lines on the right panel.  If you click on the photo it will enlarge and you you will have a better view of  the vertical score lines on the right panel.  In my card program  
I added a saying on a piece of card stock, punched it with the Martha Stewart icicle punch, then added some glitter to the icicles, and some blue snowflakes to it.  I also added some more snowflakes, along with one large layered one.  The snowman is a free online image that I colored in Gimp (Gimp is similar to Photoshop.  It is a free program that you can download from online and you can do sooooo much with it.)  I cut out and raised up his hat, nose, and scarf.  I also added glitter to the large snowflake and to the snowman.  And last, but not least, I added some little wiggly eyes to the snowman's face.
