New Style Bendy Card & Tutorial

We all like dimensional cards, bendy cards, etc....
well I think you will LOVE this!!!

My niece sent me a picture of a similar style card and asked me if I knew how to make it....well I had never seen one before but went straight to my craftroom and it took me just a few minutes to come up with something.  I'm not sure what it's called but I'm just calling it a 
New Style Bendy Card.

The Birthday card was my first.  
I used a die to make the top and bottom edges more elegant.  I also die cut butterflies and the fence that's in the background.  Then I added some flowers and pearls and a bow.

The second one I made is this Christmas card.
I used my Cricut Imagine for the 3D Santa and 3D house, and I die cut the trees and deer with a CTMH stamp & die set that they no longer sell.  The cardstock has a beautiful, subtle Winter scene printed on it and I got that from Michaels last Christmas.  I added some Stickles to resemble snow on the edges of the house and trees.
