Cards & a Folio!! Great Christmas gift!!!

I redid my folio & card set that I posted a while back. I did not really like the folio as it needed a spine so the cards would fit better. I put a 1/4" spine on this one and cut out the bottom of the spine so that when it is folded it doesn't buckle.

My cards all had ribbon on them and they simply refused to fit in a flat folio. The front of the folio is made with the Big Shot Top Note die. I simply cut the whisper white top note where the perforations were so it would layer on the bashful blue.

This comes together rather quickly and is inexpensive to make. It would make a very nice Christmas present when you just need a little something for someone. You could put any sentiment at the top of the cards!!

Thanks to Lisa T. for reminding me I had this!!! If you want to see some more really cool projects check out her blog!!! She has some cute magnets made with the All in the Family stamp set and one of the accent & elements tins.

Stamps: Upsy Daisy
Paper: not quite navy, bashful blue, whisper white
Ink: so saffron, pumpkin pie, not quite navy, bashful blue, riding hood red, pink pirouette, certainly celery, kiwi kiss

(By the way-see the felt fusion flower & filigree brad? Wanna know why it is there? Because I got not quite navy ink on my fingers and then on the white card. But don't tell anyone!!!)
