Puns From the Past Cards & Folio

This is a set of 4 cards I made with a matching folio. I was inspired by a set of cards I saw on Christine's Creations some time ago. I loved the color combination of Riding Hood Red, Kraft, and Chocolate Chip. I must admit that this was my favorite new set out of this catalog but I think I have only used it twice. I just love the images and the sayings are a hoot!!
The flowers on the front of the folio are punched with the 5-Petal flower punch and layered with a felt flower and a rhinestone brad. I don't have a small alphabet set so I just hand wrote "cards".

The folio is very easy to make. Cut a piece of card stock (I used textured card stock) 10 1/4" by 9" and score it at 5" and 5 1/4" (or 5" from each side giving you a 1/4" spine) along the 10 1/4" width. Then score the 9" side at 3" to make the pockets. Fold up the bottom where you scored at 3" and cut out the little strip in the middle. A picture is worth a thousand words so . . . Here is a photo of the inside of another folio I made. I make my folio with a spine so cards with embellishments will fit.

If the rain holds off I am going to plant at least some of my garden. Right now it is really muddy and I think I would sink to my knees!!!

You did a nice job with this! I too like the color combo. Did you outline every flower? Looks like you did, what a big job! Very nice.
