2012 Artisan Finalist Blog Hop - Day 9

Since we are making a circle, you may have arrived here from Sandie Conner's blog.  If you did, you saw her fabulous project.  If not, you will see it as you complete the circle.

Today, I'm sharing one of my 3D projects - a card folio (it could actually be used as a photo album after the cards have been used) with four coordinating cards.  The card folio was inspired by one similar in a class planner by Andrea Walford.   Because there are soooo many parts and details on this project, I'm sharing more pictures today - enjoy!!!

Front Cover - I embossed the rectangular designer frame and cut it out before stamping my image.  I finished the flowers by adding buttons with jewels in center of each.  I also created a flag with a stamped sentiment.  The binding for the card folio is detailed by using layers of the adorning accents edgelits and embossing the top edge for more depth. 

The inside has four clear envelopes that hold the cards below.  There is also pocket that holds envelopes that are stamped to coordinate with the cards.
Each card uses the same basic design:  a strip of designer paper, a knotted ribbon, and an image with a greeting either punched or die cut and placed over ribbon with dimensionals. 

This would make a great stamp camp!  The recipient could fill the envelopes with photos after they've used the cards to make a simple scrapbook.
