Card Folio

Mum and I have been playing around with making our own template for a card folio and here is what we've come up with:

This little folder is made from one sheet of A4 cardstock and holds about 5 or 6 cards and envelopes as long as they don't have too many embellishments on them. You could probably fit more if you did "no layer" style cards.

I made 2 of these folders and a set of 10 cards to split between them so each folder has 5 cards and envelopes. The 10 cards were made using a "one sheet wonder" template. This means you stamp one sheet of A4 cardstock with a pattern/deisgn of your choice and then chop it up to use on 10 cards. It's a very quick and easy way to make a lot of cards with minimal supplies. You could use a lot more embellishments if you wanted to but they might not fit in the folder so I put a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter in the centre of all the flowers. It doesn't show well in the photos but just gives the cards a little "bling factor".

I think this would make a really great class so if I get enough interest I will set a date and run a workshop where you can make the folder and all the cards too. Let me know if you'd be interested!!!
