Card Holder

Now this was such a simple project for me in my head. lol. I thought I would just take a sheet of this SU Groovy Guava as it is not a colour I use a lot on my cards and place some circles from scrap paper on the front. Yeah!!! Easier said than done. I started this project last night and finally finished this morning. I am happy with it now. I needed the card holder to send off some cards to a friend.

So I used an A4 sheet of SU Groovy Guava folded up approx 5cm along the long edge. Then folded in half to create the folder. I then cut a 'v' shape from the centre of the folded up flap and a small triangle from each end of the flap...this makes it sit nicer.

Next I cut lots of circles with my Nestabilities both Scalloped Edged and Plain Circles. I have used white card which I embossed through my 'Swiss Dots' folder in the cuttlebug. Also used papers from the "Once Upon a Time" paper pack I have. I mixed and matched the circles. I stamped circles onto the card folder using the frames from my 2" Just Rite Stampers set. Threaded through white cross grain ribbon and tied in a bow. When I finished the folder it all looked a bit bare so I decided to doodle around the edge in gold looked horrible. Thankfully, I have these wonderful black border stickers from 'The Sticker Store' and it covered my mistake beautifully and was just what I wanted to finish the folder off. I did add a line of gold pen around the black border to hide my earlier markings. :-)

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
