Damask Holder Folder

I decided to have a go at a card set contained within a folder.

Lauren my Daughter runs a Slimming World group and I thought it would be lovely for them to recive a well done card from her so I set too with making her a modern card set
The stamp set used is Damask by Papertrey Ink.

A view of the folder opened up, as you can see I made a spine and stamped it to match.
The ribbon that ties the folder runs below the white card acrossthe front the spine and the back, the loose ends of the ribbon are tucked inside for photography purposes.



The inside of the folder, I made a couple of pockets to hold the cards and envelopes then added some white punched and staped card on top of the pockets.


Stamped and scored 6 matching cards to slot inside the folder.



I thought the words below would be very apt for a good weight loss, so, they were stamped inside the cards.


Of course I stamped a smalled image onto the envelope as I wanted all to match.

B&W Damasks are just so classic and chic at the same time! Love how you've coordinated and crafted it all from the folder to the cards to the envelope! :>
