Card Holder - Everything Eleanor

I am so pleased with the cards that I made with the Everything Eleanor stamp set that I decided that I should make a card folder to keep them in, that way they will stay nice and clean and I should in theory be able to find them easily enough. Mind you, now that I have finished the cards and the folder I am not sure that my mum and daughter are going to get the cards for their birthday's after all.

The folder was made out of one sheet of Crumb Cake card stock and I thought it would be a good idea to stay with the Everything Eleanor theme.

Closed folder with cards inside. 

I decided to make a wrap to keep the folder closed. This is a simple but effective way
of keeping the folder closed and doubles up as a pretty decoration.

The wrap was made out of a strip of Crumb Cake that had been punched using the Lace Ribbon Punch and a strip of Calypso Coral. The flowers which were stamped in Calypso Coral onto Very Vanilla were finished off with some pearls.

The inside flap that holds the cards was decorated with a strip of the Patterns Designer Series paper in Soft Suede.

The finished folder with cards inside would make a lovely gift or alternatively it is just a lovely way of keeping all your cards together in one place. I can see me making a few of these folders with various themes as a way of keeping them together.
