I figured I would round out my week with another fun file folder card. I wanted to say that I have had several comments on how to make them. I did not do a tutorial of the file folder card because there are some GREAT videos on youtube on how to make them! I have watched several, each has a little different take on them which is fun to see and compare. But even better to try them out for yourself! There is one step that I found a little confusing, which side of the paper to trim off after you make your tab and punch on each side. The videos show it much better than I could in pictures. And since there are several tutorial videos already, I didn't feel like I could add anything new to the idea by doing my own tutorial. Do a search on youtube for file folder cards- there are several videos!! And then.....test it out for yourself!!!
I made this card using the Bootiful Occassions Stamp set .
Isn't this a great stamp set!!!?? I love that it is an all occasions stamp set! I will tell you that I cut the sentiments off the boot part of the stamp. I made one solid cut so I can use them with or without the sentiments. Keep in mind, these are your stamps, so make them work for YOU!!! This way, I can enjoy just the boots or the boots with the sentiments! Perfect for me!!
I also used the Tape It stamp set for the Washi tape at the bottom of my card. I used the Tag It framelit set to cut the boot tag out. I added a paper doily as a layer- colored with a sponge dauber and a piece of chevron ribbon! I love this ribbon!! Also I add some candy dots to the side of the card. I love the candy dots. Great way to add some interest without bulk or weight!
I used the Winter Frost DSP on this card. So pretty!
When I add a sentiment to this card- I will stamp it on a piece of whispering white cardstock and layer on top since my piece of DSP is so busy!
I need to stop making file folder cards.....but I can't!!!!! So much fun!!!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend. Do you have any crafting plans this weekend? My younger two boys have a soccer game at 11:00 am and then it will be crafting time after that!!! Can't wait to sit down and work on some of my ideas that I have floating around!
