Are you tired of file folder cards yet? I'm not!!!! I love them!
I played around with this version of the file folder card. I trimmed the front of the card down more than the 1/2" I normally do. For this card ,I went and inch and a half. Just fun!!! I embossed the front of the card using the honeycomb embossing folder . This is one of my favorite embossing folders. I also used the Six Sided Sampler stamp set and Hexagon Punch Bundle . I wanted to use a "non" Christmas stamp set for this card. I have lots of Christmas stamps, current and retired. But it was more fun for me to be creative with this card and think outside my Christmas box of toys!
I used my favorite color combo: cherry cobbler, old olive, and crumb cake. I also used the new Gold Metallic Encore ink pad . I love this gold pad. It is hard to see in the photo but it has a great shimmer to it. I did not need to heat set this on the crumb cake but I have found that I need to heat set the gold ink on the whispering white cardstock since the WW cardstock is very slick. A quick extra step that works like a charm!
I really like this card! I love the chevron punch- I think it adds a little pop to the card! Lots of fun to play and think outside the box! Have you tried the new file folder cards using the Envelope Punch Board ?
