Card for Julie and her dh for their Anniversary :)

This card is one that I made for Julie and her dh, their anniversary is this weekend :)! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY guys :)! I also wanted to do something else for them, didn't know what to do, then I had a great idea...I made one of those card folio's that I showed the tutorial for from someone elses blog. I had 4 cards and 4 envelopes to go inside the card folio, I think that if you have anymore cards and envelopes in there it wouldn't look nice. I am very very happy with how they turned out :)!! Sorry some of the pictures are dark, lol, go over to Julie's blog I am sure there will be better pics there :p!

For my card folio I used some light blue cardstock that I got from Kim, I scored the cardstock at 2" to make the pocket part of the folio. Next, I scored the cardstock at the 5 1/2" mark and then I took some brown cardstock and attached a piece of fall patterned paper to it. Then, I stamped the flower image onto a piece of white cardstock and attached that to some brown cardstock. The flower stamp is from Lizzie Anne Designs "Jolie's Fleurs" stamp set and the sentiment is from "Baroque Motif". The brown ribbon came from Michael's, and used my Crop-A-dile to punch the hole into the side of my folio.

The first card that I made I used some left over patterned paper that I got from Michael's, then I used some scrap piece of "Barely Banana" cardstock to make sort of a window to put my sentiment in. The sentiment I used came from the SU stamp set called "Baroque Motif", and I then cut out by hand two corner pieces attached them using come photo stickers. I really like that patterned paper that this card is made out of, I think it is the lovely colors that are in it :D!

The second card I made from Chocolate chip cardstock, attached it to white cardstock base and stamped 4 Paisely's on all the corners of the brown cardstock. The paisely and the flower stamp came from the Jolies Fleurs stamp set by Lizzie Anne Designs. I attached the stamped flower image on a piece of barely banana cardstock, which then got attached to my brown cardstock using photo stickers. I must say that I am really enjoying using the Jolies fleurs stamp set, dunno what it is I love about them...they are just a great stamp set :). Weird my card it straight, but it looks clopsided here

The next card I made I used white cardstock as my base, then I attached pattern floral paper to it, stamped a flower onto some white cardstock and cut out the flower. Next, I attached the flower onto the patterned paper using a dimensional...colored in the flower using my Tombow markers. Easy card to make but looks amazing :D!

The 4th card I made I used certainly celery cardstock attached a strip of floral patterned paper to the card using picture stickers. Then, I stamped on small flourishes all over the card using my versamark ink pad and I think the flourishes came from the Jolie's Fleurs stamp set too :)! I then stamped the "Get Well" sentiment onto the card using black ink by Brillance and voila!! Lol, sorry for this card being sideways :p!
