Artisan Facebook Friday!

Smiley from millan.netI am excited to finally be sharing this little card folder with all y'all! I made this as my first "Facebook" project as a member of Stampin' Up's Artisan Design Team. We are being asked to create one project a month (in addition to other projects!) that will be showcased on Stampin' Up's Facebook page, and this is what I came up with.

Here is what it looks like on the inside ... I made a set of four cards (using the new In Colors!) to tuck inside the little pockets. The cards measure 3 3/4" by 4 3/4", so you will need pieces of cardstock that are 7 1/2" x 4 3/4" folded in half to create them ...

To make the pen holder, cut two pieces of cardstock to 3/4" x 2 1/4". Score at 3/4" and 1 1/2" and fold along score lines. These will be adhered to the finished folder approximately 1" from the top and bottom edges ... make sense? When I am typing instructions I always feel like I am trying to get English out of Italian translated via Japanese!!

This is a little template I created that shows where you cut and fold ... the red dashed lines are fold lines, and the black solid lines are for cutting ... click on the picture to enlarge it. You will probably hafta zoom in a bit as well (use your control or command key AND the "+" key). I have had a lot of issues with trying to attach downloadable files to Blogger ... it doesn't seem to like to do it!!
