Day 5 - Card Captain at Michael Strong's Group

Here are two views of my File Folder Card. I start with an 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 inch piece of card stock. Fold it in half as if you were making the usual card. Then trim a small 3 x 7/8 inch section from the top left, if you are looking at your card with the fold on the bottom. It's easier to figure out once you have your paper in hand. You don't have to use my measurements. You can design your file folder card however you wish! I used a corner rounder punch on the edges.

My 2 inserts are 3 x 5 inches. Once mine were a stamped and done, I stapled ribbon for tab on each insert. You can use  a paper rectangle or a punched tab or even make "paper ribbon".
Stamps used: Michael Strong's Mini Cloisonne Hearts, Mini Cloisonne Cat and Dog and Cloisonne Leaves.
Additional stamps used: Hero Arts, Inkadinkado, PrintWorks, Stampendous and Stampin Up.
Distress inks used:  spun sugar, worn lipstick, dried marigold, tumbled tile, broken china, crushed olive
Stampin Up Rose Red
Sizzix Rays embossing folder
A mini green clip was used to folder card closed. You could use a paper clip or just slip your file folder in the envelope.
