Card Portfolio, Great teacher's gift!

I went to a Retreat a couple of weeks ago for Stampin' Up demonstrators. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. We did 6 projects so I'm going to share one of them today. This is a fun card portfolio we did and it included 3 matching cards. This is the front of the portfolio. We used the Friends 24-7 stamp set, Friendly Words wheel and the georgous Parisian Breeze Designer Paper. This paper is cardstock weight and is textured. Wow, while I'm thinking about it, our designer paper is on sale this month!

OK, back to our project, here is the portfolio opened. I love how the cards all match the portfolio so it is a great gift! Another thing I love is that the portfolio is made with a single sheet of 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock. We just folded up 2 1/2" on the long side to form the pockets and then folded that in half. We stamped the front of the portfolio with the Bella Toile background stamp and then added a strip of white cardstock wheeled with matching Baja Breeze ink. The butterfly cut with the Beautiful Butterflies die and tied with ribbon. Quick and easy!

The inside of the portfolio is stamped on the flap only in Creamy Caramel ink.

Here are the 3 fantastic cards we made to fill the portfolio. I just put 10 cards and envelopes in my portfolio and they fit so this would make a great gift to give your children's teachers for the end of the year. They always need lots of thank you cards.
