For a special friend

I have a close friend who is a scrapbooker.............she has 2 young children.........and loves putting cute stamped images on her scrapbook pages........usually Magnolia stamps......usually mine!!!
I decided a good xmas present to make for her would be.......a stamped image folder.......with a Magnolia image on it,of course.

Tilda has been watercoloured..........the card is SU......the papers are K & Co.........PM gems.....SU ribbon and sentiment. Again it's a c**p photo.....the card used is all green and deep burgundy........no black in sight!!!

The inside has been decorated to match..........and I'll fill with stamped images.
Nice and easy to make.........a 12 x 9 piece of card.........folded in both directions at the 6" point..........I've rounded the corners on the inside...........and stuck it down at the edges and centre with thin double sided tape......will probably either add some ribbon to tie it closed... ...or some little magnets.
I used the lovely sketch over on the Pollycraft Challenge blog and Just Magnolia want a card for someone special [I think this can scrape in on that one] and Cute Card Thursday want 'just for the girls'.
And.....yes......it's still raining......off to start on my ark!!!!

This is a great idea for a gift Jacky - your friend is going to thoroughly appreciate it!
I hope you don't float away ... our rain has stopped now - that's the problem, we need more of it here.

That's a great gift! I'm going to do a card folder with a bunch of greeting cards for the gift exchange with my inlaws family for Christmas.
