Office Accoutrement File Folder card

Another different type of card we did at the Stamp-A-Stack last Saturday! Since Stampin' Up! now has this unique new Round Tab Punch, I was excited to come up with this "file folder" card using Office Accoutrements stamp set, Notations Paper, the Round Tab punch, and the Corner Rounder punch all of which are perfect for this theme!! I love this "Memo" stamp from the set! What fun! The color scheme is keyed off the Notations Designer paper that is along the upper back portion of the card where the tab was added. That's one of the great things about designer paper, it gives your color scheme without you having to experiment as to what color goes with what. It's all right there for you! This particular paper has Taken With Teal, Cool Caribbean, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Sahara Sand and Vanilla and all those colors are used in this card. The "folder" is Sahara Sand cardstock, corners rounded with punch then stamped with Vanilla Craft Ink to reflect the vanilla flowers in the paper and provide a subtle background. The large flower is from the set and the smaller flowers were punched with the Spring Flowers punch and adhered with a silver brad. The round paper clip is a great embellishment for this style card.

The inside of the card uses a verse from the birthday set "It's Your Birthday" (p. 182), and there is plenty of room to write a message to the recipient. The designer paper has small numbers on it, so there is a subtle coordination that goes well with this message. : )

This would be a super card to send to anyone, and how much fun to send to someone who works in an office.

Thanks for dropping by! Happy Wednesday!
