Sunday Free File Day

Well, I hope you all are having a great weekend, and I am so mad yet that my friend stood me up on saturday. The last thing I wanted to do was not be at the market for you all, but on the upside, you will all have untill this weekend to do the challenges and find code words to claim your prizes..
Amyway for the first file I wanted it to be something that everyone would get use out of. So after thinking about it and looking through hundreds of files I think I found a winner.

Card Portfolio Template

If you make a card with a lot of embellishments which you don't want smashed into a flat envelope, this gusseted Card Portfolio is for you! It will also hold about six hand-made cards and envelopes—a lovely gift for a loved one! Check out the sample at the bottom of this page.

Tip: Depending on your printer's capabilities, you will probably have to enlarge the template by hand or using a copier. I designed it for cards that are one-quarter of a standard (8.5 x 11) sheet of paper, but it is easy to reduce or enlarge the template for any size card. Simply make the two large rectangles the measurement of your card (or envelope), plus 1/8 inch on each side. Widen the flap accordingly. The other sides (gussets) should stay the same width.

Design idea: Cut Card Portfolio out of freezer paper, and iron your favorite fancy napkin or tissue wrapping paper to the shiny side. (Make sure that you are using only one ply of the napkin!) Use this as the inside of the portfolio—decorate the outside with lovely stamped images and a nice ribbon. It will make a lovely presentation for your beautiful art cards!
