Oriental Card Portfolio with Matching Cards

First of all, I invite you to "stay tuned" as my Blog Candy Giveaway #3 will be posted very soon for your chance to win some yummy "candy." As the saying goes, "Three's a charm." :-)

I'm really having fun with my new sets of Spellbinder dies from Island Scrapbooking. This is my favorite.

This card portfolio is SOOOOO EASY to make. Are you like me.....thinking of Christmas already? This would sure make a nice gift.

Also, the portfolio can be used for cards with 3-D flowers or one with a lot of bling. After all our hard work creating a "masterpiece" card, we sure wouldn't want the recipient to receive crushed flowers or embellishments. Ahhhh!

A few years ago, while "surfing the 'net," I came across this great website that had LOTS of awesome and free templates. Check it out at Click on Mirkwood Designs Templates & More, then click on Templates. ENJOY!!!

Below is the back view of the portfolio...
