Embellish the front of the Folder as much or as little as you like.  The main thing, REPEAT the colors and images used on the cards inside for a professional look.

 

20210318_144327

Here are the four standard cards and envelopes in this Folder. The same crisp, snappy True Love Designer Paper #154281 was used on this entire project.  I used the Medium Daisy Punch #149517 and used the small daisy-like print on each card. The accent is Silver Foil Paper #132178 and the little heart from the Dog Builder Punch #148543. The cards are fast and simple. Pick your favorite designer series paper and try this!
