Travelling Folder card

Hello and happy Saturday. Today I have a card for you from Sheena Douglas's Destination set. It's a Travelling Folder Card. It's meant to send to someone who is going on a trip. This was really fun to make and also fun to think about all the things I could stick in the folder for the traveller. See what you think:

Score a 9 by 7 Tan card at 4 1/2 and 5 3/4. Cut the V in bottom center as shown.

I used paper clips to hold the flaps. Staples would work too. I added the "Happiness" quote to the top left and the "To Sail" quote to the bottom right flap.  I also added "Travel" using  alphabet tags to the left flap.

Here are the goodies inside the folder. A bookmark (gotta read a book on the plane) some stamps for sending home a postcard, a gift certificate to eat a meal and of course some good old cash! To the left is a card that says "Have Fun" inside.

This is the card inside the folder. I sponged the same inks as I did on the bookmark and also added the same travel ribbon.                                                                  
Above is the cover of the folder. The same inks were sponged on a cream card for the background. The image was split and then layered to  lighter cream cards and then mounted with the twine. The corners were notched at two opposite ends and then the card was layered to a darker brown card and  then to the folder.                                                                     
This was really fun to make. Hope you enjoyed it and stop back next Saturday. Be sure to check out the other designer's cards.
