File it under Birthday.

I finally broke down and tried one of these file folder cards. Once you get the cutting down its easy but man what I time I had getting it down, lol!

The base of the card is Chocolate Chip. I attached a piece of Blizzard wrapping paper to the front of the file folder. The belly wrap is Chocolate Chip with a scallop circle to cover the seam. I stamped the word Original from the Office Accoutrement stamp set in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White and punched it out with the circle punch. I added three white metal buttons type embellishments to add interest to the brown strip. The next picture shows the file insert.

I used Bashful Blue for the base of the insert. The next layer is Whisper White. I stamped the verse in Chocolate Chip and then the Happy Birthday in Bashful Blue. Both of those stamps are from the It's Your Birthday stamp set. The dots around the edge are free hand. And the tab is from Totally Tabs and is stamped on Whisper White with Chocolate Chip and punch out with the Round Tab punch.

Very cute Mary Jo, I had a heck of a time getting my file folder tops the way I wanted them too!! Made them two different times, and made them wrong each time I started and had to do them over. But, glad I did them. Just stinkin cute.
