Mocha Morning Card Folio

08 Jan

     A restless night, a bit too much caffeine resulted in this new Mocha Morning Card Folio. The six cards it contains are styled for both women and men, though I would not dare to send any man I know any card that has a pearl on it – hence the metallic copper brads… lol…


     Here are the first two feminine cards cards, “Just for You” and “Happy Birthday”. The flocked DSP is simply stunning!

     One feminine and one masculine cards, “Love you much” and “Celebrate Today”. Though it has a bit of flourishes, the “Perfectly Penned” stamp set works even on a man’s card…

     The last two cards in the folio are both masculine cards, “Get Well” and “Thank You”. The metallic sheen DSP looks so very classy against the Early Expresso CS, doesn’t it…?


     The last photo shows the card folio closed. Lots of CS and DSP have gone to the way of the trach can before I came up with a folio that was satisfactory… And of course, after the folio was complete, I have realized I could have made some changes for a much better result – but I was quite tired by that point and stopped…

     For a better view of the individual cards, feel free to check out my Flickr “Mocha Morning Card Folio“.

    These are such elegant designs, you have inspired me to make a few more masculine cards. The rich earth tones look great.

      Thank you, Sammie! Neutral colors seem to appeal to me the older I get 🙂
