Peacock Feather Card Set

Happy Sunday!!!

I hope you are having a terrific weekend so far. I have a fun card set to share with you todaythat I made for my Blogstar gig on the Stampendous Blog!

I started with a Card Portfolio from Creative Cuts & More and then filled it with four matching cards and envelopes for an easy thoughtful gift.

Here is the Card Portfolio all closed up:

Here's how it looks when you untie the bow and open it up:

Here is a close up view of one of the cards:'s the whole set:

The card folio comes all ready cut out from Creative Cuts & More so you just need to put it together. Add the ribbon and decorate the front as if it is the front of one of the cards. This is a quick and simple gift perfect for that someone special in your life!
