Quick and Classy File Folder Card

I have a quick but classy card to share with you today. It is a file folder card made with our new Envelope Punch Board.  I found this amazing video by fellow demonstrator Patty Bennett on how to make file folder cards and had to try one immediately.  I used these fabulous colors from Dynamic Duos.
I just LOVE these two colors together and thought they would make a fabulous thank you card. 
I am SOOO glad that I didn't sell all of my paper stacks at my annual Retirement and BOGO Sale that I had this summer. These papers have come in quite handy for making envelopes and now decorating these cute file folder cards. I don't use retired items in my workshops, but I decided that it doesn't really matter if I use them for the challenges I participate in...unless it is against the challenge rules, of course. :) I loved this black polka dot pattern that was in the last stack, and the backside is the print that you can see up at the top.  I closed the pocket on my card with the washi tape strip.  The flower and sentiment are embossed in black and I also sponged on some random VersaMark splotches and embossed those in black as well to dirty the card up a bit. There is a large pearl in the center of the flower...not sure why it looks so weird in the picture! haha The card pulls out of the pocket to reveal a message at the bottom.  I cannot wait to try some more versions of the file folder card!
