Caribou inspires me!

Sorry for the late post! My internet is down at home. Shh, don't tell my boss I'm posting from work, OK?
For this week's workshop wow challenge, I was inspired by this cup wrap from Caribou Coffee.
I chose to make a stationery portfolio. I originally posted about them here. I used Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red. I haven't used my Big Flowers set in ages, so I used that in place of the snowflakes.
The stationery portfolio is a great workshop project. It holds standard sized cards and envelopes, so it makes a great gift as well.

Here's what the full sheet looks like before scoring and folding.
Here is after the scoring and cutting.
For the closure, I added one of the new corduroy buttons on the front. On the back, I punched 2 small holes and tied a loop of linen thread to loop over the button.
Happy stamping!
