Truth About Cats and Dogs: Authentique Companions Card Folio Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Have you had a chance to play with Authentique's delightfully whimsical Companions collection yet?  This collection has it all: gorgeous patterns, cute cut aparts and touching truths about cats and dogs.  I spent a delightful morning creating this pair of fun card folios.

I find I am a little bit jealous of this fashionable feline and dapper doggie.  (I want the glasses...and the hair bow wow wow!)

Each 5 1/2" x 7" folio has a 1/2" spine, pockets and inserts.  I fussy cut the cute pooches from the border on Companions Five.  Then I popped it up on 3 layers of dimensionals to really make it stand out.

I used a circle die to create the fun side tab feature on each folio.  These are mirror images except for a few changes in flowers.

The inside of each card has a pair of pockets.

TIP: Turn a 4" x 6" cut apart card into a pocket then fill it with a trimmed down version of another 4" x 6" cut apart.  Add a cute paper clip embellishment to keep the card from slipping down too far into the pocket.  I'll show you how to do this in the video tutorial below.

You'll also learn how to create this adorable 4 1/4" x 6" folio from a single sheet of Authentique Spectrum Cardstock.  You won't believe how easy it is to make!

I'll also show you how to make these cutie patootie tab top inserts and different styles of flaps.

So are you ready to get your craft on?   Just press play!

This is one of the cutest pet collections I've ever had the privilege to play with.  I hope I shared some tips and tricks that you can use in your own crafty adventures.

Thanks for stopping by!
