Design Team project #2 by Astrid featuring Prima Almanac Collection

Hello again dear Snazzy visitors. Here is my second project for this month. It's also the last one featuring this collection so for a chance to win the stamps and embellishments, don't forget to leave a comment of the first post of this month by clicking on the picture in the sidebar on the right.

This is a little card holder, always comes in handy. You can find a great tutorial with video on how to make this on Splitcoast Stampers. Just click this link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/accordionstylecardholder/ (Sorry I am using google chrome and it won't let me make links clickable so you may just have to copy and paste lol if you want to look)
Anyway, here is my version, quite different, hope you like it. I think the pictures pretty much speak for themselves so I won't bore you with a long description. 

Front of holder. All the pretty buttons come with the collection!

Inside with tabs for different types of cards

Side view

Detail. The pretty letters come with the collection! You just have to cut them out.
If you are looking for a fun project for yourself or to give as a gift, give it a try. These papers are just perfect for it I think.

Well, that's it for now, don't forget to come back on Monday when we are having a challenge with the theme "Spring Colours" and another chance to win a fab prize!

As Sandie said this is a gorgeous project Astrid and thanks for the link as I think I'd like to make a couple of these as gifts. I love your attention to detail and this wonderful collection is just perfect of creating this type of project.

Once again a beautiful finale to showcase these lovely products.
