Today I created this 'Card Folio' measuring  5 1/2 " x  7 1/2 " with a 1/4" spine.  I chose 'Penny's Paper Doll Family Collection' by Graphic 45.  The whole collection is available at 'Scrap N Create'
The large pink flowers are from The Penny Lane Garden Collection by Petaloo.  The small roses are handmade using 'Tiny Tattered Florals' by Sizzix.

I began by cutting all the paper layers and attaching with Art Glitter glue.  Don't forget to cut a navy and green for the cover back.  Kathy Clement has a wonderful tutorial on the basic construction of this folio.  
I burnished all the edges with 'Vintage Photo' Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.

While the glue was setting, I did all the fancy cutting of Penny, her clothes and hats.  

Here's the folio opened up.  The top page holds a small  4" x  6" folio full of Penny's clothes.  The bottom page holds Penny along with Ephemera Cards for photo mats.  There is also a chipboard packet to hold her hats.

This is the  4" x 6" folio opened up.  You'll notice there are no tabs on the clothes.  That's because they all attach with magnets.

                                                           And here's the back cover.
