Jaded Blossom Customer Challenge Time!!

Welcome back!  Today I'm sharing with you a project that I've made for the Jaded Blossom Customer Challenge.  July's challenge is a big deal as July is their customer appreciation month and the challenge projects are up for some pretty great prizes!  Check that all out HERE!  Also, since I used so many different JB stamp sets I'm not going to link you to each individual set but rather the store HERE.  I've also used the Alphabet Dies set for any numbers and letters that you see.  Finally, all SVG files are from SVG Cutting Files.   My hubby is going to be gone for some training and I usually make a card for him for each day that he is going to be gone.  This time I decided to put them all into one project...an accordion file folder (you can find the directions for scoring and such on Splitcoaststampers).  Are you ready?  I believe I have nine photos of my project and each one of them includes Jaded Blossom of some sort!  Here we go:
 Above is the front of the accordion file folder.  I started out with a fun set called Science Matters.  I actually followed a Mojo Monday sketch for a tall and skinny card for the layout on the front.  The sticker embellishments are from the paper pack that I used which is a long retired SU! simply scrappin' kit.  I'm tying the folder together with a piece of yellow/white twine just tied in a bow.  It should make it super easy for my hubby to get into the folder.
 Above is what he'll see when he first opens the folder.  You can see that I've added the date on which  he should pull each panel out and read what I've written. 
The far left panel is the first he'll pull out and is made with the Sweet Travels and United States Map.  I've used the fabulous SVG file that JB provides for their image stamps to make the US outline.  I've added a fun pull piece with a tab that says Limited Edition.
The panel above is my favorite.  I've used the Protect and Serve set (I've also used that set on the pocket that the panel fits in.), a heart from the Heart Splatters set, and a couple of SVG files from SVG Cutting Files.  On a personal note...I'll probably write something about his '6' being cute...lol! 
The next panel uses the set Olive you.  Not a whole bunch of explanation is needed here, is there?
And the last panel on the inside which is the far right and uses the set Cheesy Pick Ups 3, the heart from the United States Map set, and (both on the panel and the pocket) SVG's from SVG Cutting Files.   
 Because I needed one more spot for the day before he comes home I've added a pocket to the back panel that I decorated with the date and a fun little 'love you!'.  I've used yellow here because yellow is my hubby's favorite color.  The dot on the exclamation point is a flat gold sequin.
 The final set I've used on this little note card is a freebie from some time ago called You're My Butter Half.  The red hearts don't really match but I have to use red when I make hearts...it is the only way my brain will let me do it!
Here is what the back looks like.  I've added a spot to put my name and the year that I made this for him. 

So...there you have it!  What do you think?  I have to say I'm about as proud of this project as I am of the project that will be posted on Friday (it is awesome, too...make sure you stop back or subscribe to my blog so that you see it!).  I really think my hubby will be blown away by the thought and work that went into making this and you know what?  He deserves it...he works hard for us, for his department, and for the people of the University and town we live in!!

I love your comments so please feel free to leave one!  See you here on Friday!!
