Happy Birthday, Fancy Fold Gift Card Holder

Happy Tuesday!

Yes, this is my third fancy fold card in less than a week.  I couldn't help but make another fancy is too much fun.  :)  This time, I made a birthday gift card holder.
The card is easy to make: cut 12" x 12" ivory card stock to 4" wide.  Score "down" at 4.5", 5.5" and 10".  Flip the paper over and score at 5".  That is the basic shape of the card...told you it was easy!  I wanted to add some shape to the flap so I die cut the flap using Spellbinders' Labels Twenty.  Here is a shocker to you all so I hope you are sitting down while you read this next statement- I did not use any other die sets on this card.    I did not need to because the paper I used ( Kaisercraft's Chanteuse Collection) already has die cuts in the paper pad!  On one of the die cuts I stamped Quietfire's Happy Birthday and used a gold leafing pen along the edge.  A sheet of the corner flowers paper was cut to 4" square and mounted on green card stock.  This stack was mounted to the front.  A piece of the pink paper was die cut and applied to the flap.   
A piece of seam binding was cut and assembled onto the card back.  Brown patterned paper from the same pad was cut to size and assembled over the seam binding.  

The inside is more of this pretty paper- one was adhered to a green base and another was cut smaller and applied to a pink base.  The smaller cut paper had tape only applied to three sides so that a gift card could be inserted.

Hope you enjoyed this quick and sweet birthday gift card holder.  :)
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
