First folder of berry goodness

I promised to post some more gift card folders today using some scrumptious 'Berry Bliss' paper, so without any further waffle, here's the first one. The basic folder is made exactly the same as this one. The main colours in this paper are close to cocoa, purely pomegranate & pretty in pink. The stamped motif on the front & inserts is from 'Boho Backgrounds'. You'll see this image in most of the designs in the 'Berry Bliss' paper pack... I sooo love when Stampin' Up! does that!This pic shows more detail of the front. I stamped 2 images with purely pomegranate ink on very vanilla card & punched out parts of them with the 1 inch & 1 3/8 inch circle punches. Then, I added a pink rhinestone brad (from 'Fire' pack) & raised the images on a base of pomegranate, pretty in pink & close to cocoa squares & a 1 3/8 inch circle. I used another pink rhinestone brad to hold the purely pomegranate double stitched ribbon in place. I used pink brads (Soft Subtles® pack) on the inside & back of the folder.
