Return of the gift card folder

Helloooo again & hope you're having a happy weekend. I'm back with another project from my open house. Regular visitors will probably remember I Iove making gift card folders with patterned paper. Well, I hadn't made one for a while, so made this one, with a free class voucher inside as a lucky door prize.
The folder was made with a sheet of Haiku DS paper – I really love the colours & patterns in this pack. I decorated the front & card inserts with 'Trendy Trees' (one of my must have sets from the catalogue) in close to cocoa, so saffron, pumpkin pie & old olive inks.
This is definitely a set that I'd recommend using a stamp-a-ma-jig with, so you can easily line up the various trunks & tree tops in the set. The greeting is actually part of a baby one from 'Best Yet' (can you see this set is getting plenty of use), but I just inked up the "a little something" part with my old olive marker. The scrumptious ribbon is kiwi/vanilla satin.
Inside the folder, I made 2 card inserts with old olive & tangerine tango & vanilla card – one to write on & one to hold a gift card.I was really happy with how this one turned out. It's always fun to see how the two sides of the paper work together. You can see more of my gift folders here.
I probably won't have time to post tomorrow, as we'll be at a dance competition with Cara, but I'll see how it all goes.
