Gift card holder in Fifth Avenue florals

We had a fun night on Tuesday night at Alicia's house - Alicia had us make this gorgeous gift card holder.
It opens like a little purse with a concertina double pocket inside.
It is basically a small folded card with a belly band covered in embellished flowers.
I really enjoyed making it. Even though I did end up finishing the belly band and inserts this morning in day light.
What do you think?
Each centre of the flowers has a rhinestone on it and the colours are:
 Kiwi kiss, not quite Navy and Baja Breeze with whisper white.
When you open it you see the tabs for two cards that fit neatly into the envelope "pockets".
One is for your message (mine just says "for you" at this stage) and the second tab is to place a gift card or voucher into. They would be just the right size for a movie ticket, gift card, folded notes, or a gift voucher from Stamping Joy!!!
That's my business card slipped in between the flower and the slit punch holes...
Iit could be anything you like - I am thinking Christmas gift vouchers for my nieces and nephews.
The photo above shows you a side view of the cut envelope,  that creates your two pockets... Alicia recommends you use a good quality envelope instead of a business style one with the blue lining and I tend to agree ... but if that's all you have then they work just fine.

Cardstock: kiwi kiss, whisper white.
Designer series patterned paper: Stampin up - Urban garden.
