Oriental inspired card

I've had these oriental papers in my stash for ages now and I've just never known quite what to dothem. They are gorgeous weight and fabulously pearlised but the whole oriental thing doesn't do it for me.
So I tried this little card with latch closing - it's ideal for holding a gift card, voucher or just cash. Basically the card is half a folded 12 by 12 with a second piece of 11 by 7.5 with a 1.5 inch turn up layered inside. I used 2 brads to secure the turn up pieces. The front of the card is a layered panel that is adhered on 3 sides only leaving the right hand edge open for the paper "latch"to slot into.
The embellishments and stickers are all taken from the PM oriental designer collection.
