Happy Birthday - Napkin fold card!

Hello Friends,

2nd post of the day!

Special fold cards always inspire me to try them . Tri-shutter was the first one and now this. Here I would like to share the Napkin Fold card which I made for a friends birthday. My better half and me were in a dilemma about what to gift our friend and my husband finally suggested - handmade it should be!
So the search for the proper card type began and after surfing the net for Special Fold Cards, I came upon this. Its quite simple but when layered with beautiful coordinating and contrasting colors , it looks almost magical. Also since it was supposed to be made for a guy we kept the colors and shape to be - blue and geometric. So nothing explicit but totally masculine!

I have used pearls here to embellish the corners and some pretty patterned paper to cover the cross sections.The center part has a background image stamped in it which reads Happy Birthday. I have added 2 corners to it too.

The card is held together with a band which has a sentiment written on it - Happy Birthday. It is tied together with a flurry of colorful ribbons. Our friend really liked it :)

Hope you had a good time going through the pics.
