Shape Up for SUO Challenges

This next card was designed for the weekly challenge at SUO Challenges found HERE.   The challenge is to create a card that has a shape other than rectangle or square.....I hope multiple rectangles are acceptable!  The inspiration for my card came from my favorite SVG cutting file website, Birdscards.  I took the idea of her gift box card and made each "box" into a pocket card. The card does not open like normal cards but each box lid lifts up and pulls out a piece of cardstock that can have a sent image stamped on it or a gift card attached to it.  The card is not a typical A2 size and I will have to make a custom envelope for it, the size is 4 3/4" x 7 1/2".  Hope you like it and any feedback you may have, on how to improve the design, I would appreciate hearing! 

I was just thinking.... it would be fun to stamp something on the top insert like balloons and confetti.  Or if the gift card is given to buy something specific, maybe a stamp of the intended a kitten stamp and a Visa gift card to be used to pay for the adoption of a new kitty!
