Cut Concord Crush 5 1/2" x 7 3/4".  Score at 4 1/4" and 6 3/4" (this makes a flap that folds down over the front pocket).  Emboss just the front portion with the Square Lattice folder (if you fold down the flap, it will be the underside of the embossing, but it's okay.)  Emboss the gold cardstock (5 1/4" x 3 or longer) in the Texturz Folder.  Round the corners if you want.  Adhere gold to back of Concord Crush.  Use Sticky Strip #104294 to adhere front flap when folded up.  Decorate the front however you like.  The insert is Concord Crush cut at 4 3/4" x 4" and of course each successive layer is 1/4" smaller.  The tab is the Modern Label Punch folded in half and secured with a brad.  You could also use a tab of ribbon.
