Business Card Holders

I searched the net trying to find a template for a cute business card holder and came up empty handed. So what did I do? I created my own business card holder. I used the concept of an easel card and added my own personal touches to it. I'm thinking about creating a tutorial for creating these. Anyone interested?
The paper piecing is created from the Fairy Bears Collection at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.
