Step 1 Using the Foldout cards in black fold all of the score lines and fold the card as you normally would with the two smaller panels on the outside.
Step 2 Turn and put those two smaller panels on the inside of the card to create pockets on the inside of the card. This now gives you a full area on the front of the card to add more details and embellishments.
TOP TIP You can keep these two smaller panels attached, but I found the card did not close tightly so I just trimmed both panels off and then into two pockets and used the border basics dies to cut my papers to size. Here is what the inside of the cards now look like.
Step 3 Cut the borders out of black card stock and attach them to the front and inside as shown, then adhere your pockets on the inside. Be sure to check first if any trimming on the edges need to be done to have a clean and crisp fit. Here is what the front of the cards now look like, with the smaller pockets folded on the inside in the above photo.
Step 4 Cut and stamp out the sunflowers, classic rose leaves and the botanic windows. Watch this video HERE to learn how to easily to shape the sunflowers.
Step 5 Mold and shape your leaves and flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Add detail to your flowers with the Crystal Clear and Frosting powders. Add ribbon, trinket pins and gold thread to add some more details and voila, you now have a fun new way to use these fold out cards.
Have lots of fun making some of these for your friends and family, add messages, photos, gift cards even money into the pockets to make someone's day!
