Instructions: Cut a piece of Creme cardstock at 7 1/2 x 8 1/2" and score the 8 1/2" side at 7 1/2" and 7 3/4". Now glue the 7 1/2" part on the end of the 8 1/2-inch part, so you have a spine now of 1/4 inch. Cut a piece of Cream cardstock at 5 3/4 x 7" score on the long side at 1/2 inch. Open up your card so the closed side is up and place this on the top on the inside, just glue the 1/2 inch flap down, now you have a fold out flap. Take a magnet and place 1 on the upper inside on the right side, put the other half on the inside of the flap on the left side.Cut 3 pieces from the paper Collection at 7 1/4 x 5 1/4" and glue 2 of them inside and 1 on the front, take a piece of cream cardstock and cut it at 5 1/2 x 3 1/2". Put glue on the 2 sides and the bottom and glue it down on the bottom part inside the card. Take a circle punch and make a 1/2 hole in it, now you have a pocket. Take a fine liner and make little stitch marks on all 4 sides of the pocket. Cut a button strip out from the paper collection and cut it at 5 1/2 inch and glue this on the pocket. Take the arrow from the Hand Stitched set and stamp it with the Tuxedo Black on the cream cardstock, now stamp Happy Birthday on it and cut it out with the connected die. Ink the edges with Teal Zeal, now put 3D foam pads on the back and place them on a piece of pattern paper. Cut with a scissor around the arrow so now you have a mat and you can place it on the bottom of the pocket too.

Cut out some of the bigger images and mat them on the blue cardstock and place them in that pocket you just made. This time I die cut out a lot of buttons from the paper collection so that they fit and match all the colors. Glue 3 Buttons with Foam tape above the button strip, now your bottom part is done. For the upper inside part you have the flap so you can cut 2 pieces of pattern paper at 5 x 6 3/4" and glue that on the in and outside of the flap. For the outside cut a strip of 4 inches from the pattern paper with the buttons and fold it double. Attach it on the front and the inside so you have a pull tab. Cut out a button from the paper and put a 3Dfoam behind it and place it on the front of the flap on the end of the pull tab. Cut also a strip from the paper with a special hug for you and glue it on the front of the flap. For the inside of the flap, just cut a piece of pattern paper 5 x 5 inches, make a mark at 1/2 inch on the bottom left side and cut it from the right upper corner to the mark of the 1/2 inch. Put glue on the right and bottom piece and place it on the inside of the flap, now you have a pocket, cut some labels and an image and mat them and put them in the pocket. Take also a button from the paper and pop it up and place it on the bottom corner of the pocket!

For the front of the card you have to take the pattern paper with the zigzag stripes and cut it at 5 1/4 x 7 1/4" with the stripes up. Ink the edges with teal Zeal and stick it down, make some stitch marks all the way round with a black fine liner. Cut a strip of design paper at 7 1/4 x 1 inch, ink the edges and glue it down off centered. Take the biggest die from the Hand Stitched Accents die and cut it out of cream cardstock, now mat it on a piece of pink cardstock and glue it down on the front of the card. Take the stamp from the Hand Stitches Accent set and stamp it with Teal Zeal on the cream cardstock, cut it out with the connected die. Color the leaves with the blender tool and Bamboo Leaves and color the flowers with Cactus Flower, glue it on top of the card. Cut out 2 zig zag strips from the paper with the zigzag die and place them on the bottom of the card, put 2 tiny buttons on the ends.

Take your Lush Lilac stamp and stamp a few Lilacs using Rhubarb Stalk ink, color them with Cactus Flower and cut them out with the coordinating die. Place them upside down in the 3D mold and spray them lightly with water, put the lid on and run them through the machine. Now you can glue the lilacs on top of the stamped flowers and place a silver pearl in the center of each flower.
