Instructions: Card size is 6 1/4" X 6".  Fold the insert (6 1/4" X 13") and make a 3/4" score at the top of the large back panel then add a  5 1/2" X 6 1/4" piece of white card stock to the score to make a back for the card so that it stands up-right. Cut paper from the Young At Heart designer paper to fit each layer and glue in place then glue the front, shorter fold up to make a pocket in front for a large tag.

Cut two borders out of the designer paper from the Delicate Borders die, one from the Border Essentials and one from the Ornate Borders and Pockets die (for the tag).  Glue the borders on and cover edges of the two Delicate Borders with some pretty ribbon, tie a bow and glue it to the top left back panel. 

Stamp, die cut and color the Window Box Fillers, the car, plane, happy birthday banner, greenery, and palm trees. I stamped these all on white cardstock using black ink. I used Copic markers for everything except the flowers and greenery, I sponged them with Cantaloupe, with Summer Sky and New Sprout Memento Inks. I stamped and die cut an extra propeller for the airplane and popped it up. My flowers were formed and filled, blue with Prills and Cantaloupe with Stickles for centers.  I used some "tiger eye" baubles as fillers with my flowers. The car and plane and popped up with foam tape. 

For my tag, I stamped the sentiment with teal onto designer paper and cut it with the Large Oval Die and the mat with the Small Ovals. I cut a rectangle 4" X 3 1/8" for my tag and made a coordinating second layer for it and then glued the Ornate Border to the top, glued the ovals on at an angle and then glued my flower spray at the top.
