Floral Flaps Valentine

I had gotten the pretty Papertrey Ink Floral Flaps dies over a month ago, and am finally getting around to putting them on a card.  I used two flaps, layered three times and filled with color...
This card is a 4 1/4" square card.  I have taken some pics to show you how I did this...
 Three flaps each for layering, trimmed, making sure the bottom two are trimmed a bit more than the top one, so you don't see the bottom layers.

 Adhere together

 Die cut the three colors for filling in

 to make it easy to poke the pieces through to the white, poke out two of the unneeded pieces to be able to line up the colored with the white.

 After putting all the colored pieces in, turn over.

 I used 1/16" pop up squares and attached to the back of wherever there was a colored piece.

 This is what it will look like when you turn it right side up

Attach to die cut 4" square panel

This is what it will look like when right side up...then stamp the sentiment and attach to card.  I stamped the sentiment on separate piece of paper, and lined it up to the colored flaps panel, THEN attached the WHOLE thing to the card.  Hope this all makes sense:)!! This design could suit any right fitting sentiment...
(I added this pic after I had made this post, just to show you another option:)!)
 Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  2. LOVE! I think it looks especially nice with the layered look combining partial in-laids. Lots of depth and the bits of color is fantastic.

  3. Lisa, I love this card and I love even more that you have shown us the steps you took. I love using the bits in colour within a die cut but they sure can be fiddly. Never thought to try as you have done. Off to give it a go. Thanks again
