Here’s how I made it:
To start I took a square piece of Lovely Lipstick Cardstock (14.6cm x 14.6cm) and scored at 7.3cm. I then rotated this 90 degrees and scored again at 7.3cm.
I then aligned the card diagonally and scored corner to corner.
Folding this in half along the diagonal scoreline and then folding along the horizontal scoreline in the opposite direction. I then Burnished these with a Bone Folder.
I then took 2 pieces of Lily Impressions DSP measuring 7cm x 7cm. I aligned them diagonally and cut corner to corner.
I adhered these cut triangles to the triangular sections of the Lovely Lipstick Card, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I then adhered the remaining 2 pieces of 7cm x 7cm DSP to the square sections of the Lovely Lipstick Card.
Taking a 6.4cm x 6.4cm piece of Shimmery White Cardstock, I used the Detailed Trio Punch to punch 2 opposite corners with the floral punch and then the rounded corner punch.
I then adhered this to the bottom square, using multipurpose liquid glue.
I placed a scrap piece of Shimmery White Cardstock on the Stamparatus. Using the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set I stamped the Lily in Lovely Lipstick and the Lily Pad in Granny Apple Green.
Using the Lily Pad Dies I cut out these images using the Big Shot.
I adhered these images to the top square section of the original card.
Taking a 10cm x 14.35cm piece of Shimmery White Cardstock and a 3.8cm x 14.35cm piece of Lily Immersions DSP. I adhered the DSP to the bottom of the Shimmery White Card.
I then aligned this on the Stamparatus. Using the So Sentimental Stamp Set I aligned and stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock.
To finish this card front I again used the Detailed Trio Punch to punch the top 2 corners with the floral and rounded corners punch.
Taking a 14.85cm x 21cm (scored at 10.5cm) piece of Lovely Lipstick Cardstock. I folded this along the scoreline and burnished it with a Bone Folder. I then adhered the card front to this, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This created the outer card.
Taking the Folded card, I applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the bottom square section.
I aligned and adhered this to the bottom of the outer card in the centre.
I opened this up to make sure it was straight and properly aligned.
Tip: Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue makes slight adjustments easier to make.
Folding this closed I then applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the top square section.
Finally I closed the top of the outer card to adhere the folded card to it.
