Pop-Out Card with Fancy Aperture

For once I used the aperture die whole, but as the focus of a pop-out card.  I used one of the matching stamps too.
Use a score board to ensure the alignment of the Floral Forest Aperture die is in the exact centre of the fold on a 5” x 5” black card blank.
Die cut and score at 2.5” from each short edge of the card and carefully fold into a concertina shape.

Cut a 5” strip from a piece of the Toffee Apple designer paper and fold it in half at 4”. Glue the paper into the inside of a second 5” x 5” black card blank ensuring the folds are lined up.
Stamp the #2 Floral Forest 3 way overlay stamp onto an off cut of the same paper in Onyx Black Versafine ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
4 Make a frame out of black card using the fourth and fifth square nested picot dies from the centre.
Create a mat using a coordinating piece of the Toffee Apple paper and the seventh square picot nesting die from the centre.
Add to the front of the card and choose two of Barbara’s word stickers to finish the front.

Cut the remaining piece of Toffee Apple paper into two (2 x 1.5” x 4.5”). Die cut the pieces using the same die and add them to either side of the pop-out section of card. Neaten the edges using narrow strips of black card trimmed at either end.
To finish add the pop-out inner to the main card ensuring the edges and corners line up exactly.
