I've Rejoined the Club: Let's Celebrate

I've recently renewed my annual memberships to the Clarity New Design Club.  I have been a member of the newest club (dies) since it started in January last year and in the stencil club since its inception too.  I was a late comer to the stamp club (#88 was my first), but have carried on since joining nearly five years ago.  Each month I receive a stamp, stencil and die with colour booklets containing two projects for each item.  There is also a Groovi club. For this pop out card, I used the last die of 2019, but came up with my own design.
Cut an aperture from the centre of a 4" x 4" card blank along the fold line.
Create a concertina fold by scoring down the centre of the front and the back of the card blank and along the centre fold line as shown.
Blend Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick Oxides onto a second card the same size using foam blending tools.
Using the fifth and sixth smallest nested square picot dies cut a frame out of black card.  Cut the 'Let's Celebrate' die again from the centre square.
Fussy cut the words from the frame.
Add the narrow frame around the aperture of the pop out section.
Add the lettering to the pop out, offsetting them slightly.
Glue the pop out section into the outer card.
To finish the inside of the card, use the small Alliums stamp in the same colour Oxides as before.
Use the fifth smallest nested square picot die to cut a white panel.  Add one of the larger Alliums stamps in Wilted Violet Oxide.
Add the smaller stamp in Shaded Lilac Oxide.
Finish with Worn Lipstick Oxide using first and second generation stamping.
Neaten up the inside of the aperture that the words were cut from.
Add it to the panel.
Stamp It's (Mini word chains 9&10) Your Birthday (Mini word chains 3&4) in Onyx Black Versafine ink and heat emboss with clear powder.
To finish, add the panel to the front of the card.
