Kanban Classic Butterflies pop out aperture card

I made this pop out A6 aperture card from Classic Butterflies section of the recent Kanban QVC TSV, presently on waitlist only. Individual elements from the TSV have not been released to retail, but they are available to purchase from Foil Play.
To make the card, I used the die cut & foiled A6 concept card (PCT9091) for the base card and elements from the butterfly, birdcage & floral and borders & sentiments topper sheets (PCT1596, PCT1597 and PCT1595) to embellish it.
I sliced off the header of the concept card sheet, then folded it in half to A5 size. The sheet isn't die cut all the way through the centre fold, just the middle section. The card folds so that the aperture pops out and (viewed from above, as in the picture below) there is a square section opening out in the middle. The card also folds flat for posting.

I secured the outer sections on each side of the card together with extra strong double sided tape and left the inner two sections (which form the square) free of adhesive. If you wished, you could decorate the insides of the square (which are white) with co-ordinating paper before applying adhesive.
