Double-width Pop 'n Cuts card

I wanted to have a go at making a wider Pop 'n Cuts card, so I could fit the word 'Birthday' on the central bit, in chipboard letters, so I put the Label insert in my base tray, pushed up to one edge.
 I lightly folded my paper in half, and with the folded edge just inside the outer edge of the label, ran it through the Big Shot. (With a bit of tape to keep it in place.) I wanted the back of the card to be taller than the base of the card, so my paper is more to the right-hand side here.
 I then had my inner piece to work with. After this picture, I managed to remove most of the fold lines, by going over the paper with a bone folder.
 I added some paper layers, Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, Rhonna Farrer alphabet stamped letters, and stars cut with Sizzix Originals 'Stars', and Movers and Shapers Star and Flower set.
The white embossed layer is hand cut.
I'll pop this in Simon Stays Stamp 'Anything Goes' Challenge, and Simon Says Stamp & Go 'Color' challenge - to use a colour medium, such as ink, pens, paint etc. They also asked us to share tips. I used Copic pens on the card - my tip is to use them to colour all sorts of things to get them just the right shade you want. The chipboard letters were originally light shimmery pink, so I used the Copics to get my chipboard, and also the brad to red.
