Mod Flowers

 Along with the Ashby corner die from the cards I made yesterday, I also purchased the Mod Flower Border die and made a "Mod" card...am LOVING these Poppy dies!!...

This is what it looks like closed:
Layered the flower border twice...put black semi die cut border behind (did not cut it with metal plate, so it served as a background as well as a support for the white border), and then attached the green/white/black panels (all adhered together) onto the white card.Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
****EDITED****
I had numerous questions about what I meant by semi cut.  To help answer all those questions, I have a couple pics...
 For dies like this one, I always use my metal adaptor plate for all the fine details.  Wanting to semi-cut, for me, means not using the plate, which will not FULLY cut the flower images, and give me the ability to layer this piece behind my white, layered images.  The first pic I have run through my Big shot.  It has cut the flowers, but not cut the details enough for the pieces to fall out.  The second pic shows the edges removed from the die cut...one piece, a little more than 1/2 way down, I had to use scissors to cut the edge from the border's flowers...
I then used glossy accents on the BACK of THE WHITE layered piece and adhered black piece to the white, so there is not lots of glue all over the black flowers(because this will show through).  Hope this makes sense and helps a bit...sorry it has taken me so long to get this to you!!
