Double pop up idea

It is Swap ideas on CCEE Stampers challenge day. We were asked to make a card using a technique you've learned and want to share.  Either describe the details of the technique or link to a tutorial on the web.

With so many dies out there I thought I would share the way I have combined two pop up dies created by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I am a great fan of the Lorna label pop up die whether it is as a single platform or a double pop up.
I thought if I like the double pop up why not use the Happy Birthday pop up die and the Lorna Label pop up die together. I may even try this with the new Merry Christmas pop up die.
 Here is what I did after die cutting the Happy Birthday die, I removed the die and while the card was still lined up on my big shot platform plates I lined up the Lorna Label lining up the nubs on the fold. I then lined up the top plate so that it just cut out the bottom part of the Lorna label and not the box part as it over lapped the area already cut from the Happy Birthday die.

I then decorated each panel with more dies and stamps, before attaching the pop up panel to the base card.

Adding the white parts to the pop up was as simple as die cutting them again and fussy cutting them and attaching.

For the front of the card I have used a sizzix die and .... with the inlaid die technique that I learnt earlier this year.
