I was cruising around on Pinterest and found this beautiful card. I found the card on Patti Lee's site...
Great Job Patti!!

I copied the post right from Patti's site:

This pocket card is a past favorite card style - bring it back!!!! NOW fill it with flowers. I love how this turned out. Simple layering of the flower shapes makes this easy to make. Leave the flowers flat or they can be shaped with a bone folder. Flip up the pocket for an additional area to leave a message. Card size is 5-1/2" x 4-1/4".

With note card removed: message to be stamped later. 

Card front template:

Note Card measurements: 

Cut pieces: 

(1) 5-1/2" x 8-1/4" Rose Red CS, score as shown in above template
(1) 4" x 5-1/4" Rose Red DSP
(3) sets of flowers in Whisper White CS
(1) 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" note card in Whisper White CS (not shown in photo)
(5) leaves in a mixture of sizes for variety (not shown in photo)
(3) 3/3" Punched circles in Rose Red CS for flower centers. (not shown in photo)
Using a sponge dauber and Rose Red ink, ink the centers of each flower. 

Assembly: follow the green arrows

Use the wide oval punch as well as the large oval punch for punch out the leaves. Fold them in half, then put them through the crimper.

Here are the finished flowers and leaves:

Using the Big Shot, position the 4-1/2" x 5-1/4" paper into the Vintage Wallpaper in the folder for this great impression

Attach the Rose Red DSP 1/8" away from the edge, then fold the Rose Red DSP back (underneath). You may not wish to attach the DSP while the paper is flat. The fold lines will cause the paper to "buckle". Insert the white note card. Using the back of the card, cut off the excess. Your card should now look like this:
