A rainy day here (80% chance, but I did manage to get my swim in) ,  a good day to catch up on cards that need to be made for August birthdays.

Here I used my Silhouette Cameo, Sketch Pens and Lori Whitlock's 3D Flower Card. The base paper is from Basic Grey Fiction. Also used some flowers from my stash.
Lori has tutorials to show how to put the cards together on You Tube but I didn't find anything that shows how to cut on the Silhouette.

The pop-up flowers in the design were cut on regular colored copy paper (that I bought by mistake but kept) then I used a red Silhouette sketch pen for drawing the design on the cut pieces included.

The cut file includes the card which I cut the size that it came, (A2) it also comes with the 7 flowers that I un-grouped and placed 4 on a page, then I also un-grouped them to separate the sketch part from the cut part (I probably make more work than I need to but this works for me) To explain: I saved a file that has a card that is an A2 size, 4 flowers grouped for cut only, 4 flowers grouped (that fit together) for sketch only and interchanged them without removing the mat from the machine changing out the pen and cutting tool as needed.

I am not the best place to come to for directions but if I can help in any way leave a comment and I can try to find a way to explain it better.
