Here's the card I created using patterned paper (PP1030 Joyful Bloom) and a hello die from Dare 2 B Artzy combined with a Twist n Pop kit in Orange fizz from The Paper Cut.

I used this patterned paper (both sides).  The orange in the plaid pattern was a perfect match to the orange fizz twist n pop kit.  The reverse side has lots of large flowers, which i cut around for the focal point on the front of the card, then I fussy cut the flower heads on 4 other patterns from the reverse side to put on the pop up on the inside as shown below, fussy cut around an entire flower for the top inside and as a final touch, die cut the word hello out of the plaid pattern.
