Add double sided tape to the right half of the topper layer on the back.
Close the card base and attach the topper layer to the inside zig zag card, as if the square was going back on the front of the card base.

Layer five:
Using a sentiment die, cut the matt layer from the second coloured card.
Cut the sentiment out of white card.
Matt and layer together and attach to the left corner of the topper using a small foam pad.
The sentiment will work as a stopper when opening the card up.
