For the base : Use a 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 , score and fold along the 8 1/2 side
of cream colored card stock and placed the folded side just below where the top of my card would be and cut it out using just the #6 die, as shown in photo. Glue the back of front panel to the front of folded base.
Here is a view of the side
I used pop-dots under the top panel and flowers.
This last card is a card I made earlier this year and in this one, using die #6 for the base. In this sample the base is glued to the front along top lacy portion, leaving a open lacy border. Cut two and emboss. I did a score line just under the lacy top border ( so you can open the card) on one of them and glued just the top lace parts together. The front of the card was made using a piece of MME DP and die #5 cut and embossed it. Using very vanilla CS cut and emboss #3 and #4. I then sponged a little memento ink and attached my cut out images.
