Tilda and Penny Black

Hi all I have a couple of cards to show you that I am entering into some challenges
This first card I am entering into the following challenges:
I have used one of my new Penny Black Slapstick stamps and coloured the image with Copics.  I actually stamped the image twice cut them both out and 3d'd them with silicone glue.  The papers are Bearlymine, I added the ribbon, buttons, flowers, butterflies and a computer generated sentiment.
Now my next card is a little different, I have called it a Twin, Side Opening Easel Card.  I was inspired to create this while watching a craft programme, I like to have either the TV or Stereo on while crafting and on this occasion I had the TV on, I was busy working away when I looked up and saw the almost finished product and thought that I could work it out and do one for myself.
The first picture shows how the card looks when closed.
The next pictures show it when opened. 

The flowers are handmade with Mulberry paper that has fine gold threads running through it and is about the same thickness as tissue paper. 
This image of Tilda I have used for the very first time, I won this stamp way back last year. 
I used a red card base, I also used Bazzill embossed card stock and Parchment 200gr card.
The papers behind the flowers are Bearlymine, I coloured Tilda with Copics cut her out and 3d'd her, the doily heart I recently bought from Joanna Sheen.  I punched out a couple of hearts and adhered some small red crystal hearts to the tops.  I also added pearls and some red Organza and silk ribbon.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

I love to follow tutorials but have never done one myself, if you would like me to do a picture step by step of how to make this Twin, Side Opening Easel Card then please let me know.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit, see you soon.  Hugs.

Gorgeous cards. The pleated ribbon on the first is great and I love the DP.
My favourite though is the second. I love the shape, the image is beautifully coloured and the black flowers are fab. I recently saw one of these cards and thought I could work out how to make one, but if you are willing to make a tutorial, even better as I won't have to think!
