I've been wanting to make this "Star Effects Standup Card" and thought the Postcard Perfect paper would be.... PERFECT!  You can use any sentiment,  I thought "count your blessings" was from the Flower Market stamp set, - but it's retired (D1705) I found I had "Love" (D1728) so added that also and updated this post!    
I'm enjoying a weekend with friends on a beach near Seabrook, WA.  I took off work for a 4 day weekend,  packed the Postcard Perfect papers, ink and some stamps... and then found that I left some supplies at home - over four hours away.   1) forgot the stamp set so fussy cut the flowers  and 2) added a touch of gold with the Shimmer Brush. (didn't have sequins or sparkles.) 
Here's a tutorial for the Star Card.
The base (black card stock) was cut at 5 X 6 - folded in 1/2 and then cut from the fold to the outside edge into a triangular base.
Slits to hold the insert were cut at 2 inches from the bottom corner and cut 3/4 inches deep (I made a small wedge).
Keep the two Triangles pieces that were cut from the 5X6 paper and decorate them with patterned paper triangles cut from a 4 3/4 X 5 3/4 rectangle cut in 1/2 the shorter width and then cut into 4 triangles, and decorate. These pieces are then glued into a "V" - see the photo. decorate as desired.
This card is mailed flat and will need instructions to set it up once opened. 
You can write a personal message on the back.
