In this tutorial the name Seal is referring to the use of the new Stampin Seal

Fold Misty Moonlight Cardstock (CS) in half at 5½"
With the other score line up facing you, fold it back to the left.   
This will be the front of your card
Seal the Designer Series Paper (DSP) 4" x 2½" to the front flap
Seal the 5¼" x 4" DSP to the inside
Run your Very Vanilla rectangle piece thru the Big Shot 
using the 4th largest Rectangle Stitches Framelits Die
Seal the Misty Moonlight ribbon on the Night of Navy ribbon 
then lay it across the Very Vanilla rectangle piece 
wrap the ends around the card and seal both sides on the back.
Stamp the three flowerpots with Misty Moonlight Ink.
Run them thru the Bigshot using the Boho Indio Dies.
Add dimensionals to the top and bottom and add them over the ribbon.
Use the Light Magenta Madness and color the paper flowers. 
Set them aside as they need a little drying time.

Fold the Misty Moonlight CS similar to the front piece, 
folding at 5½" then fold it back. 
Then turn it upside down, so the folds are underneath.
Lay the Misty Moonlight piece flat with the rectangle on the left 
seal the Very Vanilla flowerpot piece you just made to the rectangle.

Stamp your greeting with Misty Moonlight Ink 
on the 2½"Width x 2⅝"Height Very Vanilla CS.
With the Misty Moonlight piece still flat 
add the DSP piece to the center section and 
the Very Vanilla greeting piece to the last section. 
Those last 2 pieces are not square, 
so make sure the cardstock border is even on all sides.
 Lay the flowerpot panel face up 
on top of the Very Vanilla front panel also face up
with the flowerpot panel CENTERED (side to side and top to bottom)
The right greeting piece and half of the rectangle 
will get sealed to the card in this position. 
Fold the right greeting piece to the left, add seal to the back of the cardstock
then making sure it is still Centered, press it lightly into place.
Turn the card upside down, fold back the unattached piece
 Add Stampin Seal to the Misty Moonlight CS, 
making sure it is centered top to bottom then lightly lay the flap down
Turn it over and if all looks well, press it in place

To embellish the card, roll a glue dot in your fingers to make it small, 
add to the top of a flowerpot then add your colored paper flower. 
Repeat the process for the other two flowers. 

Here is the finished card closed and opened
