5.5 x 7 inch Center Gatefold Card. For the card base, cut a piece of white cardstock to 7 x 11 inches and score at 2.75 inches from both ends. Ink the 3 outside edges of the 2 front panels with forest moss and vintage photo Distress inks. Do not ink the folds. Cut 2 panels from the Prima Adore DP to be 2-5/8 x 6.75 inches each. Distress the 3 sides of each panel that are not the edge which will go next to the card fold. Ink the distressed edges with vintage photo. Punch a ribbon slot in each panel and thread the ribbon through leaving plenty of length for tying. Adhere the panels to the card, lining up adjacent to the card folds. Hand doodle some faux stitching around the panel with a brown micron pen. Stamp the Bird Haven Birdhouse With Flowers twice on white cs and the single birdhouse 3 times. Color with Copics, but only the flowers on the second big birdhouse image. Glue the full colored image to another piece of white cardstock if you do not want the ‘bleed through’ of the Copics to show when the Gatefold card is opened. Hand cut the image out leaving a little border. Sponge the border with tea dye Distress ink. Hand cut the flower section out of the other image. Shape the foliage and pop dot in place. Die cut the 2 single birdhouses using the matching Garden Romance Die and pop dot both in place varying the depth from the flowers. Adhere the finished image to right panel of the card overlapping the opening a bit. Stamp the verse and Twining Rosed on white cs. Cut into rectangle and use a corner rounder punch. Color the flowers with Copics and sponge tea dye ink all over the tag. Adhere only to the left panel of the card. Stamp 2 Butterflies from the Brookside Manor set and die cut each. Color and adhere the butterfly bodies to the card, shaping the wings. Tie your ribbon to keep the gatefold closed for mailing or gift giving.
