Instructions: The finished tent fold card is 21 cm x 14.4 cm. Note: all the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder. From cardstock cut 21 cm x 28.8 cm. Score this to make a tent fold card base. Taking from the Cut Mat Create die set the die size, 3.75" x 4.75”, use this to cut x 4 from the card stock. Before adhering all together, first stamp the gateway image and the sentiment with the aid of the stamp positioner on one of the die cuts. Color the image with the pencils. Now adhere together to form chipboard, using the brayer to secure the gluing. Die cut the fancy cut boarder with the card stock. Trim to fit the chipboard then apply crystal lacquer, put aside to dry. When this is dry, apply a little Violet color to the die cut. Find the design paper in the paper collection, cut this to 13.9 cm x 20. 4 cm. With the prick pen tool poke holes for the embroidery. Backstitch with the gold thread. Taking the mask and gesso, apply the gesso with the medium tool. Put aside to dry. When the gesso has air dried, draw around the raised gesso shape with the Violet and Leaf Green pencils. Apply water with the brush to spread and blend the color over the gesso. Put aside again to air dry. When this is dry, distress the edges with the aid of the distressing tool.

While you are waiting for the mediums to dry, use the time to stamp, die cut, color and shape the embellishments. The list: The flowers: Rose x 1. Rose buds 1 x large, 3 x small. Rose leaves x 2. The vines: 1 x vine leaf boarder. 3 x small sized grapes, 3 x small sized vine leaf clusters. The order of placement: Begin by adhering the design paper card front to the card base with foam tape or double dots. Adhere the fancy cut boarder to the back of the Cut Mat Create chipboard with wet glue, the wet glue allows you the time to slide the boarder so you can get it aligned correctly. Now, adhere this completed chipboard to the card front. The remaining embellishments are adhered with wet glue also. 3d foam is used where needed to bring the dimension and height to the arrangement. In order as follows, the roes and rose leaves on the right side. Going to the left side of the card, the vine leaf boarder, the small grapes and vine leaf clusters and the small rose buds. Going back to the right side, apply the vine leaf clusters and the grapes. When all the glue is dry and the embellishments are secure, finish the roses petals off with a little sparkle and bling using stickles.
