Instructions: The finished card measure 5 x 7". For the base of your card choose a 5 x 7" Gateway Fold Card – White. With the Teardrop Lattice Gateway, diecut 2 pieces of paper #6B with the biggest die and one from the paper #1B. Ink the edge of all the paper with the French ultramarine ink and a dauber. Glue on the card base. Cut a gateway from the Teardrop Lattice Gateway Die in the sheet #11B. Ink the edge with blue ink and glue on the front of the card. From the Lattice Flourish Gateway Die, die cut the Sentiment ‘Happy Birthday’ on white cardstock 6 times. Glue on each other. Ink in blue and in yellow and glue on the front of the card.
From the Eyelet Frame Gateway Die, cut 2 borders from 11B sheet (one larger than the other). Ink the edge in blue and glue on the 2 last panels. Die cut a piece from the Lattice Flourish Gateway Die from the same 11B sheet. Glue only the base and the edge on the last panel to make a little pocket to receive money or gift card you want to give as a gift.
Make flowers from the Wild Rose Collection. Stamp your flowers with French ultramarine ink onto white flower shaping paper, color the centre with yellow ink and shade the rest of the flower using ultramarine. Color the reverse of the flowers and diecut with the coordinate die. Place facedown into the flower shaping mold, spritz with water and run through the diecutting machine to shape. When dry, give further shape with Deluxe flower shaping kit tools. Put glue in the center of the flowers and add rock candy stamens and rose hip stamen dipped in the crystal powder. (I used 3 larges petals to make a flower.) I also do three smaller flowers.
Make tiny flowers in red and navy blue by using the French Cottage Collection and white stamens. Also do leaves from the Floral Shoppe collection and use the fern green ink. Glue your flowers on the front of the card and add leaves to fill the empty space. (Add cheesecloth and sewing thread under your flowers.)
To add the finishing touch, add tiny flowers on the last page of the card.
