Instructions: The ready gatefold card measures 6” x 7”. Take a smooth white cardstock measuring 12” x 7” and score at 3” and 9” on the longer side. Crease the score lines to form a gatefold card base. Now choose patterned paper from the coordinating paper collection and cut all front and inside panels, 1/4” smaller than the card panels. Distress the edges using distress inks and paste them using an adhesive that dries clear.
For the flowers, images are stamped with archival ink Plum and colored using Tea Rose and Magenta Hue. The leaves are stamped using Library green ink and painted using Olive and Fern Green. To shape the flowers and leaves, follow Emma Lou's video.
For the front panel, diecut 2 Botanic Window Frames and adhere together for a sturdier piece and distress using Rusty Hinge ink. Apply adhesive that dries clear and sprinkle Frosting Powder. Heat set if you require the frosty look. The inside panel of the window is cut using gray patterned paper and layered in the center using foam tape.
The wedding couple and wedding bells are stamped with black archival ink and colored using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. Both the images are layered using foam tapes.
