Instructions: Using the gateway fold ready to use card base. The size: 5 inches x 7 inches. Ink the outer edges of this card base using the Tea Rose ink and inking tools.

Taking the white cardstock and the outer frame from the die set Elegant Swirl Gateway, die cut a frame. Taking the inner frame with the doted holes in it, die cut this four times and adhere the four layers together. From one of the off cuts from the frame just cut, stamp the sentiment “Thinking Of You Today” from the Sentiments set. Making the sentiment banners by stamping the “You’re An Amazing Friend” then trim the points as shown. This is stamped in Sepia ink. Colour the sentiment with the archival inks and use the Tea Rose for the edges.

Using the frames and the paper from the sheet 12B and 5A die cut the rest of the cuts needed for the card. Adhere all the die cuts in place including the previous frames made.

To make the Dahlias and leaves: The stamping is done with the Library Green ink, the colour used for the leaves is the Leaf Green ink and the colours Saffron and Tea Rose for the Dahlias. Bring shape to the Dahlias and leaves using the matching molds and the shaping tools. Pinch or pleat the ends of the petals to make them look more like a Dahlia petal. The petal ends and the leaves are finished with glitter, apply clear drying glue then dip into the glitter, put aside to dry before using. The Dahlias have two petal layers, the centres are filled first with clear drying glue then the prills.

Cluster the Dahlias and leaves to the front of the card and adhere in place. Adhere the sentiment banner across the card front. Adhere the sentiment banner across the foot of the frame in the second card section. Adhere a Dahlia to the right of the sentiment on the third section of the gateway card. Add leaves as needed to finish. Take note this Dahlia will pop out of the card when the card is closed and will not lay flat but it is adorable when standing.
