Instructions: Card size: 5 x 6 1/2". Fold is at the top; place die on folded cardstock so that die over-hangs the top fold by at least 1/2". Using the outer die again, cut a full front and glue it to folded card. Cut 2 pieces of very light decorative paper using the outer die again (1 is for the inside). Stamp the decorative paper (1 piece) with sentiment using Deep Purple then glue onto front and the other piece inside. Sponge the edges of card with Deep Purple.

Cut the decorative part of Gateway out of silver also cut the Happy Birthday Ironworks sentiment out of silver as well. Glue the sentiment inside of card and the Gateway on the front (be sure to clean off any glue so that the silver stays nice and shiny). Cut the center of Gateway at the top and bottom so that it can open.

Stamp 2 Magnolia Bud branches, the birds/nest and the planter with tree stem using black, die cut all and color. Glue stem of bud branch onto stem of planter then cut any excess off stems. Use pop-ups to adhere the planter and branches. Glue the nest in branch on top then glue little birds.

Stamp Magnolias (small) using Rose Madder then die cut and sponge backs. Stamp small leaves using Fern Green, die cut then sponge front and back. Shape flowers and leaves in the mold. Glue 2 blossoms together for each flower (or more if you like). Pierce the centers and insert stamen (dyed with Deep Purple). Glue 3 flowers and a few leaves to the bottom left corner so that gate can still open.

Glitter using Crystal Clear, flowers top and bottom, wipe glitter off of silver where it clings. Mix shimmer with lacquer then paint the leaves.
