Gatefold Borders


For the gatefold part of this 9" x 6" card, cut a piece of A4 white card to 8" x 9" and score at 1" on either side of the 8" side. Fold and burnish with a bone folder. Cut one piece of white card to 9" x 6" for the base.

Tape two dies together, a decorative border and a plain border, from the Curvy Decorative Border Die Set. Mark the middle of the 8" side of the scored card, top and bottom with a pencil. Adhere the dies with low tack tape to these marks. Start with the plain curvy die, then a decorative die. Run through a die cutting machine. You should now have two pieces of white card, one decorative, one plain curvy.

Repeat for the left side, (plain curvy) of the gatefold, by taping the floral curvy die to the curvy edge of the card, followed by the circle curvy die. Run through a die cutting machine. The two pieces should match up. Cut a piece of green paper from the Friendship Rose paper pad to 9" x 6". Adhere the green card to the gatefold pieces, by gluing the folded edges to the rear. Glue the 9" x 6" piece of white card to the back to neaten. You now have a gatefold card.

To decorate, cut a floral roses paper to 4" x 9". Mark the middle with a pencil, top and bottom, die cut down the middle with the plain Curvy Borders edge die. Trim to fit. Adhere to both sides of the card. Die cut another Curvy Decorative Border in white card, adhere on top of the pretty Roses paper, matching the curvy line.

Die cut four hearts from the Decorative Heart Die Set in white card. Die cut one in green paper from the paper pad. Die cut the fancy heart in white card. Adhere the fancy heart to the green heart, adhere to the front left side of the card. Cover the back of the heart with a white heart to neaten the back.

Stamp a sentiment from the Friendship Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Ranger Archival Jet Black ink onto white card. Die cut with the Decorative Heart Die. Adhere to the right side of card at a slight angle. Line up and cut off the excess of a white heart for the reverse side, adhere the heart to neaten the back.

Stamp and color four sets of Classic Roses and Leaf sets, in Ranger Archival Light House ink and Memento New Sprout ink, onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Color with the same inks. Die cut with the matching dies. Place in the Classic Rose Flower Shaping Mold, lightly spritz with water and run through a die cutting machine. Tap out and lightly ink the edges of the leaves in Light House ink.

Gently twist the tips of all the petals of the Roses with your fingers or the tips of a pair of tweezers. Pierce a hole in the middles, thread white stamens from the Pastel Bead Stamens - Medium, through two layers of petals. Off set the petals as you go and glue into place. Make one extra-large, two large and two medium Roses. Adhere the Roses to the heart with hot glue. Adhere the leaves with hot glue. Sponge Designer Dries Clear Adhesive to the flowers, leaves and pretty border. Sprinkle with clear glitter. All done.

Top Tip: Stamp the Roses out first onto white card, so that you can see all the size differences.
