Instructions: My finished card size is 5” x 7”. Make card base using white cardstock and cover with a piece of sheet 12B from the paper collection. Set aside while you work on the rest of the card.
Cut out the shadow piece of the gate using a piece of Sheet 11B of the paper collection. Using a piece of the Luxe Silver Cardstock cut out the detailed piece of the gate. Adhere the Silver cardstock to the shadow piece gluing around the edges so the gate will open. Using white cardstock, cut out the Happy Birthday Sentiment from the Ironwork Sentiments dies and glue down so that when the gates open you can see the sentiment. Using dimensional tape adhere the gate and shadow piece to the card front.
Stamp the Magnolia blooms using Memento New Sprout ink and then add Archival Magenta Hue to give just a bit of color. Stamp the leaves with Archival Fern Green and color with Archival Leaf Green with bits of Magenta Hue in places just to give the leaves a different look. Using the coordinating dies cut out the petals and leaves. Lay the blooms and leaves onto the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Turn them out onto desk to dry. While they are still a bit damp, shape a bit more with the Flower Shaping Tools and pinch the tips together. Also twist one petal to make the center of the flowers. Once these are dry, they hold their shape. When dry I used Toffee Crunch to add a bit of color to the tip of the twisted part. I also cut off part of the twisted pieces so they don't stand up too far. Hot glue two petals together and then hot glue the center piece. Add glitter to the flowers and leaves and allow to dry.
Decide on flower placement on the card and hot glue to hold in place. The card is finished.
