Fun Flowers Gatefold Birthday


What have you been doing today?  I've been having some fun at my card class with some fun flowers today with a lovely bunch of ladies. 

This is one of the cards that we made.  A Chocolate Chip base with one side of the gate embossed with Perfect Polka Dots.  The other side had a mat layer of Peach Parfait and a Whisper White strip which was stamped with Fresh Vintage.  The stamps were stamped off on some scrap first to give a softer look in Pool Party and Lucky Limeade.  

Onto the bloom itself.  This was made using the Fun Flowers Bigz Die. Two layers of Peach Parfait embossed with Perfect Polka Dots and two layers of Designer Series Paper from Everyday Enchantment.  (free as part of Sale-A-Bration) I think I have been enchanted because I've almost used this paper everyday! Lol. 

A Lucky Limeade Printed Brad was added to the centre.  Some sizzlits in Swirls Scribbles give a Lucky Limeade flourish.  The flower was attached to one side of the gate and a plain version of the large layer of the flower was added to the inside and back of the flower.  This gave a neater finish to the inside.  

I've made my card a Happy Birthday, you can just see the sentiment from Happiest Birthday Wishes, peeking from inside but this also makes a lovely Mother's Day card. 

The other card we made, which you can see here, I'm delighted to say it was choosen to be featured at Freshly Made Sketches.  I'm so pleased. 

Thanks for dropping in by. x

Gorgeous card Aileen - we don't see enough gatefold cards and that's a pity as they always look so special. Love the colour scheme and the fab flower.
