I created a card using the Ornate Flourish Gateway die. It is just one of the designs from the Elegant Gateway Dies and Accents series. I adhered my die cuts onto a 5x7 Gateway Fold card. I did cut off the last end of the trifold so that I was just left with a card that opens once. I will save the extra arch for another project. But you could adorn all 3 parts of the folds. It is a versatile card.
This is a closeup of the sentiment that I used. I love the Wild Rose paper collection. There are so many tags, card fronts, and sentiments to choose from. So many ways you can use all of the cutouts. I created a Birthday Card for this project.
On the inside of the card, I adhered a few of the flowers that I die cut from the designer papers in the collection. I left the middle blank, to add a note, wishes, or a Heartfelt Creations stamp.
Here is a closeup of the cluster of flowers and leaves I created to adorn the cover of the card. I absolutely love that one of the sheets of paper in the 12x12 Wild Rose Collection pack, has flowers and leaves that all you have to do is use your Wild Rose dies to die cut them. I spritzed them lightly with water, then ran them through the Wild Rose Shaping Mold. Once they were completely dry, I brushed on a little watered down glue, dipped them in Crystal Clear, added a custom mix of the Rock N Roll Prills to the centers, then layered them on the card. I also tucked in a few pieces of the Leafy Accents that I die cut from the solid green papers then stamped it with Ranger Archival Ink in Leaf Green. They are great for fillers when you cut them apart. Get those prills!! They are awesome for the centers of your flowers!! I love mixing the colors to get a custom blend.
