May Paper and Twine Card Samples

Gate Fold Flower Card

Using a 4.25x5.5 white card stock, stamp the base of your first flower at the center from Lawn Fawns "Fab Flower" Stamps.
Continue stamping with the other pieces of the flower and leaf. Stamp additional flowers and leaves around the first flower and keep building until you have covered the entire card stock.

Cut your stamp piece in half and trim to 1 7/8" by 5 1/4". You will have 2 pieces. Cut a purple piece of card stock 1/8' lager than your stamped pieces 2" by 5 3/8".
Adhere the stamp piece on top of the purple card stock. Using a stitched edge rectangular die, die cut a piece of white card stock for your sentiment "With Love & Hugs". Cut a piece of purple card stock 1/8" larger and adhere your sentiment.

Using a 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" white card stock, score at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8" fold at score lines to create your gate fold base. Stamp you sentiment. Stamp different pieces for the butterfly and die cut. Assemble all the pieces together to create your card.
