Hello! Diana here with a monochromatic birthday card for a dear friend of mine. She is such an elegant older lady that I wanted to convey that same elegance in the card – so I broke out some shimmery ribbon and pearls.
This card ended up being a square 5 3/4″ by 5 3/4″. On the page to buy the Gatefold – Elegant Roses die is a great YouTube tutorial oh how to create the gatefold. I used a lavendar cardstock for the gatefold and some one- sided designer paper for the inside of the card. I folded the 5.5″ x 11″ paper in half so that the inside of the card is white. I added a row of pearls to the top and bottom of the folded inside.
Now the inside flips open to showcase the message inside.
To decorate the inside, I used the Butterflies Spray stencil (you can also make your own by die cutting the Butterflies Spray from cardstock and using the negative) and sponged a light smattering of butterflies in purple ink. I also stamped the sentiment “Have an awesome day” and balloons from the Happy Birthday collection. From a slightly darker purple paper, I die cut Happy Birthday as well as the butterfly from the Butterfly Flourish die set.
I used Copic markers and a white jelly pen to color and add details to the stamp and die cut.
The butterfly above the ribbon is also adorned with the same pearls as the row under the gatefold.
Thank you so much for looking!
