Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations....

Good morning friends and welcome to another Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations!  I'm here this morning to share another card using the Elegant Gateway dies just released on Black Friday.  I am in love with these dies and they are becoming my "go to" die for many things!  

The next photo is my card all opened and on display.  These Gateway Fold Card bases make it so easy to create a work of art and they pair perfectly with the new Elegant Gateway Dies!

Next up I have a close-up of my Dahlia Flower.  These are so 3 dimensional that just one flower can carry a card!

Instructions: For the first panel I cut a piece of Page 10B with the largest shape die from HCD2-7326 Ornate Flourish Gateway Die. Glue this piece down as a shadow panel. Using the Shadow panel die, then the outer ornate die and the third largest die together cut using white cardstock. ut inner panels picking out a pretty part of Page 3B, 11B, and 1-B. Layer the two center panels (the orange piece first and then the yellow ornate piece and glue down. Cut out the upper panel and glue it down then cut out the bottom panel and stamp the sentiment then glue it down.

Using Fern green ink, stamp the leaves. Stamp the flower petals with Rose Madder ink then color using Buttercup in the center then Rose Madder on the edges. Color the leaves with Leaf Green then cut everything out using the coordinating dies. Run the petals and leaves through the die cut machine inside the mold. I spritzed everything with some water. Turn everything out onto the desk to dry. As the flower petals are drying add a bit more shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Using the hot glue gun, glue the flower and leaves together and then glue to the front of the card. Add glitter and allow to dry.

For the second panel of the card I took the scalloped die from HCD2-7325 Scalloped Flourish Gateway Die and cut a pretty scene from the paper collection. This was page 3-B. I added some Rose Madder ink to the edges and glued the panel down.

For the third panel I cut the shadow piece from HCD2-7328 Lattice Swirl Gateway Die from page 11-B and glued it down. Cut the lattice die using white cardstock and glue it down. Cut a piece of the paper to fit inside the oval and glue it down. I chose a section of Page 1-B for this.
