Fancy Fold Explosion Card

Gate-fold Card
         Hi friends I needed to make a birthday card to mail to a blogger friend.This is a Gate fold card in a garden theme with fluttering butterflies and handmade flowers !
Handmade Flowers
         I love using the Poppy Stamps Meso die as a backdrop to handmade flowers.You can see more examples of this die on my pinterest board : PoppyStamps Meso background die 
Handmade Flowers
All the handmade flowers were stamped and die cut using Heartfelt creations Botanical rose -wings.
Handmade Resin Fairy
I couldn't resist adding my handmade resin fairy to the garden!
Explosion Card
 On opening the front flap of the gate-fold card there is a framed "Happy Birthday"
Handmade Flowers
           The orange of my base card is rather bright but I do hope my blogger friend is cheered up seeing such bold bright colors!
Heat Embossed Marianne Petra die
        The top corner of my card flap has an embossed Marianne die cut .Many Marianne dies are perfect for dry and heat embossing and here are links to more projects using the Marianne Designs Petra Corners die : 3 D Chariot tutorial , 3 D Gazebo Tutorial , Easy Fancy fold card tutorial , 3 D Lantern tutorial 
Explosion Card
        On opening both the flaps of the Gate fold there is an  Explosion Pop Up fold with flowers and leaves and a Pergola framing it[ another Marianne die cut] . Here is the tutorial link to making the explosion fold : Explosion Fold tutorial and here is one more example using the explosion : Box a Card tutorial
