144. Cottage Gate

Hello and welcome! πŸ’•

The Royal Gateway gates open to reveal a beautiful cottage garden, this stepper card has so much dimension but squishes flat for mailing 😊

To create the stepper card base: cut a piece of white cardstock 7 x 11”. Lay portrait margins left/right are 1”. Cut a line 1” from the top and leave a gap of 1 3/4” from the bottom. Repeat this cut from the left and right to form two identical cuts. Lay the cardstock on the score board and score between the cut lines at 1”, 2”, 3 1/4”, 4 1/2”, 6”, 7 1/2”, 9 1/4”. Score the 1” margins at 5 1/2”. Burnish the score lines from 1” mountain, valley repeat. The 5 1.2” margin score lines are mountain fold.
Cut panels to cover the card with Sweet Magnolia Paper Collection and edge with Pink Peony Archival.
Stamp in Jet Black Archival onto white cardstock all the Countryside Cottage elements, colour with Zig Clean Color Markers and die-cut.
Die-cut Royale Gateway Die in black cardstock and again in Luxe Silver Cardstock and adhere together with dries clear to create a silver shadow behind. Die-cut Ironwork Sentiment β€˜Happy Birthday’ in black cardstock and Luxe Silver Cardstock and adhere together to create a silver shadow, adhere the sentiment onto pink Sweet Magnolia paper. Die-cut Rounded Window Frame in yellow Sweet Magnolia paper.  Die-cut a Rounded Window Frame and Countryside Cottage in matching Sweet Magnolia paper and adhere to the backs of the die-cuts then adhere to the back of the card. Add the sentiment last to ensure enough space has been left clear.
Adhere the scene to the steps, then attach the ironwork sentiment/mat to the back of the card. Add the Royale Gateway to the front of the card and add die-cut embellishments over. Add the flowerpots on dots for a little dimension.
