Dutch Dare Card Challenge have a new challenge on at the moment and the theme is called ‘open the gate’. Here is my entry for their challenge. I made this card for my friend’s birthday. With the card I used whisper white card stock. I folded the card to make the gate. I then embossed the sides of the gate using the cuttlebug Birds and Swirls embossing folder. Once embossed I used chalks to colour in the vines , flowers and birds. Then using some pink textured cardstock I used the eyelet border punch to make two strip for either side of the gate. I finished off by punching a scallop circle out of textured cardstock, a 1 3/4 circle out of pink pirouette and then a 1 1/4 circle out whisper white card stock. I then place a gold heart in the centre of the cirlce. To finish off, I embossed a pink envelope using Devine swirl.

Accessories: Embossing folder Devine Swirl, Embossing folder Birds and Swirls, Gold Heart Sticker, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, 1 3/4 Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Eyelet Border Punch
