1 Cover the front of an A6 card blank with the orange side of the patterned paper. Cut a strip of the green area of the pattern and attach along the bottom of the card. Cut a thin strip of the blue area of the pattern, using scallop-edged scissors, and attach to the top edge of the card. Ink the card’s edges with Rainforest ink and stamp leaves from the set around the top edges.
2 Cut thin strips of brown card and attach to the bottom adding a punched, inked yellow flower to the top of each. Add another strip of the blue area of the paper to the bottom of the card and add another flower.
3 Cut a strip of yellow card measuring 15×4.5cm. Score and fold two lines to form a gatefold. Cover the front folded edges with the blue patterned paper and add detail with the Prussian Blue inkpad. Add four thin triangles of inked silver card and two yellow brads. Attach a negative magnetic snap behind each of the brads and cover with shapes cut from the patterned paper.
4 Attach two positive snaps to the reverse side of the back of the folded card which will hold the folded edges closed. Decorate the inside of the gatefolded flaps with more patterned paper and add a rub-on sentiment. Glue the gatefold-flapped card securely to the card blank. Add gems to finish.
