Secret Garden Card

This is a card I could never sell. It was a labour of love.

In the next 3 Birds Tweet Trimmings set there are two beautiful 4 x 12 iron fence borders. I cut the middle section from one of the borders to make this gate fold card.

Once the gate was in place I glued on all these leaves and dried mini rose buds. I have had these tiny paper leaves in my stash for almost 8 years. Finally, I found a home for them on this card!

I attached this heart embellishment to keep the card closed.

But on the inside, I layered it with beautiful Japanese paper to continue the secret garden theme.

Very sweet. A gatefold card with an actual gate - clever.
