Throwback Thursday #8

Hi everyone! This post is for the throwback thrusday challenge with Emma at My Creative Time. This week's challenge was to make a birthday card using the celebrations cartridge. I do not have the celebrations cartridge so I used the forever young cartridge to make the flower. I also decided that I would try to make a card I have never made before which is called a gate card. I think it turned out cute.

The base of the card is cut out at 8 1/2 x 4 1/4

It was scored at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8

The pattern paper on the front was cut out at 4 x 1 3/4

The white square on the front is cut at 3 x3 and the yellow mat is cut out at 2 3/4 x 2 3/4

I cut the flower out at 2 inches.
After I had the pattern paper on the front flaps added I made the white square and yellow mat for the front. I attached the yellow mat to the white then stamped Happy Birthday! on the yellow in black momento ink. The stamp came from a set I got at Joann Fabric. I then added pop dots to the flower and added it to the yellow.

The last thing I did was added two pop dots to the back of the white square and attached it to only one side of the card, so that the card can open.
I hope you enjoyed this card.
