Todays pretty card is a Gatefold card with the addition of the Victorian Bow and some beautiful flowers. It is a bit photo heavy but it will give you all the steps you need to make the card.
Get yourself a cuppa and enjoy the tutorial.

For my card I have chosen A4 blue and white to create a fresh looking card.
Using a score board I have scored along the A4 Gate fold lines on the short side of the card and then turned it round to score the other side on the same mark
Fold them into the centre and press neatly with your bone folder.
Line the inside of the card with mats and layers
I have chosen a dark blue to leave a small border around the Happy Birthday Card
Flat Glue in place
Make mats and layers to fit each of the front panels on your Gatefold with the same blue card but use the spotty card for the top. Leave small border around the edges again and make sure that each of these front panels is equal
Cut the largest Victorian Bow four times in white and glue them all together and cut the smallest one once to hold the sentiment
Cut the sentiment from the same dark blue card several times and layer them together.
Cut the Flowing Floral six times and layer two of them together in twos for strength and leave the other two as cut.
Add these two single ones to the inside of the back panel and add small pearls to each of the flowers
With layered Victorian Bow add foam tape to one side and added it to the left panels on the front of the card. Take care not to add the adhesive too far over or you will glue the card front shut
.... Not a good Idea !!
Add the small die cut with the sentiment attached to the front panel with foam tape in between the layers
Add the Flowing Floral to the side panels so that it will sit under the flowers. I have cut mine apart so that I can add them above and below the floral display. I have added small blue pearls to the flower part of the die cut.
I have arranged the flowers on either side of the large focal point taking care that the flowers on the right of the card do not interfere with the opening of the Gate Fold and sprinkle them with glitter
More tomorrow ...
