Designer Tip: For the Gate-Fold version of this Diamond die cut card, I decorated the front and inside with altered Mystic Garden Foiled Fancies for a pretty look. Place the folded card with the gate-fold front on top. Cover the 2 front panels with Mystic Garden floral collage paper with the large pink flowers on the left panel. Ink the edges black. Cut the following butterflies from the Foiled Fancies sheet: two 3 1/8", two 2", and one 1"; cut a large swirl from the sheet. Use the BT6 pen to color the butterflies. Use the alcohol blender pen to go over the color to mottle it evenly over each piece. Use the BP5 pen to color the swirl and go over the color with the alcohol blender pen as for the other pieces. Mat the large butterflies and one 2" butterfly with Mystic Garden black/peach script paper with thin borders. Foam tape the 2" butterfly angled on the upper left front panel of the card as shown. Place a large butterfly angled near the center of the right panel so it also overlaps the left panel. Foam tape the butterfly on the right panel only. Place Tiny Words & Phrases "HELLO" on the lower right panel, 1/2" from the bottom. Open the card. Use the patterns to cut the square and 2 large triangles from Mystic Garden aqua swirls paper, 4 small triangles from Mystic Garden peach/black collage paper, and 4 small triangles from Mystic Garden dark pink patterned paper. Ink the edges of each piece and glue on the inside panels as shown. Glue the remaining altered Foiled Fancies on the center inside panel. Place Dazzles "Thinking of You" near the embellishments. Close the card. For the band: Fold the cardstock band on the scored lines. Add glue to the band, then place Mystic Garden tan/black script paper centered on it. Smooth the paper across the band and fold the paper with the band at the folds. The paper will not cover the ends with the slits. Trim the excess paper from the band and ink the long edges. Glue remaining Foiled Fancies large butterfly angled on the left side of the band. Place the band over the front of the card as shown.
