How I made this card 

I made a gate fold card from white card  and put red and blue card on the front that had been embossed with a folder flower one and added 2 large gems 
then made my easel card and the base is  glued to the inside of the gate fold card on the sides I used red card that had been embossed and laces and some large gems the easel card was made from white card red and blue card I have used a second embossing folder butterfly's to put my stamped and die cut sentiment on to I added some small gems I die cut some flowers and added large gems to the middles of them the bar across is the leftover bits of the first embossing card I have done some fake stitching on the card
