Hi everyone, Happy Wednesday To You!
Today I want to share with you a Gatefold Card, so easy and fun to make.
This is one of my favorite cards to make, because it looks complicated but is rather easy. It is a standard A2 size card, so it also fits in regular envelopes.
Here is a closer look at the front of the card:
I used the Blessings Stamp Set, this is such a nice, clean and peaceful set, one of my favorites. Great for a guy or a gal. I used the leaves from the stamp set to create my own background paper.
The How To For This Card:
Brown Cardstock: 8.5 x 5.5 score each end at 2 1/8 (for card base) 1 at 2.5 x 2.5 (for card front layer)
White Cardstock: 1 at 4 x 5.25 (for inside) 2 at 1 7/8 x 5.25 (for front panels) 1 at 2.25 x 2.25 (for front greeting)
~~Place three leaves on an acrylic block, facing different directions. Starting with the two front panels, I used brown ink to stamp the leaves all over. I also stamped the bottom of the 4 x 5.25 piece of white cardstock at the bottom, to carry the pattern to the inside of the card.
~~Adhere these pieces to the card.
~~For the greeting, I used the Misti Stamping Tool to align the stamp in the center (on a diagonal), stamped with the same brown ink. Place foam squares on the backside of this piece. Take the brown 2.5 x 2.5 cardstock, apply glue (I used Art Glitter Glue) to one half. Adhere to the left panel on a diagonal, lining up the points with the edge of the panel. Adhere the stamped image with greeting on top of that! Wala, your fabulous gate fold card is now finished.

~~Tips~~ Use whatever color cardstock or patterened paper you like. You can stamp the same leaves in black ink and color them in with markers to make the card be more colorful. You can also change the size of the image for the front of the card, to fit whatever image or greeting you would like.
Hope you all have a Wonderful Wednesday. Hugs, Stacy ♥
