Flap Gate Fold Card


Made another gate fold card and this time I used circle dies and one circle goes over the other circle for the card front:


For this card base I used black #110 weight card stock from Mike's. All the Halloween prints are from the stash. Used white glittered card stock to cut out the ghost dies in the Cuttlebug. For the "BOO" I used black foil card stock. Stars were punched out using a small star punch from the dollar bin.

To make this card I cut and scored the black card stock base using the Scor-Pal which is already marked for gate fold cards. Then I cut and adhered the printed card stock to the two front sides of the card.  I used the circle dies from Stampin Up. Cut out two black circles and two printed circles -- four different dies were used. This photo shows the larger circle on the left side:


The the smaller circle with the ghosts and stars lays on top of these circles when the card is closed:


For the inside of the card I used a stamp from Northwoods Rubber Stamps:


Another gate fold card with a different closure. Same gate fold pattern but a much different look from this last gate fold card I made:


Gate fold cards are good for a different card opening as well as they use up smaller pieces of card stocks/scraps. TFL and YOLO

Oh what a diversity of looks with this gatefold technique, just changing up your DP from funky Halloween to delicate florals. I REALLY like what you've done with each of these cards. Absolutely love the pretty delicate rose pattern and the embossed dots mats. I always manage to screw up a gate fold, and the edges never meet properly! Heard you got some good loot at the stamp sale the other day! Hope all is well. Hugs & TFS

Thanks ladies for the nice comments on the gate fold card! Much easier to make then what it looks like when done -- the key to gate folds is to use the Scor-Pal scoreboard as they have all their boards with gate fold markings so you have no guess work. Thanks Mary and thanks Carol for your blog visit!! Keep cool!! Candee P
