Double Gate Fold Cards




Double Gate Folds are a card type that I hadn’t tried before but I do like how sturdy they turn out – nice and strong and they stand up well.     A very easy card but different enough for people to take notice, get the clear instructions on how to get your card base here - http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/doublegatefoldcard






Take note – if you want patterns on both sides, you need to use DOUBLE SIDED patterned paper.  Initially I used very pretty, but single sided thick paper which means half the card was white… see the green and orange cards below.  They are still effective, but I do like the double sided ones better.





You will need to cut a matt card for the greeting space and for the front greeting I used the 2 3/8” scallop punch for the stamping space and 2 ½” round punch for co-ordinating cardstock.   As well as stamps I used some grosgrain ribbon and rhinestones for decoration.


Stamps used were
– the “congratulations” stamp came from Stampin’ Up’s All Year Cheer set  and the “you can never have too much happy” stamp is from Stampin Up’s Yippee Skippee set.  
- the Mother’s Day version used stamps from Stampin Up’s My Mother set.
- the get well version used a stamp from the Stampin Up Curvy Verses set and a die cut heart.
- the thank you version used Stampin Up’s So Many Thanks stamp. 



Why not try a Double Gate Fold card next :)
