Gate Fold Card

This is a sample Thank You card for a male graduation party. I think masculine cards are really challenging because cards by nature are girly. My general rule of thumb for making a masculine card is no ribbon or glitter. Other than that, paper and ink should be pretty much gender neutral territory.

The Gate Fold Card (tutorial here) is a fun one to make. I started out with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Chocolate Chip card stock scored at 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″. The front panels of the card are decorated using Holiday Lounge DSP. To “close” the card, I attached a square of chocolate chip card stock layered with Tempting Turquoise. In the center, I used the Scallop Square Punch and the sentiment from Lots of Thoughts stamped in Chocolate chip ink on Whisper white card stock. The square is adhered with a dimensional on the left flap only.

Inside, I lined the card with Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White, stamping the sentiment from Very Thankful using my TT and CC markers.
