Gatefold cards are easy to make, and you can find many tutorials online. Below, I’ve provided measurements for this card, but you can alter them to make any size card you like. I was inspired by the recent Stampin Success issue I received, more specifically, the sunflower.
- Run So Saffron card stock through the Big Shot with the Scallop Circle Bigz Die.
- Then, cut between each scallop to make the flower petals.
- Next, I used a sponge dauber and So Saffron ink (with a very small amount of Champagne Shimmer Paint) to color the flower petals.
- Finally, I punched Early Espresso card stock with the 1/4″ Circle Punch and attached them to the center of the flower with mini glue dots. See the close up below.
The card base is Early Espresso, cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″. I used So Saffron card stock on the front panels, layered with Greenhouse Gala DSP. I attached the sunflower to the left panel only with a small piece of Sticky Strip.
Inside, I lined the base with So Saffron, Greenhouse Gala DSP, and Whisper White stamped with the Curly Cute congratulations stamp in Early Espresso ink. At the bottom, I attached a strip of card stock and DSP with mini glue dots (along the sides and bottom only) to form a little pocket. It will hold a gift card or folded bill/check.
