Gatefold cards are easy to make yet they can have such impact! There's something a little bit grand about a double opening card, don't you think?
"The fence that makes good neighbors needs a gate to make good friends"
There is something about receiving a handmade greeting card that you need to untie before you can see the personal message inside. This paper craft technique does not really require any special materials either.
Now you can decorate your card and finish it the way you want to.
You can also decorate the inside of your card, of course. Here I used more of the designer series paper from the front and printed my sentiments on Vellum, then anchored them down with more brads like the ones I used at the front of the card.
I used one continuous piece of designer series paper to cover the entire inside of the card, then carefully cut it into panels to fit each section so the card would open and close easily without too much weight in the creases.
Why not try custom altering your own brads to match your papercraft projects?
Of course, the possibilities for decorating your gatefold card are endless, limited only by your imagination and what's in your stash.
Have fun making your gatefold cards!
If you make one, I would love to see it.
