Easy and Festive Gatefold Cards
by Jennifer Svare
Hello! Today I'll share how I made these fun, simple gatefold cards!
The possibilities are endless with the color and embellishment options to create different looks and themes.
I used the Stitched Evangeline Snowflake as the base for a sparkly layer of Boho Snowflake. I love how these snowflake dies work together to create options! I definitely could have put a crystal or sequin on top of the snowflake, but I love how flat these cards are especially when mailing bulk cards for Christmas.
Since there were three square postage bases to embellish, I thought the three letters from the Joy Banner die perfectly matched the playful Heart Pattern Plate.
All of these dies are so versatile - even the lettering look can be changed with a different paper and crank of the die cutter!
The Roaming Polar Bear looks great all white and sparkly, and I just couldn't resist as long as the glitter paper was out! A quick flip to horizontal, and larger Rectangle Postage Layer made it fast and easy.
The Folk Merry Christmas is the perfect font for a Kraft-style card, so I used this for the interior card greeting. The red base was made using the Postage Rectangle Layers and the Pinpoint Rectangle Layers made the top layer so easy.
I love how the borders from the Postage Layers give a festive hello even while in the envelope!
