Hello. It’s Gaylynn with my Technique Time series. Today, I am sharing a way to make a simple and pretty gate fold card. This design would work for many occasions.
This gate fold panel can be used as a card with something on the inside, or as a card wrap to include an insert. This one is made as a card. It would work lovely as an invitation wrap as well. I decided to use the colors of gold and light blue. See below for details and a video tutorial.
Here are helpful tips for creating this. To begin, pre-cut solid cardstock paper to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. Next, using a scoring board, score each of the long ends at 2 1/4″. Trim and stamp an inside panel onto another piece of cardstock and set aside. Then, stamp or heat emboss onto the backside of the solid scored gate fold panel. Next, add ink blending accents around the flowers on the end flaps. Next, adhere the inside stamped panel (optional) or place it loosely inside. Finally, tie cording or ribbon around the card for closure to finish. Once folded, this would fit into an A2 sized envelope.

Here is another look.
Finally, here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process. Take a look at the process.
Also, if you were inspired to create something like this, share your project on the Unity Show And Tell Facebook page. We would love to see what you make.
