Hey everyone, it’s time for another fantastic DT Thursday with our scoring and folding queen Sandiebella! She’s got a gorgeous Double Gate Fold Card design for you to create using her step by step guide. PLUS she’s showing off our adorable new Tiny Townie “Lacey has a Letter”.
Double Gate Fold Card Step by Step Tutorial:
Cut another piece of white card measuring 5″ x 10″
Fold both pieces of card as shown. Use a bone folder to crease them well.
Cut one piece of white card measuring 5.5″ x 5.5″ and two pieces measuring 2.75″ x 5.5″
Cut a piece of white ribbon, approx 17″ long. On the 5.75″ side of the bottom base layer, apply a strip of double sided tape about 1/4″ in from the edge. Adhere about 3″ of the ribbon down, as shown. Apply another piece of tape to secure the ribbon further.
Adhere the card/paper panel over the ribbon.
Adhere the other 2 panels on the smaller sections.
Cut TWO pieces of white card measuring 4.75″ x 4.75″ and TWO pieces of patterned paper measuring 4 5/8 x 4 5/8″. Adhere the patterned papers down onto the white card to make 2 panels.
Fold over and apply a small strip of double sided tape about 1/4″ in from the edge.
Cut a piece of ribbon approx 10″ long. Position the 5″ square card on to the base layer and adhere the ribbon, lining it up with the ribbon on the back section.
Take the second 4.75″ panel and adhere over the ribbon.
Apply adhesive to the back of the 5″ sqaure inside card and adhere to the inside of the bottom base layer – centering it on all 4 sides.
Colour the image using your desired medium and matt with some white card, leaving about 1/8″ border all around.
Cut a 4″ square piece of card for the inside, to write your message on.
Stamp the sentiment* and cut out with the sign die.
Embellish the front panel as desired and tie the ribbon to close the card up.
