Thursday with Sandiebella: Pop Out Gatefold Card Tutorial

Sandiebella is back with another gorgeous step by step tutorial for us today, showing how she created a pop out gatefold card featuring our beautiful Teeny Tiny Townie with a Bouquet stamp. Such a pretty image, perfect for all sorts of occasions. Read on to see how Sandie worked her magic again…

Pop Out Gatefold Card


White card
Designer paper
Scoring board, ruler, bone folder
Alphabet Dies (optional)

How to:

Stamp Teeny Tiny Townie with a Bouquet onto white card. Colour, then fussy cut around the outline.

Cut a stitched oval measuring approx. 4.5″ x 3.25″ from designer paper and adhere the image to it using foam tape or dots. Set aside.

Cut a piece of white card measuring 10″ x 7″. Use the template below to cut and score.


Once all the scoring and cutting are done, fold as shown below. The 1″ top and bottom sections can be folded valley or mountain, to suit your own preference.
For the panels, cut:
White card:
(2x) 6-7/8″ x 2-3/8″ – side panels
(4x) 7/8″ x 2-3/8″ – top and bottom 1″ sections
(1x) 3.25″ x 4.75″ – centre panel
(2x) 6.75″ x 2.25″ – side panels
(4x) 0.75″ x 2.25″ – top and bottom 1″ sections
(1x) 3-1/8″” x 4-5/8″” – centre panel
(2x) 5/8″ x 4-7/8″ – each side of the centre panel
(2x) 6-7/8″ x 2-3/8″ – back side panels

Adhere all the paper and card layers to the card base.

Cut ‘For You’ from the alphabet dies and adhere to one of the side panels

Adhere the stitched oval with Teeny Tiny Townie with a Bouquet to the centre of the card base, using foam tape or dots.

    Bonjour, Sandie je présume
    Je sais, sais dèjà gentil d’avoir le tuto
    mais malheureusement les inches je n’arrive pas .
    Serait il possible d’ avoir les mesure en cm ?
    A 77 ans on a nos habitudes .
    se serait vraiment genti de votre part
    merci d’avance.

      Hi Lidia, as Sandie creates these tutorials as a free resource, we can’t expect her to cover multiple units of measurement. You can use online tools to convert the measurements yourself – Google does this via their search box for example if you type in “4 inches in cm” it will give you the conversion. Hopefully this will help you to enjoy the tutorials!
