Simple Gate Fold

Hi there, Stampers!  Today’s card is a simple one. It’s a gate fold card made with the Stampin’ Up! Work Of Art stamp set.

A gate fold card starts with a 8.5″ x 5.5″ piece of card stock, scored 2 1/8″ for either side.  This makes for a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card – like we normally have as our card base – except that it fold into the middle, rather than open from one side. (Does that make sense?)

I then cut two pieces of Soft Sky card stock, 5.5″ x 2″ and randomly stamped the Work Of Art stamps on those two pieces of cardstock in Marina Mist ink and adhered them to either side of the gate fold with snail adhesive.  I then cut a piece of Night of Navy 2.25″ x 2.25″ and a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2″ x 2″.  On the Whisper White piece I stamped a swoosh from the Work of Art stamp set in Soft Sky and the Happy Birthday Wishes from Petite Pairs in Night of Navy and adhered it to the Night of Navy cardstock with snail adhesive.  I then attached it to the card by adhering only one side to the gate fold with snail adhesive (so the card would still open).

This card is really easy to do and takes minimal supplies.  All of which can be purchased in my store by clicking the shop now – or by clicking the items in the list.

Happy Stamping,
