Happy Monday dumplings, if there is such a thing, lol. After a large hot cup of something caffeinated Mondays,while not my favorite day of the week, don’t seem as bad as when I woke up. Now on to today’s project. Miss Hammie thinks that by now all her dumplings have figured out she likes fun folds and this week we’re looking at Gate fold cards.
Today’s is a simple straight forward Gate fold. Let me take you thru the steps.
You begin with a piece of card stock that measures 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches.
Next you score that piece of card stock at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8. This will create a 2 1/8 section on both sides. Fold them toward the center and burnish your score lines.
Next cut two pieces of dsp to measure 4 x 1 7/8 inches and adhere them to the front of your card base on those 2 1/8 inch sections. These two sections are the two sides of your “gate”.
Now you need to create the “latch” that brings the two sides of your gate together. I used the 3 largest ovals in the Stitched Shapes framelits dies, layering them by size. I stamped my sentiment on the smallest oval.
For my card I used Old Olive card stock for my card base. I selected my dsp from the Quilted Christmas paper stack. My “latch” was made from Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White card stock. My sentiment which was stamped in Real Red is from the Christmas Quilt stamp set. To add just a little extra touch I added a star from the Stitched Felt Embellishments.
I’m pleased with the way it turned out.
I wonder what type of Gate Fold Wednesday will hold?
