Tutorial - Angled Gatefold Cards

If you love gatefold cards, then you're going to enjoy this simple, fun twist on an old favourite!


1. Place a piece of 10" x 6" cardstock horizontally on your score board and score at 3" and 7". Fold along the score lines to form a basic gatefold card with an overlapping front.

2. Referring to the template above, trim away the corners of the cardstock.

3. Cut some patterned papers to decorate your card. You'll need one 37/8" x 57/8" rectangle for the centre, and four pieces for the side panels. (I found it easiest to use the card base as a template for the side panels. Place the card on top of some patterned paper and trace around the side pieces with a pencil. Trim away a little more to create the border around the edge. Make sure each set of two are mirror images of each other.)

4. Secure the patterned paper to the card base with glue or double sided tape.

5. Decorate your card as desired. I've printed a digital image and sentiment directly onto a piece of patterned paper, then layered that onto a piece of cardstock. I've glued both to the left-hand side of the card front, then added some Nuvo drops and hand-drawn borders to finish.

Happiness Is...

Deanne has combined one of the images from the Cat Tails digital set with a piece of bright and colourful patterned paper, some fabulous die cut flowers and a yellow card base to create this happy card!

Tuesday, December 5


One of the easiest ways to use silhouette digital stamps is to print the image and sentiment directly onto a piece of patterned paper, which is what I've done to create this card. I used matching papers to create a simple layered background, then decorated with punched flowers and Liquid Pearl dots.

One Day At A Time

Kathy has coloured the magnolia image from the new Stem in a Teacup digital set to create this card for a dear friend. She added a beautiful piece of vintage lace, threaded with a ribbon, along the top of her card, and a second piece of ribbon as a little bow on the cup handle.
