Hi everyone. I whiped up a simple gate fold card to show you how to make them. I love when I get requests! So if any of you would like to see a tutorial , and I know how to do it....feel free to ask.
So here goes: This is our Gate Fold Card!
Next your going to cut out your matting. I chose a burgundy colored card stock with a cream colored vellum overlay. The vellum has flecks of fall colors embedded in it.
Next I stamped out some leaves (Stampin Up Stamps) and colored them in while I watched Grey's Anatomy. I used Prisma Colored Pencils. I used at least three colors on each leaf.
I didn't have any Gamsol (another tutorial) I used my Stampin Up crystal affects to give the leaves some shine and smoothness.
I then cut out two mats for each side of the gate panels. The green was done at 5 1/4" and 1 3/4". If you notice the corners are rounded in this sample. This was the original until I spilled coffee on it. Breaking my own rule of having a cup with a cover at all times at my work table. The tan panels are 5 " by 1 1/2" that was put through the crimping tool.
Next I wrapped a ribbon around it and glued it into place. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry...it doesn't show through the ribbon, even this velvet ribbon.
after I hand cut the leaves and acorns out and glued them onto the front with Helmar's Acid Free Craft Glue, except for the two larger leaves, those were popped up with a dob of Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots. All card stock was Bazzill.
Cheers until next time!
