Gate Fold Dream
Topic: Fantastic Folds

Challenge: Create a card with a Gate Fold. For those 'not in the know' this is a card which folds in equal amounts from each side so the edges meet in the center of the card.

I started with a green cardstock with a woodgrain texture and folded my card base. Then I used 'old paper' distress ink to bring out the woodgrain a bit. I bordered a piece of designer paper and a stamped/colored image each with a thin black border and layered them. These were adhered ONLY to the left panel so they swing away when the card is opened. I added a punched green border to the right panel.


The text is made up of tiny word stickers. These come on a sheet and can be mixed and matched to create phrases. It's kind of like playing with refrigerator magnet poetry. I added a few marker lines to tie the phrase together and finished with a single sticker from another set.

Here's a view showing the card opening.
