Gate Fold Card Technique with Martha!

Hello everyone, happy 4th of July to you!

It's Martha Lucia here to share with you a double gate fold card inspiration. I created this using the new Serenade papers from Quick Quotes that I am sure you will love!

Take a look at my card:


Don't think that this is a complicated card. It is actually very easy to make and I will try to explain to you how to make it:
  1. Cut a piece of Serenade 101 or any other decorated paper. The size needs to be 5-1/2" x 12"
  2. Make score lines on 2", 4", 8" and 10" over the long side. Fold all the scoring lines
  3. Mark 1-1/2" on both short sides.
  4. Cut from the 1-1/2" mark to the 4" on the left side. Keep the triangle.
  5. Cut from the 1-1/2" mark to the 8" on the right side. Keep the triangle.
  6. Fold in accordion style the front of the card.
  7. Paste the two triangles inside of the accordions to create the contrast of the colors.
  8. Cut a piece of Serenade 103 of 3-3/4" x 5-1/4" and paste on the center of the card.
  9. Stamp your sentiment using Green Leaf PowderPuff Chalk Ink or any other coordinating color of PowderPuff Chalk Ink. I used a sentiment from the stamp set Hello Sentiments from Joy Clair Stamps.
  10. Use a die cut or any other stamped image to keep the double gate fold closed.
