I had some folks wanting to know how I made the Christmas Gatefold Card I posted earlier (the blue snowflake one posted earlier so here you go:


Christmas Gatefold Card – (see photo on 10-18 blog)

Cutting Instructions:

Cut cardstock for base at 8 x 5 ½” and score at 2 and 6” and fold. 

Cut 4 each cream cardstock at 1 ¾ x 5 ¼” and 2 each cream cardstock at 1 ¾ x 1 ¾”, Cut 4 each patterned paper and 1 at 1 ½  x 5” and 1each 3 ¾ x 5 ¼” (frosted cardstock CTMH), Cut 2 each silver cardstock at 2 x2”, Cut 2 each blue cardstock at 2 ¼  x 2 ¼”

Stamping Instructions:

On the 1 ¾ x 1 ¾” stamp (stamps are from the Workshop on the Go Frosted Cardmaking Kit) with snowflake and Peace and Joy (twilight ink).  Distress edges of each using twilight ink and a sponge dauber. 

On the cream patterned side of the frosted cardstock stamp sentiment and snowflake from the stamp set from the Workshop on the Go Frosted Cardmaking Kit.

On a 4 ¾ x 5 ¾” ivory envelope (invitation size) stamp a coordinating snowflake on the bottom right corner (always coordinate envelope and card for a finished look).

Assembly:

Center and glue patterned paper to four cream strips (blue pattern facing up) now glue these to the four gates of the cards (2” fold over inside and outside the card).  Center and glue sentiment (3 ¾ x 5 ¼” piece to inside of card.  Center and glue snowflake and sentiment onto silver cardstock then center and glue that onto blue cardstock.  Place glue on left half of sentiment and glue to left gatefold (do not glue onto right gatefold or card will not open).  Place glue on right half of snowflake and glue to right gatefold.
 
The Frosted Cardmaking Kit from CTMH not only made me 15 beautiful cards I had paper left over to make several more cards.  Check out the kit at www.craftwithronnie.ctmh.com
