April is a month of many birthdays. I literally can’t keep up with the amount of cards and handmade gifts that I have to make for my friends and family!
Here is a card that I made for a dear friend of mine. I just love the grandness of gate fold cards, so I decided to make one for her.
Here’s how I made it…
You need a deep pink card stock which measures 8 x 5 inches.
Now score the card at 2 inches and then at 6 inches. Check the picture below.
Now take 2 mix and match patterned paper. You’ll need 2 for the front flaps and 3 for the inside.
For the front panels cut them out at 1 7/8 x 4 7/8.
The inside slim panels will be the same size as above but a different patterned paper.
Cut the middle panel at 3 7/8 x 4 7/8.
Here’s what you will have once you are done with the cutting.
Using a strong adhesive other that liquid glue, stick them on the base card.
Your basic card is ready! 😀
Now to make it pretty…
You’ll need a few embellishments … It’s totally up to you how you want it decorated. Here’s how I embellished my card.
I used the same pink card stock to make the flower and the panel. I used metallic silver sheet to add the extra bling to my card.
And here’s how it looked like when I was finally done jazzing it up!
And another angle…
So.. what do you think?
I really hope she likes it… 🙂
Happy crafting y’all!
