Humming Along – Gate-Fold Card

The last stamp club that I hosted was focused on the Humming Along bundle and four different kinds of card bases.  We all had a great time making the different cards and using the very versatile Humming Along products.  After all – who doesn’t like hummingbirds and flowers, right?

Take a look at the picture below.  This is the beautiful gate-fold card that we made.

The gate-fold card style is definitely one that you should have in your back pocket of card designs.  It is quick, easy, and really packs a fun punch!  The card base for the gate fold card is made with a piece of card stock cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Scores are made at the 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″ on the 11″ side.  The picture below gives you a “cheat sheet” for the score lines.  You’ll notice that I suggest flipping the paper and scoring at 2 3/4″ on each end!

The gate-fold is made by folding the side, scored pieces into the middle of the card.  The picture below helps illustrate that folding.

There are many ways to decorate your gate-fold card.  This style is appropriate for any and all occasions!  And, the card will literally stand up on its own – too fun!

To get some additional tips on how to finish the card, please reference my previous post for a shadow box card using the same same set.

Shown below are the main products that I used to create the Humming Along gate-fold card.  If you click on any picture, you’ll go to my on-line store.

In my next post, I will share the amazing Z-fold card that we made featuring the Humming Along bundle.

Happy stamping!
