Gatefold Challenge and Tutorial by Asa

Gatefold Challenge and Tutorial by Asa

Hello there Oddies! Are you having fun at Facebook Fun Day?!

It´s Åsa here and Im going to show you a Gate Fold Window Card, hoping to inspire you to show us some fun Card Folding!

Here is what you need:

Some cardstock, designer paper, an amazing odd image (I used the polar bear from Winter Friends on this card)  and a die or shape of your choice.

The gate fold it self is a very easy card fold.

Cut your cardstock in your regular size, 6″x12″, and then fold it at 3″ and 9″.

Then I cut out my image with the same shape I want to use to do the window.

At the next step I put the die/shape on the inside on the card, at the same place that I want my picture later.

It´s important that you put the cutting part upwards!

I use tape to be sure it don´t move when I run it through my Big Shot.

Then I fold over the flaps over the die….

…and finally put the DP on the top (my size 6″x6″).

Then when I run it through my Big Shot I will get the same cut/shape at all the papers at the same time.

This is how it looks when I´ve cut it all out.


Now it´s only the fun part left – to put everything together and decorate the card:

The front of the card.

And this is how it looks when the card is open.


I hope you followed me all the way to the end of the post, now Im so looking forward to seeing your amazing creations. We have a day full of fun projects and giveaways. Make sure you don´t miss all the fun!! You have thru tomorrow (sept 23) at midnight EST to link up your projects for this challenge below.

Hugs, Åsa
