This is a fun way to make a gate fold card, and it’s so forgiving because the flaps don’t have to meet precisely as in a typical gate fold. The flaps here leave a 3/4″ strip of the inside exposed – and that is a perfect place for a greeting. The greeting and basket pieces are all from the Basket Bunch Bundle.
The scalloped square panel is only attached to the top flap. I used dimensionals to attach it to the flap after it was decorated.
The Sweet Sugarplum card base measures 5 ½” x 7 ¾”, scored at 1 ¾”, 6”.
The Whisper White mats measure 5 ¼” x 1 1/2” and the designer paper pieces measure 5″ x 1 1/4″. I used patterns from the Succulent Garden collection, but this would be a good card type for many papers and themes.
