Happy Friday! Day 5 of our countdown to Halloween and it’s also Fun Fold Friday! Today’s project is a Gate Fold horizontal card. I loved this fold when I first made it because you usually see gate folds vertical and switching it up like this adds a little interest. Of course, paired with the Cutest Halloween suite, you can’t go wrong!
Darling! I added a belly band to help keep it closed, and like how it allows for a little “reveal” of the characters underneath that are cute out using the Cute Halloween 6 x 6 DSP from the Cutest Halloween suite.
Colored Card Stock:
– 4-1/4 x 11 (Base)
– 4-1/4 x 5-1/2
– 3 x 3
– 1 x 11 (Optional)
Designer Series Paper:
– 2 each @ 1-3/4 x 4
– 2 each @ 3/4 x 4 (can be same or coordinating)
– 3-1/4 x 4
– 2-3/4 x 2-3/4
- SCORE Base: 2 + 3-3/4 + 7-1/4 + 9 . Fold as shown.
- Fold into a Gate Fold card and attach to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 layer lining it up in the middle.
- For the belly band: 1″ x 11″ strip of CS, score at 2-3/4″ on one end. Fold at one side of your finished design; gently fold the other end around and press lightly… it will not meet/cross ends. So cover that with DSP to join it and then the cute jack o’lantern on top.
Here’s another card I made with this fold with no belly band:
Fun folds are really the best. Try them out if you haven’t already!
