What’s a gatefold card?  It’s a card that opens in the middle instead of at the side.

Basically, it’s a fun fold card! And best of all, it’s easy to make.

The biggest mistake made when making a gatefold card is gluing the card shut! 

Ask me how I know. 🙂

Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions on how to make a gatefold card.

In the video, I used one of the greatest scoring tools ever, the Simply Scored! 

The Simply Scored scoring tool is so great when you need to make multiple score lines for a project or if you’re making multiples of the same project so that you can mark your measurements ONCE and then they are set until you’re done.


Okay, now it’s your turn! Make a gatefold card and send it to a friend.

Happy Stamping!
