Gatefold Christmas Cards

Gatefold Christmas cards that I created following Jennifer McGuire’s Surprise Gate Fold Cards. Of course Jennifer’s cards are more elaborate than mine but I do like this concept and how they turned out. The poinsettia card outside folds were sponged using a Tim Holtz stencil, the star card uses patterned paper and the ornament card has dry embossed panels.

Primarily you need a decorative die and the outline matching die with the decorative die on the outside of the gatefold and the outline die is behind the outside die with a message which leaves the inside of the card for a personal handwritten message. I think I may add “something” maybe a light stamped image or light stenciling inside, too. These were fun to make. I hope someone comes out with a large snowflake die and outline.

  1. Beautiful cards! I agree with Bonnie, in the clean and spirit filled design. I didn’t watch JM, but would follow your idea.

    1. Thanks, Lisa, I wasn’t sure at first what to do with the side panels but I wanted to keep the focus on the dies cuts.

  2. These are super Gayle. Very festive with a different overall look than a normal card. Love them all but am particularly partial to the star.
