Relish Reading

Rogue Redhead Designs     Challenge #9-Gate Fold Cards

Good Tuesday Morning--grab a cuppa and get ready to create and enter the new challenge at Rogue Redhead Designs. There are lots of gate fold cards out there, but today I've created a Joy Fold card for you.
Here are the measurements I used:
Base: 8 1/2" X 4 1/4" scored at 3"--that creates the left half of the gate.
Piece that creates the right half of gate: 8" X 3"--I scored at 3 1/2" to accommodate the longer stamp, but you can score at 4" for a fatter gate.
Tip: Be sure to place the closure holder on the front of the card so it catches plenty of the bottom corner to hold it shut, also, use Scor-Tape or Red Line Tape to attach the left side of the closure to the front of the card so the flap will not pop it off.
The next step is choosing the pretty papers and stamps to create a striking creation to wow your recipient.
I used portions of  the Relish Reading, Just Sayin', and Beach Babes stamp sets. The gold ink is Brilliance Galaxy Gold, the papers and other ink are Well Worn designer papers and Early Expresso from Stampin' Up. 
We'd love to have you come over and enter the new challenge, you don't have to use Rogue Redhead stamps, but if you have them that would be great. Who knows if you enter, you might win some of the great stamps and you'd be set up for the next challenge.
Come out of you plain A2 card folds and try a card fold you might not have tried before.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥
