Twisted Gate Fun Fold Cards

Updated: Sep 4

I just love fun fold or fancy fold cards.  So I tried my hand a fun new fold called a twisted gate fold card.  My fun twist on it is I used a fun patterned paper stack as the main layers for the cards, a great way to use of all those fun papers we have in our stash!

Here is a video on how to make the cards, with a little fun chit chat :)




I made 3 versions of the card, the only change is how it is all orientated.  If it opens to the side, upwards, etc.  Here is the first card.


For this card the opening is pulled up to allow a horizontal stamp.


he second card I die cut out a bird from one of the patterned papers as the front element.


Measurements for the card to allow it to fit into an A2 sized envelope.


Base


7.5 x 5.5 in

Score at 2.5 and 5 inches


Score at diagonal on the left and right sides to make the twist fold as seen in the video.


Mat dimensions


4 x 2.25 in - cut on the diagonal for triangle sections.


For this card it opens sideways, allowing a vertical stamp inside.


And the last card all held together with Xyron adhesive. I used the Xyron tape runner to place all the elements of the papers to each side, it works like a charm!!



What fun fold card will you make?
