    Twisted Gate Fold Card Details

    Fun fold cards provide a unique way to open and close a card and this twisted gate fold won’t disappointed. The two diagonal panels provide “movement” to the outside layer which houses the adorable image from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders stamp set. Here’s a tip about this fun fold card- choose an image that will look favorable when rotated. Since the panels twist, the image will pivot.

    The facial expressions on these images have stolen my heart. The New Wonders stamp set includes three different images and numerous greetings.

    Twist open the card front to reveal the inside panel, perfect for your handwritten message. Another added bonus to this stamp set is the ability to build your greeting. Change out the ‘thank you’ for one of the other three appropriate phrases and you’ll cover a large selection of card themes.

    Cutting Dimensions

    • Cardstock base is cut 4 1/4″ x 7 1/2″, score at 2 1/2″ and 5 “
    • Score the card base left and right panels, between the center score lines on an angle, corner to corner. Create both angles in the same direction.
    • Perennial Essence Designer Paper is cut 2 1/4″ x 3 7/8″ and then cut lengthwise diagonally. You’ll need two sets if you want to cover both the top and bottom layers of this fold as I have.
    • Thick Whisper White cardstock for the image is cut 2 1/4″ x 2 3/4″
    • Blueberry Bushel cardstock layer for the image is cut 2 3/8″ x 2 7/8″
    • Whisper White cardstock insert is cut 2 1/4″ x 4″

    I used the same fold and the Floral Essence stamp set for this alternate idea. To achieve the two-tone blossoms, ink the image using Petal Pink ink. Using a sponge dauber, add color to the tips of the petals using Rich Razzleberry ink.
