Triangle Gatefold Card Details

Recently I had a viewer ask if I had any retirement card ideas. Looking through hundreds of videos I realized I didn’t and thought it was time to remedy that. And what better way than with a triangle gatefold card fold!


I’ve used the On to Adventure stamp set that includes fun, whimsical images and greetings for a variety of occasion. I think you’ll fall in love with their expressions!


This fun fold is easy and versatile. Consider using it for wedding or shower invitations or even birth announcements. The triangle folds attach easily to the sides of the card making this a great fun fold for new or seasoned card makers.


I used the Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers to color in the images. Be sure to use Thick Whisper White or Thick Very Vanilla cardstock with these alcohol-based markers for the optimum shading and vibrance. I’ve also included a quick demonstration on how to use them in today’s video.

  • Garden Green cardstock base is cut 4 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ (fits in a standard medium size envelope)

Christmas Triangle Gatefold

At first glance you might not think this stamp set has the potential for a Christmas card theme, but it does! With a little imagination I transformed this image by adding an accessory and a holiday greeting.


Those beautiful gold faceted stars are part of the “Most Wonderful Time” Product Medley – another of my favorite products offered in this year’s holiday catalog. I used the black journaling pen to create a ‘string’ from her fingers to the stars.


The inside of this fun fold card has plenty of room for a family Christmas photo, too! It’s a card that your receiver will admire all through the holiday season.

Whether for Christmas, retirement, birthdays, invitations or announcements, you’ll enjoy making this fun fold card!
