The typical double gate fold card is created using a piece of 5 1/2″ x 12″ designer paper. I thought it was a bit flimsy without a cardstock layer so I tweaked the dimensions to add a piece of cardstock for stability.

PLEASE NOTE: The card pictured here was trimmed AFTER I had that epiphany. You’ll notice the card created in today’s video has a more pronounced diamond opening. Read about the two options in the cutting dimensions below.
