Now let's get this party started!!
The inspiration for my project came from Dana's Standard Gatefold Card video...

This project was so super simple! Once the base of the gatefold card was made, embellishing was a breeze!


Here 's my version of this project...

I just followed Dana's easy peasy instructions to make the gatefold base...

Using a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of card stock and a scoreboard, I made a crease at the 2-1/8"  and again 6-3/8" marks with a bone folder.

Folded the panel flaps inward and creased.


I used paper from DCWV's Happy Day Stack for the card base and panels. I embellished my panel flaps with these cool flower panels from Stephanie Barnard's Half Card Panels Die set and "glitterfied" a chipboard panel underlay using my 3" sticker maker and ultrafine glitter.

I die cut a couple circles and mounted them on more chipboard. Then,
I used more paper from my Happy Day Stack to create the sentiment for the middle "closure".

Supplies Used
Stephanie Barnard's Half Card Panels Thinlits (Sizzix)
Stitched Circle Dies (Pink and Main)
 Light Green Ultra Fine Iridescent Glitter 

I really hope you liked my version of Dana's Gatefold Card! I had so much fun making it, especially because I got to play with glitter! This girl LOOOOVES GLITTER!! LOL
