Today I am showing three different card folds while still keeping the rectangle shape of the card. These folds are so much better because these will fit in standard envelopes than other folds that make things very complicated. Today I’m featuring the Gatefold Card, Dutch Door and Clear Window ideas.
You can see all these cards come to like in a full video tutorial.
I love Gatefold cards for their simplicity and elegance. There is just something special about creating a belly band to go around a card.
For some reason I’ve been creating a lot of these cards lately. Belly Bands can be so elegant, I just adore them. As I mentioned, the Altenew Peony Dream 3D Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) seems to be sold out but I have several other flower dies listed below.
I also find that many different card folds don’t leave a lot of space for a personal message and that’s why I love all three of the folds created today.
Dutch Door Fold
Another favourite because you don’t really need any exact measurements and you can personally alter a lot of elements. It also gives me a chance to pull out my patterned paper which I rarely get to do these days! I used the Butterfly Paper Collection, 6×6 Paper( ELH ).
