Gate-Fold Card

You may have seen this card type numerous places before, but its always nice to see it from different angles and people, so here I am, showing you what the Gate-Fold Card is all about!  Lets Crop!

First we are going to cut our Garden Green Card Stock 11 x 4 1/4
Then, score each end at 2 and then at 3 3/4. {Both Ends!}
You are going to want to fold and fold and fold so that you have nice scored folds.

Here you can see the every which ways it should be folded.

Lets go ahead and make panels for the front. You are going to want to cut two panels with the measurements of 4 x 1 3/4. I used Splendor from Close To My Heart.

You will have about 1/4 of an inch around each side, adhere in the center.

Next we are going to make the inside of the card. I used Colonial White Paper and the {New} Thank You Stamp Set. Isn't this just so gorgeous? My measurements on my Colonial White Card Stock are 4 x 3 1/4.

Now we are ready to do the layers for the front sentiment. From largest to smallest, Follow this sandwich:
Colonial White: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4
Garden Green: 2 1/2 x 2 1/2
Colonial White: 2 1/4 x 2 1/4
Garden Green: 2 x 2 
Colonial White: 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 {Stamp your Sentiment or Character here!}

Those are your layers, attach as shown.

Attach your layered square on ONE SIDE of the card, and there you have it!
