I have a pretty Gatefold Card in black and white for you today and as always all the steps are shown so that you can get this look for yourself.
When working with any of the Spellbinders die sets please remember that number one (#1) is always the smallest
Other Supplies :
Take an A4 piece of card and trim along the long side to 15cms and then from each of the short sides measure in by 7.5 cms You should then have a gate-fold card that meets equally in the middle
With die # 8 from Matting Basic B cut one black panel, this is to line the inside of the card.
With die # 5 from Matting Basics A cut another black panel and with #5 Matting basics B cut a patterned panel ... glue these two together for the front of the card and you will have a thin border around the edges
With #7 Matting Basics A I decided to cut another patterned panel to layer on top of the black liner. These can be glued to the inside of the card
For the Gate fold panels at the front of the card measure two black panels and two patterned panels so that they fit one on top of the other with a small border around the edges. Glue them in place
Once you have the inside and the side panels glued in place you can add the topper to the front. Add glue to one half of the panel only and add the panel carefully to one of the gate folds. Adding glue across all of it will glue your gate folds shut .... Ah! Ah! not right !!
With #4 Labels 41 Decorative Accents cut the shape in black. We are going to use the frame but keep the centre part for another project
Stamp and emboss a sentiment and cut it out with die #3 Labels 41
For the panel you need to layer it onto you can use die #3 from Decorative Accents but I chose to use #3 from Decorative Elements because it is slightly larger
Add glue to the frame work panel and place it on the panel at the front and then layer up the sentiment and add that to the centre with foam tape to raise it up.
Result --- one pretty card for any occasion
More tomorrow ...
