Let's make a Gate Fold card

Ok SSSD ladies. Here is our card for the month of October. It is very easy to make. So let's get started.

You will need a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of card stock scored at 2 1/8 & 6 3/8. If you have a scor pal these measurements are marked on the board. 

When you fold it this is how it looks. 
Take 2 pieces of paper 1 7/8 x 5 3/4. This next step is up to you. I sponged the edges or my paper. 

Attach them to the front of the card.

Open up the card and add a piece of cardstock for your sentiment. It can also be decorated if you wish. The piece is 4 x 5 1/4. 

Now you need a shape. It can be a square , circle or whatever you want. I chose an oval and backed it with a scalloped oval. Layer your chosen shape.   Color in your image and attach them to each other.

Put adhesive on only 1/2 of the image shape. 

Attach it to your card. 

Here is the inside of mine.

And here is the outside. Notice I took an acorn and attached it with a pop dot to the front of my card. It is not attached to the image but to the front of the panel. I have it close enough to the image though to help keep the card closed. You could do this with a cut out circle for a sentiment or a flower. 
That's all there is to it. Very quick and easy.
