JOY double gate fold

Hey everybody! A big ol’ Happy Tuesday to you all! I hope your week has started off nicely! I’m stoked to be back with another Keep It Simple DT inspiration project created with products from the absolutely amazing Scandinavian Christmas Collection! And you know how I love me some fun folds, so this was definitely a ‘win-win’ kind of project! For this double gate fold, I used a buffalo plaid paper from the 6×9 Cardstock Pack, double-sided paper from the Back to Basics Ruby 12×12 Collection Pack, and an assortment of die cuts from the Die Cut Pieces Alphabits, Santa & Friends and Gnomes. This was definitely a fun one!

I created the card base using the double-sided buffalo plaid paper from the 6×9 Cardstock Pack. To create the front detail on the card base, I cut the top portion of each side of the gate fold off at an angle, flipped the pieces down, exposing the reverse side, and adhered them to the bottom of the gate fold flaps.

I created the JOY focal element by adhering die cuts from the Die Cut Pieces Alphabits, Santa & Friends and Gnomes to a circle die cut from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, and adhered the element to the left side of the card front.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from a red paper in the Back To Basics Ruby 12×12 Collection Pack and a blue paper in the 6×9 Cardstock Pack along with a die cut from the Die Cut Pieces Santa & Friends. I stamped a sentiment from the Santa & Friends stamps in Catherine Pooler Stone Blue ink, and layered the panel on the blue paper.
