Bookfold Double Gate Fancy Fold Christmas Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Talk about traditional! today’s card has it all…… Red, green and gold, poinsettias and holly leaves and berries then a fun, bookfold, double gate fancy fold on top -it looks very impressive but is quite a simple card to make.

  • Base Card: 11 x 4 1/4 Garden Greed Card ~ scored @ 2 1/8, 3 3/8 & 8 7/8
  • Layer 1:2 pieces 4 1/8 x 2 Boughs of Holly Decorative Paper
  • Layer 2: 4 1/8 x 2 Distressed Gold Specialty Paper
  • Layer 3: 3 1/2 x 2 Garden Green Card
  • Layer 4: 3 3/4 x 3 Very Vanilla Card (for front frame)
  • Ink Color: Real Red

The Distressed Gold paper is added to the small left hand panel first, then the Garden Green 3/8 Ribbon (combo pack) is added (see link below) then this panel is firmly stuck down using Tear and Tape Double sided adhesive. I threaded the Flat Jingle Bell Trinket thru an extra piece of ribbon before tying it onto the other strip of ribbon adding a Mini Glue Dot underneath to keep everything in place.

My greeting is from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set and my embellishments were all cut using the Holly Berries Dies

All the other pieces are attached using Liquid Adhesive with a couple of Stampin Dimensionals to attach the greeting to the left hand ‘gate’ and to attach the holly berries.
