Christmas Gatefold Card

Hi Crafty friends :)

Adele here today to share my project with all of you and over on my own blog.

I designed a Gatefold Christmas Card in Studio for today's project, I'll share the file at the end of this post if you would like to download it :)

Sorry for the poor picture quality, mirri card (shiny foil) is not easy to capture well.

I will show you what the file contains, then show how to put it together...so here is the studio screen shot

I cut this on 12x12 gold mirri card stock, the reverse of which is plain white (hence the reverse phrase "Happy Christmas), you'll see why in a minute :)

First you need to join the two door section's together,

Then you need to attach these to the back of the card

When both sides are attached you then add the phrase to the inside of the back piece, I glittered my piece (the reverse of the phrase as mentioned above)

Now I have kept this file simple but it can be fancied up any way you want.

I have made others that have scroll work and lattice ovals etc, so you can adapt this file easily :)
You can get the free file I made HERE

Thanks for stopping by today
Thanks Pam for having me again this month :)

Happy Crafting
