Halloween Gate Card


Good morning! I succeeded in doing simple yet fun cards for today's class - the girls in this morning's class were done in just over an hour. YEA! I did it! LOL!!!
This gate-fold card can be done for Halloween, like you see here - and inside it says "Happy Halloween" with the jack-o'-lantern face behind it - or without the face, and "Happy Thanksgiving" stamped inside. Class participants have both choices. The pumpkin and faces are the CARVED & CANDLELIT set.
The colors here are Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Garden Green, and Naturals White card stocks, with Pumpkin Pie ink thrown into the mix.
To make a gate card like this one:
Chocolate Chip layer on back - 4.25"x5.5"
Creay Caramel layer that folds - 5.25"x8" - score at 2" and at 6"
The "latch" can be any size you want, to accommodate whatever size stamp you use
It's REALLY an easy card! I hope you'll try it - it looks difficult, but really isn't. :) Go ahead! Take the time to STAMP something! Impress yourself, then pass on your project to bless someone else! :)
