Graphic 45 Gate Fold Card

This gate fold card features Graphic 45 paper. Even the two resin filled bezels feature their paper imagery.

For years I avoided the gate fold card...unless I found it at a rubber stamp convention already pre-scored. I just don't enjoy getting out a pencil and ruler to measure the score lines...and then having to back track to erase the lines.

That has all changed now that I have the Crafter's Companion Ultimate. I can't believe this tool has only been in my studio for a few months. I use it all day and I don't hesitate to make scored cards. See how the measuring has all been done? I scored a perfect gate fold in under 10 seconds.

That gives me all the time I need to work on the card embellishments! I am crafting a group of Graphic 45 samples to share on my blog in the next few days. I love their papers. I used two different sheets with some leaf shaped ribbon to decorate each side of the gate.

For this card I just used double sided tape to attach most of the embellishment.

The resin bezels I sewed into place so that they could be removed and used for another project by the card recipient.

I am in the studio today! Enjoy these crafty blogger links!
