Beautiful Gate-Fold A2 Card Tutorial | Prima Aquarelle Dreams Collection


Thank you for joining me for this Beautiful Gate-Fold A2 Card Tutorial | Prima Aquarelle Dreams Collection. Let's jump right in.


I started by creating my base which I cut to 8 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches then scored at the 2 1/8th mark on both sides to create the Gate-fold base, For the Belly band I trimmed a piece of the same kraft cardstock to 9 3/8 by 1 1/2 inches and scored it at 2 3/8 of an inch on both sides. For the beautiful pattern paper panels, I cut the main panels to 5 1/4 by 1 7/8th of an inch. You will need two of them for each side of the gate, I chose to use an image that goes across both but any fun pattern paper will work. For the Belly band, I cut the pattern paper to 9 3/8 by 1 1/4 and adhered the pattern paper to the base and belly band.


I wanted to add a piece of white cardstock to the inside of the kraft base, I used a stitched rectangle die for some added interest. I trimmed out a few of the Aquarelle Dreams rub-ons, added them onto the white panel, and adhered it to the inside of the base. I used some of the Aquarelle Dreams Ephemera to add more interest to the belly band, then brought in some Opal Gems and a clear Glitter pen to add extra shimmer and shine. I LOVE how this Gate-Fold card turned out and I hope you will give it a try!!
