Snowflake Gatefold


This Christmas card was inspired from a Craft Roulette bonus challenge from week #36. I had made a 5x7 card that was very similar so I decide to make this one 6x6. If you prefer a 5x7 card the measurements for both sizes are listed below. This card goes together pretty quickly because the embossing folder does all the work for you. The 2 cards are also a little different in the way the front panels are placed. The 5x7 has panels that are centered on each side of the gatefold so they can be cut then embossed. The 6x6 is centered to the card center so it is embossed first then cut in half at 2 7/8. If you would rather have an equal border then cut 2 papers 2 ¾ x 5 ¾ and center them on each side.
