Easy Art Deco Gatefold

Hello and welcome back! I have the fastest gatefold card ever that I want to show you today as my DT project for the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog.  You'll be amazed at how this fabulous Art Deco die actually does all the hard work for you! Take a look at this dramatic design that can be duplicated very quickly! 


Tattered Lace Die - Deco Gatefold Card

Sue Wilson Designs - Perspectives - Triple Birthday

Other Products used:  Adhesive Gold gems. 
Papers are; Gold Mettalic Cardstock, White Cardstock, Black Cardstock

Here is the die that helps this Gatefold card come together quickly;
Such a fabulously designed die!  There is not much more to this card, I simply let the die do all the work, and all I really did was assemble the layers and adhere!  So fun!

These are the cuts needed.

Cut and adhere as shown. Then adhere all the layers together and glue to the gatefold card base front. Repeat for the interior of card too.
For the inside of this card - I've decided to leave it blank/mostly white to allow for plenty of space to write apersonal message.

Separate one of the backing panels by cutting along its scored lines - then adhere together again. This allows for extra space helping you close the gatefold card with ease and avoid bulging.

Here is another look... the metallic Gold adds shine and more drama! Perfect for a Birthday Card, dont you think?
Thats it!  Hope you will give this die a try!  :)
