Stampin’ Up! Surprise Gatefold Card

Stampin’ Up! Gnome for the Holidays Surprise Gatefold Card Video Tutorial

August 5, 2020

I was never really drawn to GNOMES but the Stampin’ Up! Gnome for the Holidays
is just too darn cute!!!

I am now a Gnome lover!

This card was inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s Surprise Gatefold Technique,
I modified mine a bit to make it even easier!

Check out my video showing how to make this easy card:

NOTE: Be sure to line up your pattern on your Designer Series Paper on each side of the gatefolds.I fixed mine in my photos but you will notice I had the paper upside down and the plaid pattern was not lined up!!! Also, to center the gnome on the right gatefold so it is covered by the left larger square, turn him over onto the larger left rectangle not upside down!

I just love the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint! Fun, fun, fun!

Some cuties on the inside to finish the card:)
