Fall Slimline Gatefold Card

Fall is in the air and through the changing colors of the leaves! I am sharing a seasonal gatefold card inspired by the Slim Fall Sunflowers Cling Rubber Stamp from Stampendous. Hoping to get you in the moody so you will also create and spread some seasonal cheer. Let’s get started!

Fall Slimline Card Basics

Start with cutting one 3.5 x 8.5-inch piece out of Kraft cardstock and from the same cardstock, cut a 3.5 x 9.5-inch piece. Score the 3.5 x 9.5-inch cardstock on the long side at 0.50-inch on each end. Then stamp the Slim Fall Sunflowers Cling Rubber Stamp image between the score lines.

On the stamped panel, cut 3-inch from the scoreline on the right side. Apply E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra on each scored line and secure to the ends of the 3.5 x 8.5-inch card panel. Now you have formed your gatefold card base.

Card Front Embellishment

On a piece of white cardstock, stamp the Slim Fall Sunflowers Cling Rubber Stamp image and color the left side of the image with watercolor pencils or any color medium you like. Then fussy cut the colored portion of the image.

Add Crafty Foam Tape 108ft. to the back (making sure not to add over the opening of the card front) and place it on the corresponding area on the card front. The height on this foam tape is just enough to lift the layer without the bulk. Another advantage is you can cut the tape as long or short as your project needs.

Stamp sentiment on vellum and cut in a long strip to cover end to end on the left side of the panel (about 5.5-inches). Adhere to the card front with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine adhesive which is perfect for vellum! Once the adhesive settles, it will be clear. The sentiment stamp is from the Times Together Perfectly Clear Stamps set also by Stampendous.

Inside the Card

For the inside of the card base, I wanted to have a finished look so I added a piece of 3 x 8-inch white cardstock piece and secured it with Creative Photo Corners in Gold.
