Tips for Handmade Gatefold Cards
A great gatefold with a surprising closure!

How do you like that gold shine? It’s the More Dazzle Specialty paper. and it’s stunning against the bold black card.

The gang decided on the red “berries” rather than gold ones and I think they were spot on. What do you think?

Want More Wreath Inspiration?

This bundle is one I’ve been playing with lately.

Seeing I love wreath cards, this is perfect for me!!

Not only does it have wonderful greetings in a mix of fonts, the dies are delicious! Two detailed dies, one with berries (like we used today) and one with pretty snowflakes. Plus the die to cut out the trees too!
