Double Gate Card

Happy Hump day!!!!!

Today's share is an oldie but goody fold.  The Double Gate Card.  This fold is a classic! It's an easy... and i mean easy, fold to do and it just gives your card a little bit of a different look without it being difficult to do.

Above is the what the card looks like from the outside.  Very simple, pretty... held together with a belly band.  What is a belly band you may be asking... it is a strip of paper that is normally i cut mine about 1" to 1 1/2" in thickness and then you wrap it around your card, not making it too tight, so that the band will hold together your "gates" and keep your card closed.

For this project you are going to need piece of normal size card stock cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".  You then want to score (on the 8 1/2" side) at 2 1/8" (which is the second little mark after the 2" mark on your SU! trimmer) and then at 6 3/8" (which is 2 spots before the 6 1/2" mark). 

For my DSP i used the Floral District DSP, which sadly is now retired. I made this card awhile ago and just forgot to post it, lol.  Oops!!!  The DSP that you are going to need for your flaps are cut at 2" x 5 3/8" and then the Whisper White strip that i used to put my image on, from the set Field Flowers is cut at 5" x 1 5/8" (the 5/8" mark is 2 spots after the 1/2" mark).  Then when you open your card it will look like this...

It's as simple as that!! Pretty cute huh? I love the Field Flowers stamp set. It again is an oldie but goody.  Here is a closer look at the entire set:

It a 2-time stamp set, at least that is what i call them, lol, which as we all know i LOVE!!!

Well friends, that's all for today's share.  I hope you enjoyed and you all have a splendid, blessed day!!! Until next time...
