Father's Day Fun Fold Card + Video

Yesterday we saw a Mother's Day fun fold card.  You can see it here.  But we can't forget about dads or the other special guys in our lives!  So let's take a look at how to make a different kind of fun fold for HIM.  At the end of this post is a project sheet with measurements and a supply list plus a video showing how to make this card.

It's called a Gate Fold and this is how it looks closed.  The manly argyle and plaid patterns are Country Club Designer Series Paper.  This combination of Night Of Navy and Garden Green is classic!

The belly band slides off and the card opens from the middle.  Score the card base on the long side at 2-1/8" and 6-3/8" to create the gate folds.  It's still 4-1/4"x5-1/2" when closed and can fit in a regular envelope.

I had some fun with the inside by stamping in Smoky Slate ink the light beacon image around the sentiment.  The images are from High Tide.  I love adding fun touches like this!  Stamping is so fun! ♥

The lighthouse is stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White cardstock and trimmed using Paper Snips.  The Sahara Sand/Night of Navy Twine (just $2.80 right now!) is wrapped three times around the belly band.  The Stitched Nested Labels were cut from Smoky Slate cardstock and the sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.
