Use Handmade Paper to Create A Beautiful Gate Fold Card

Send a little sunshine to someone with this gate fold card made from handmade paper card.  The gorgeous texture of handmade paper adds one of the best elements to any project.  It's great for embossing and die cutting, too!

This card was created by making 3 sheets ( 2 white sheets and 1 yellow) of handmade paper using one of the Papermill kits and the basic instructions.  One of the white sheets had some of the Opal Sprinkles added to the pulp for a little sparkle.  This sheet was used for the die cut piece.   The beautiful pale yellow color was made by adding some of the Tissue Tints to the paper pulp.  Once the sheets were dry, the first sheet was cut to measure 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" and then scored at 2 1/4" and 6 1/2" and then folded on the score lines. They should meet in the middle.   The two yellow panels were cut to measure 1 7/8" x 4" and embossed with an embossing folder and then adhered to the card base.  The inside of the card was finished with a  square yellow piece that measures 3 3/4".

The die cut piece was, then, stamped with a favorite stamp set (this set is from Elemental Doodles) and colored with colored pencils and added to the card base.  A sentiment was stamped on the inside to complete the beautiful look.
