Shaped Gatefold Cards Project Pattern


I love to make cards where the shape fits the contours of the design. For this month’s project pattern I decided to challenge myself and see if I could start with a Valentine’s card and end up with 6 different themed cards.

I have to admit it was a lot of fun and once I got started Snowman-cardit was hard to stop! The gatefold card design enabled me to rotate the card in 3 different directions making it easy to come up with all kinds of ideas. I have given you six different messages to add to the fold out flap, but please feel free to adapt this to fit your needs.  I imagine that you will discover even more ways to use the card base for other fun card projects.

Pazzles Project Patterns make it easy to create projects in multiples with just a few clicks when opened in the InVue software. If you need a refresher on how to use these Project Patterns you can find more information here.

Depending on which software you are using, you will need to follow the instructions below to download the Project Pattern files.

Have Fun!
