Default TLC496 ~ {Inter}Lock The Gate ~ {08/25/2014}

A couple of months back I chose Gate-Fold cards as my challenge for the WTUI challenge. It was the first time I'd ever tried an interlocking gate-fold, and judging by some of the comments I read, it was also the first for some others. So I thought we'd try that for today's TLC. So - not just any type of gate-fold but Interlocking Gate-Fold is today's challenge.

Ideally you will need two nesting dies - a basic shape is easier (as I discovered the hard way with my ornament ).
If you don't have any dies, you can still play along - it's easy to cut a square, and then cut the centre of it out. When I have to do this, I usually use a pin or my piercing tool to mark the corners of the inside piece - then it's easy to know how far to cut!

I made a quick photo tutorial; first here are the basic steps.

1: Cut and score a gate-fold base in whatever size you'd like.
(My Snoopy one is 4" square finished, so that was a piece of card 4" by 8" scored at 2" and 6".
My ornament card is A2 when closed, so it was a piece of card 8 1/2" wide by 5 1/2" high, scored at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".)
Your piece of card for the base should be whatever height you want the card to be, and twice the width. Then you score at 1/4 and 3/4 the width of your card.

2: You will need two nesting dies to cut your frame and centre. Tape them with low-tack tape or use a magnetic platform to stop them from shifting!

3: Cut your frame and the inset panel from your choice of cardstock or paper. If it's very light, you may wish to back it with thin chipboard (I did for the ornament card).

4: Decorate the front of your card.
Then you can stick the frame on one side of the front; it doesn't matter at all whether you stick the frame on the left and the inset panel on the right or vice versa. Whatever you like... Here I've stuck the frame on the left side.
Apply adhesive to half the back only, and stick it down so that it is centred over the front of the card. The other half will lie over the right side of the card but will NOT be stuck to it.
Remember that the other half of the back will show when the card is open, in case you want to cover it with DP or otherwise decorate it.
Optional - you can use foam dots, or you can stick the interlocking elements directly to the card front.

5: Close the card, and stick the inset panel onto the other side of the card front, using the frame as a guide to show you where to stick the panel.
Here I've stuck Snoopy to the right-hand side.
Again, make sure to only add adhesive to half the back of the panel.

6: Decorate the inside and you're done!



When you've created your card and uploaded it to your gallery, be sure to come back here and link it to make it easy for people to find. Remember to use TLC496 as your keyword.

We have a special gallery set aside for gatefold cards. Simply choose Technique Spotlight from the Main Gallery dropdown options, and Gatefold Cards from the sub gallery options. Don't worry - your upload will still show in your member gallery, but uploading to these galleries helps create a wonderful library of inspiration which is easy to browse.

Here is a link to our gallery for TLC496 {INTER}LOCK THE GATE.

Here's my Snoopy sample ~ TLC496 Happy Dance
Here's my Ornament sample ~ TLC496 Gate-Fold Ornament


If you're not sure how to link your card on the thread here, here's how .

1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

COOL Snoopy card, Sabrina! Like the neat corners and his happy, bouncing image. I have a hard time making more than a one fold card, but I think I just might be able to master this one. Hee! If I am able to, I will surely be giving it a go.

Oh Gabby - I'm sure you can. With no colouring that Snoopy card was truly super-simple and took no more than 15 minutes to make!
Here's a link to the basic Gate-Fold card in the Resources section - and then all you need is to add your two interlocking elements.

Thank you for the photo tutorial, Sabrina. I have seen these types of cards on Pinterest and was a bit intimidated by them. Now I see how easy they can be.

Why am I seeing Sabrina's challenge as post number 17 and all subsequent posts are being number in ascending order? Is this a change I somehow made?

Whatever it was, I'm glad it's fixed.
I know different views are possible, but usually only when you choose them yourself, LOL.

Well it had dawnmercedes as number 1 post and you were number 17! Maybe just the refresh of my reply fixed it. I couldn't figure out how all those posts were responding up to it before it was even posted! LOL

There really are gremlins! Its happening to me in several threads. Sabrina should be nu Ber one but she's at 25 and the most recent poster is number 1! I thought maybe it was chrome but it happens on my phone and I just use a browser there,no chrome.

Good tutorial Sabrina. It took me a while, but all the problems I encountered were of my own making. Here's my card.
