Today I needed to make a thank you card and, inspired by one of the cards I created for the “Specialty Card Folds” eArticle, I decided to make it a Gate Fold card.
Gate Fold cards are tri-fold variations where instead of folding the cardstock base to create three equal width panels, the two outer panels are each cut to half the width of the center panel. This way, when the card is closed, the two outer panels meet in the middle. They open like a gate, hence the name.
I’m working on more artwork for the upcoming VSN “Specialty Card Folds” eArticle again today. This eArticle focuses on cards with more than one fold. This square card is one of the card types that will be covered in the eArticle. Sometimes called a “Triangle Tri-fold”, it is another version of a basic tri-fold.
