Crossover Gate Fold: Add Interest To Your Fun Fold

The Crossover Gate Fold card is easy to make and just one of the many versions of Fun-Fold cards! Because I love Fun-Folds, I am always looking for either new ways or to revisit ways, I have made them in the past. One of the reasons that I like the Crossover Gate Fold is that it allows you to focus on the use of Designer Series Paper rather than a specific stamp set. Today’s cards show three variations of the same design. The card in the video focuses on the use of Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper and the Charming Sentiments Bundle. Further down in the post, you will see two, additional, Crossover Gate Fold cards.

The video below provides the instructions. Further down in the post, are the measurements, supplies and written instructions. I would love to hear from you, leave me a comment below and let me know which is your favorite!!
