Gatefold Cards

Twisted Gate Fold Card

Hello everyone, today I have these stunning Twisted Gate Fold Cards to share with you.

Stunning Twisted Gate Fold Cards

Using products from this month’s “Taste of Morocco” Hobbybase Club kit, I think these cards look gorgeous.

They fold completely flat and fit in an A7 size envelope.

The handmade rosettes finish these off perfectly and, I think, makes them look more Oriental, with a more Japanese style.

To make these you will need…

1 piece of 9″ x 6″ cardstock, these are very easy to adapt to any size as long as your longest side can be divided by 3 and the hight is up to you.

Score along the 9″ side at 3″ & 6″ this will give you 3, 3″ x 6″ panels.

Then score in the first and last panels from the top right-hand corner down to the bottom left.

1 piece of 2.3/4 x 5.5/8 white card for the centre to put your sentiment on.

1 piece of 2.5/8 x 5.3/8 white card to mat the front twisted panels.

1 piece of 2.1/4 x 4.3/4 pattern paper for the very front.

1 piece of 2.5/8 x 5.3/8 pattern paper for the back.

1 piece of 1″ x 11″, A4 length or 12″ and score along the longest side at every 1/4″

Embellishments to decorate.

My foils, pattern paper and embellishments are all from this month’s Hobbybase Club kit.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.


These wedding cards will definitely stand out from the rest.

  4. Hi there. Greetings from Romania. I would really appreciate if you could share the measurements in centimeters, too. Thanks in advance, I love watching you create these works of art.

  5. Hello, I keep saying I will share in cm but I always forget and i’m so used to working in inches. I will try in future tutorials. Glad you enjoy my tutorials x

  6. Lovely cards and excellent tutorial…thank you! I do have a little tip for you…When you are cutting from point to point with your trimmer, to prevent buckling at the points, just take your blade to the middle of the piece and sink it and just run the blade up and down, no buckling! Hope that helps
