Gatefold Cards · Lock and Pop Cards

Beautiful Lock & Pop Cards

Hi everyone, I’ve made some more Lock & Pop cards, this time in a 6 x 6 version.

These make a nice change to the standard Gatefold card style.

I’ve made two, one using my Butterfly border die and the other without.

The lock system works, by tucking the gatefold panels under the centre topper.

These fold down to a 6 x 6 size and will fit into one of my box envelopes or bouncy envelopes. You can find both in my Youtube playlist here.

On the back you have plenty of space to stamp and write your message.
