Pretty 6 x 6 Cascading Gatefold Card

Hi everyone. today I’m sharing another Cascading Gatefold Card, this time in a 6 x 6 size.

This is one of my favourite card styles to date, I think it’s really striking and unexpected when you take it out the envelope.

I made a 5 x 7 version a couple months ago and it’s been really popular so I thought I would share another size.

If you like this 5 x 7 version, you can watch my tutorial here.

I covered this one in my favourite 3D butterfly stickers.

You have space on the back to stamp and write your message.

The card is secured with a belly band.
