EASY Gatefold Box Cards

Hi everyone, earlier this week I shared this Easy Gatefold Box Card.

I had a few requests to make this style and saw how they were made from Dawns Stamping Thoughts videos.

I added extra panels either side to turn mine into a gatefold style, however they are optional with the card looking lovely without them.

They are so easy to make and if you enjoy making Gatefold cards then why not give this one a go as it has that little something extra!

When I saw this style I knew I wanted to do more with the box section, so I added a tab to create a floating element and make the footballs pop-up! I will also be popping a gift card in the middle when I give this to my Brother In-law.
