Gatefold card #7 - Flowers & Butterflies

Combine the popular over the edge card with the gate card and a beautiful card unfolds. Now add the flying butterfly with transparent wings to make a standout card for any occasion. That is what this card does.

Gatefold Card #7 available at CraftsUPrint


It is a simple card to make but it does take a full 12" sheet unless you want to reduce the size. This is a standard 5.25" square card. The picture shows just a liner sheet size 5" for the verse. The kit does come with a shaped liner if you wish a different color behind the flowers.

Make the card from card stock using 65# to 110# for best results. I double cut at a lower pressure and slower machine setting when cutting intricate patterns. The fold lines need a good pressing with a folding bone.

Can you see all the different flowers? There are Iris, Daffodils and Roses. Nestled among these are violets.

What's with the name?

In 2012 I became a grandma. My daughter asked me what I wanted my granddaughter to call me. I never thought about this. I guess to keep things straight she could call me Grandma Henry. This might confuse her since she has a great grandma. I told my daughter that Gwen would name me. She did, I'm sure with the help of her mommy. I became Gammy and as she got older the "R" was added. Grammy, Grammy, Grammy.

When I retired I began making more cards. Many of them were with her in mind. My specialty is the popup form of cards. That has led me into a lot of research with the hopes of creating a popup book for my grand "children". This includes my nieces children.
