I have a Doily Gatefold Cut File for you today, it includes the gatefold card base and the layering pieces too, one square for the inside and two semi-circles for the front. The Doily Gatefold could be used as a gatefold card or as an invitation envelope as I did with the floral versions I made previously here and here. To hold my floral versions closed I added some ribbon and tied a bow but to hold today’s project closed I used a belly band instead which easily slips on and off. So not only do you get to chose what you use it for, you also get to chose how to hold it closed, fun! :)
I cut my card base 11 inches long to form a 5.5 inch card, I used A4 ivory cardstock and the layering pieces were patterned paper. To make the belly band I took the remaining piece of ivory card from the A4 sheet, I cut it down to approx 1.5 inches wide, I wrapped it around my card and glued the 2 ends to form a band. I cut more of the patterned paper and added a piece to the front and another to the back to hide the join in the card. I wrapped some seam binding around the band and tied it into a bow then glued a metal/pearl decoration into place.
As this type of card isn’t very stable, the stand from my last post comes in very handy :)
