Today is Thursday which means it’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge! This week’s challenge is as easy as ABC!
When I created this challenge board I had no idea what I was going to create. I just picked an element for each letter A-I. Today’s card idea came together quick & easy as I started thinking about what I could create. You know how I LOVE fun folds so I started with that and then thought what I could make that would be angled and that’s where I started…An angled double gate fold.
To make this fun fold start with a piece of designer series paper that is 5 1/2 x 12. Score on the 12″ side at 2, 4, 8,and 10. Mark the center on each 5 1/2″ side at 2 3/4. Then make diagonal cuts from the top of the DSP at the 4″ and 8″ score lines to the 2 3/4″ mark on each side.
This is what is should look like after you cut and fold on the score lines.
I used other elements from the challenge board to decorate my card. My daughter just turned 20 so I used the Number of Years Stamp Set to mark the occasion. Using a circle die cut to stamp and heat emboss my greeting combined 4 elements from my board. I made a belly from a 1 x 9 1/2 piece of whisper white cardstock which I wrapped around my card and adhered in the front. I also adhered some coordinating Fresh Fig Ribbon with Tear & Tape then I attached the layering circles to the belly band with Stampin Dimensionals.
The inside of my card offers some inspirational thoughts for my daughter’s milestone birthday. I used the Fresh Fig Stampin’ Marker to write my message and added a bow using 1/2″Finely Woven Fresh Fig Ribbon. I love the way this card can display on a desk, bookcase, or mantle.
I used the same Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper to decorate the flap on the envelope.

Beautifully done Jeanie. You’ve demonstrated what I love about Gate fold cards. They can be simple or intricate so they’re a great choice for every occasion.
Lovely card, my daughter is turning 40. I will case this for her birthday this weekend
Great gate card. Look at that giddy bow ready to greet the birthday girl. Oh so fun and so well done. Great instructions.
