I always enjoy making cards that don’t open in the traditional way. And gatefold cards are a great option for this! I also like cards with belly bands… so I thought I would combine the two today. Be sure to watch the video to see how easy they are to make!

My first card is approximately 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. The belly band is made from Grafix Platinum Vellum… and has a Pretty Pink Posh Aloha Shaker (SSS | PPP) stacked die cut with a Pretty Pink Posh Sunshine Script Die Cut (SSS | PPP) and Pretty Pink Posh Tropical Birds (SSS | PPP) sentiment. I also added several Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold Jewels (SSS | PPP).

After removing the belly band, the triangle flaps open to reveal a top-folding notecard. I inked the background with my Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes, Gina K Ocean Mist Ink and the new Pretty Pink Posh Waves Stencil (SSS | PPP)… and added a Pretty Pink Posh Everyday Greeting (SSS | PPP) sentiment.

My next card is 4 1/4″ x 5″. This time I added a piece of My Favorite Things Black and White Stripe patterned paper to my Grafix Platinum Vellum belly band. The focal piece features images from the Pretty Pink Posh Tropical Birds (SSS | PPP) and Tropical Toucans Stamp Sets (SSS | PPP)… and a die cut frame from the Pretty Pink Posh Beach Scene Die (SSS | PPP).

After removing the belly band and opening the flaps, there is a notecard with an inked background created with my Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes, Gina K Ocean Mist Ink and the new Pretty Pink Posh Tropical Background Stencil (SSS | PPP).

My third card is also 4 1/4″ x 5″. This time I made the triangle flaps with Grafix Platinum Vellum and Pretty Pink Posh Tropical Frame Die (SSS | PPP). The belly band features the Pretty Pink Posh Hibiscus Flowers Stamp Set (SSS | PPP) and a small “thanks” from the Pretty Pink Posh Sea Friends Stamp Set (SSS | PPP).

When opened, you find a notecard inked with Hero Arts Unicorn White Ink and the new Pretty Pink Posh Tropical Background Stencil (SSS | PPP).

My last card is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4″. The focal piece was made with the fun new Pretty Pink Posh Beach Scene Die (SSS | PPP) and a small “hello” from the Pretty Pink Posh Sea Friends Stamp Set (SSS | PPP). I also stamped Pretty Pink Posh Hibiscus Flowers (SSS | PPP) images with light ink on the triangle flaps.

When opened, there is a notecard stamped with light and the Simon Says Stamp Round and Round Stamp. The sentiment is from the Pretty Pink Posh Life Stamp Set (SSS | PPP).

  1. Absolutely beautiful cards! Thanks for the beautiful examples you always have, and thanks for sharing the instructions in such an easy manner.

  2. Your creativity is endless… love that you used math to figure the length of the diagonal. My favorite die is the beach scene. Thanks for always sharing your time and talent!

  3. Thank you so much for always providing fun and creative ways to create cards. Your videos and card examples are always so helpful. I can always pick up a new tip or trick!

  4. Great and totally inspiring cards, as always. Your ideas and techniques are so helpful. Thanks for sharing your craftiness with us.

  5. Your cards are just beautiful. Put in my first order with the company a few weeks ago and I got several of the shaker dies that I thought were so cute. Now you have given me a new way to work with them, thank you!

  6. Delightful cards, Jennifer. I like the difference of triangles for gatefold cards, even when they overlap a bit. It They add another dimension to the cards by covering the “front” of the card. This also allows the belly band to carry the primary illustration as well. Thanks for sharing this idea that changes things up some from a traditional gatefold.

  7. Another great idea! Thank you for the inspiration and demo-ing the new PPP products. It’s always good to see the products in action … it really helps me decide whether or not the product is right for me. Thank you!

  8. Thanks for the ideas. So I used your idea for a fathers day card. I ended up using an embossing folder colored with maribu crayons blended for dimension. I had these goofy fish stickers that I wanted to use, but couldn’t come up with a fitting idea. Thanks for the help, it turned out super cute as I was able to put 4 generations of “fish” strategically to symbolize his legacy with everyone’s name on a fish; he used to love to fish in his younger years, he just turned 83 exactly 1 week before fathers day.

  9. Just repeating what so many others have said, you are an inspiration. I love the bright colors feels like summer.

    Thanks

  10. These are delightful cards! I’m thinking that, if I send the card to a card maker friend, she can re-use the bell-band!

  11. Great cards! Thank you for the video! I love how I can make a triangle gatefold with supplies I already own. Thank you for all you do!

  12. These triangle gatefold cards are AMAZING!! Thanks, Jennifer for continually inspiring our creativity.

  13. This was just the inspiration I needed to make a 1st birthday card for my niece! :). Thank you!

  14. Fabulous cards, Jennifer! I appreciate you doing the math for all of the different sizes. Can’t wait to try this technique!

  15. Gorgeous projects! I can’t wait to try making this style card. Thanks so much for the tutorial – always love learning new techniques from your videos!

  16. Wonderful cards, Jennifer, and how fun that they open the way they do. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  17. I haven’t seen all the parts of this release but it looks like you used most of them when making these cards. They all look great!

  18. Thank you for inspiring with the beautiful cards that you created using the new releases. I love the triangle gatefold card. I’m making donate lots of cards and this will give me another idea for a base instead of the norm.

  19. Love these colorful fun cards! Thanks for the instruction on this type of gatefold card & featuring products from this great release! Really helps to get the creative juices flowing!

  20. Thanks for the inspiration. I love the bright, colorful tropical flowers and birds on these cards. Can’t wait to make some of my own.
