To learn how to make these fun-fold gatefold cards, be sure to watch my video. These type of card works with many different stamps and/or dies. I started by making a *bunch* that are all very similar using the Altenew Ornamental Bliss Stamp Set. Then I show two more unique and simple examples at the end.

Here are the cards from my video along with the main products featured. For the full supply list, scroll down to the thumbnails at the end of this post.

Now, I’m semi-retired and have started following you, Jennifer, on YouTube and your blog. As a new beginner, I’m in need of more supplies. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards and techniques! I’m learning so much.

  24. Your work is amazing and I love you spirit of love and friendship. I, too, am a Christian first, then everything else falls perfectly into place. I’m learning so much from your YouTube videos. God bless.
