Ornate Garden Gatefold Gift Card Holder

Today's card is a fun fold card called a Gatefold Card. This one uses the new Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Cling Stamp Set and has a gift card pocket on the inside flap so that you can say thank you by giving a gift card to show your thanks.

Here's a close-up shot to show you the gold embossed sentiment detail...
I thought the Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder added a nice touch to really elevate this card a bit. It's so fun and easy and I hope you will try to make one very soon.

Here's a look at the inside...
Card Recipe:
(Don't forget to see the complete product showcase at the bottom of this post)
Cut Your Paper:
Mint Macaron Card Base: 4 1/4" x 11"
Mint Macaron Flap for Gift Card Holder Pocket: 2 3/4" x 4 1/4"
Blushing Bride Layer for Front Flaps: 2 5/8" x 4 1/8" (x2)
Ornate Garden DSP Layer for Front Flaps: 2 1/2" x 4" (x2)
Terracotta Tile Layer for Front Sentiment Flap is cut from the Stitched Rectangle Dies: 2 5/8" x 3 15/16"
Note: For me it is easier to emboss first and then cut the sentiment piece out using the Stitched Rectangles after. I recommend doing this.
Emboss:
1. Place your Terracotta Tile cardstock in your Stamparatus and secure with your magnet.
2. Position your stamps on your Terracotta Tile piece and flip the Stamparatus Plate on to the stamps to secure them in place.
3. Ink stamps up with Versamark and stamp.
4. Sprinkle with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and flick to remove any stray powder.
5. Set with your Heat Tool.
6. Run this through your die-cutting maching using the rectangle that measures 2 5/8" x 3 15/16" from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
Assemble:
1. Lay your Mint Macaron Card Base on your Paper Trimmer in landscape position and score at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4". Fold on score lines and burnish with your bone folder.
2. Take your Mint Macaron Flap for Gift Card Holder Pocket and use your 1 1/2" Circle Punch to punch out a half moon shape.
3. On the front left flap, secure the Mint Macaron Flap for Gift Card Holder Pocket using Tear & Tape making sure to position Tear & Tape as close to the edges as possible to ensure you have room in the pocket for a gift card.
4. Layer Blushing Bride and Ornate Garden DSP Layers on to the front flaps of the card as shown using Snail Adhesive.
5. For the sentiment piece, adhere Snail Adhesive to the left side of the back and secure on the front left flap and you're done!
