Ornamental Pine Gate Fold Latch Card

Today I am going to share with you a card that Terri had for her latest Technique Tuesday.  This technique is called the "Gate Fold Latch".  I have never made one before.  And much to my surprise, they are not as difficult as I thought they would be.  Plus they are a really cool looking card too!!!

To make this card you score a piece of 4-1/4" x 11" card stock just 2-3/4" from each end and fold towards the center. 

She used the ovals and scalloped oval to make this card.  You take the scalloped oval and the the oval that is just a bit smaller and tun it through your Big Shot.  Then take the 2nd largest Framelit and run it through the Big SHot to create a matte for your stamped image.  

Next take the 3rd from the largest oval and cut out your card stock to stamp your image on.  

With the card closed, adhere the Scallop frame to just the top half of the card on the top flap.  Adhere the stamped image to the matte and then adhere the matte just to the bottom of the card only.  

The bottom matte slides over the stamped image and when the card is closed it looks like a large frame around the image.  I am going to be showing my sister how to make this and I'll let you know how it goes.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
