Gilded Autumn Gate Fold Card


OOH fall, oooh Mint Macaron, ooooh this card- they all make me happy! It is silly but really there is not anything I don’t love about now, except how fast it seems to go :(.

Fancy folds are not really my thing but this one is not too far out of my comfort zone and it has a little trick to make the technique work. It was a challenge card so cross your fingers for me but even if it doesn’t net me 1st place it is a winner in my book!

The steps below will walk you thru how to make the card and the design is super easy to repeat on other holidays… think balloons for a birthday, cake for an anniversary, flowers for sympathy, and animals for kids.

  1. Cut  a sheet of cardstock in half on the short side of the paper to create a 4 1/4 x 11 piece to create the card base.

  2. Score at 2 3/4 from each edge and fold so the sides meet at the center.

  3. From the remaining cardstock cut a 1 x 11 belly band. The width can be increased if the sentiment is larger.  Wrap belly band around the wide portion of of the card    ** the ends will not meet** so that the opening is where you wish to place the largest cropped piece.

  4. Cut 2 pieces measuring 2 1/2 x 4 of designer series paper and adhere to the card base with Stampin’ seal.

  5. Crop the shapes (leaves in this card) that adhere the belly band together. For example here I used Stazon to stamp a leaf design on Brushed Metallic cardstock and cropped. Then I placed Stampin’ Seal on the belly band edges before placing the leaf to connect the edges. Here is where the technique comes in.

  6. Make sure to arrange your pieces so there is enough room for the sentiment to be stamped. Stamp the sentiment
