Double Pop Up Gatefold Card for Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge

Hello crafty friends ...

Welcome to Karen Burniston's July Designer Challenge:  Theme: "TWO FOLDS" - make a card that incorporates two folds. This could be a side gatefold, a top gatefold, a side fold with an extra card inside, a z-fold, a double easel, etc. Any theme!

I talk about the details in my YouTube video below.

I wanted to make a special card for a friend's special birthday and this was the perfect opportunity!. The front of my Gatefold Card (two folds) has the Crosshatch Circles and also uses the Word Set 2 - Birthday, and the Numbers. Magnets hold the card closed.

In August 2018 I made a Gatefold Card with the Palm Tree Pop Up, which you can see HERE if you are interested. The following year, teammate Frances Byrne created a Gatefold with the Christmas Tree Pop Up instead of the Palm Tree. By then Karen B had released the Family Room Pop Up, so Frances added that as well. So my card today is a mashup of those two ideas! When you open the card, it lays nice and flat to display the pop up Palm Tree and Family Room too.

I LOVE the Palm Tree Pop Up - it's so easy to make and folds down completely flat for mailing.

The Family Room Pop Up is another fun one, and is perfect for these times when people are staying home more to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Note:  I cut the patterned paper card base to 12 x 5" then scored it scored at 3" and 9". Patterned Paper is not sturdy enough for a card base, but I knew I'd need to hide the two holes that die cut into the base for the Palm Tree Pop Up and would be adding card stock & more patterned paper to the front flaps and the back as well.

Check out the rest of the Design Team - their blogs are linked to the right. Karen Burniston will have her project on HER BLOG tomorrow, Wednesday July 8th.

What a great looking card. The living room pop up is perfect for a 'stay at home' card in these times. The gatefold design with two pop up makes this a special card for a special occasion.
