[Video]How to Make a Fun Artbooking Gate Fold Cricut Card

I saw this sneaky gate fold card on youtube and had to try it myself.  

Why is it sneaky?  Because although it looks like a normal gate fold card, it isn't.

I call it the "faux gate fold card" - check it out below:
How did I make this?  I have a video showing below how to do it. 

Here are the written instructions (it's really easy!!):

1) Cut card base at 7-1/4"x 4-3/4" and score at 4-3/4"
2) Cut top square piece at 7-1/2" x 3-3/4" and score at 3-3/4"
3) Cut panel pieces as follows: you will need TWO 2-1/4"x4-1/2" pieces and ONE 2" x 4-1/2" pieces to make the panels for the base of the card and the inside.  You will also need a 3-1/2"x3-1/2" piece to layer on the inside square layer.
4) Apply panels.
5) Add square piece, centered on card base.
6) Decorate.

Now, how did I decorate it?
I used the CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge Bundle (which you can buy HERE) which you can see below. 

I made the following cuts with that cartridge:
Now, because I was using real dial size, the image above wouldn't layer properly without using the Cricut Craft Room.  

So, I cut the image shown above in various colors of glitter paper and just peeled off the pieces I didn't need. Then, I hand pieced it and glued it together (see video for more detail).

On the inside, I used the Happy Autumn Stamp set shown below (click HERE to purchase) along with olive and goldrush Close to My Heart inks (click HERE to see more about inks).

[Video]Halloween Artiste Cricut Treat Test Tubes

Today's fun Halloween treat test tubes were made using the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge for the bases and paired with some plastic test tube treats.

Here are the cuts (see the video below on how to assemble the treat bases):



Here's a side view of the treat holders.  Be sure to use black paper with a solid core - two of mine had a white core and it doesn't look very good (sorry!):
I used this fun Close to My Heart Halloween label stamp set (click HERE to see more about it):

Here are the treat tubes (see HERE for more info):
