[Video]CTMH Artbooking Autumn Tree 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 handpieced 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).
I also used the Huntington Paper Pack shown below, which you can get HERE. 
Want to see how to make this project?  Check out the video below (click HERE if you can't see the video):


Did you know you can get the CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge and SEVEN stamp sets for just $114 (that's only $15 more than the regular Artbooking pricing of $99).

  2. Just beautiful! Want to use that creative fold!
    No, I just don't think fall cards are for me. However, maybe one or two for that special someone. I'd rather start thinking about Christmas cards at this point.
    Thank you for the inspiration!

  28. Beautiful card! Thanks for providing written directions and photos in addition to the video. I don't make fall cards myself, but I think they are so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  29. YES,I Iove to do fall/thanksgiving cards! I live in Florida, so we don't get much of the fall atmosphere in the fall months, but much later. My family, though, do live in places where leaves fall, temps get chilly, and sweaters are happily worn. Because I miss out on all that, I love to make fall cards to send to those who are blessed with those cool days. The colors remind me of where I came from and are a great departure from the bright colors of our 'almost' perpetual summer. I don't send a lot of them, but I do enjoy making them and sending them to my kids and extended family.

    Thanks Joy.

  35. Hey Joy,
    Your not going to believe this, but your faux gatefold card actually has a name. It's actually called a Joyfold card, (not sure why, but). How fun is that!!! LOL!
    I absolutely LOVE making Fall, Autumn, Harvest, and Thanksgiving cards! Beautiful colors, great scenes and themes, my favorite time of year, TFS!

  68. I love the look of fall cards but don't have many people to send them to. I make cards for Thanksgiving to give to all my family members at dinner. I have all intentions of making Halloween cards to give to me nieces and nephews but never seem to get them made in time. With all this inspiration, hope to make and send lots of cards this fall . Thanks for the great ideas !

    ReplyDelete
  69. Love creating Fall cards and Thanksgiving invitations (already done) but my family thinks it's a waste of time and I should just send them the date and time in an email!! UGH!!! It's so frustrating since I want to use all my beautiful cartridges and all the tips and tricks you so brilliantly show.
