Rain or Shine Gate Fold Pop Up Card

The Rain or Shine Collection of stamps, designer series paper, and embellishments are so cute for this Rain Or Shine Gate Fold Pop Up Card!!  It’s “springy” and full of designs that are perfect for the Playing in the Rain bundle.  

This Gate Fold Pop Up Card looks complicated, but easy to create with some easy score & cuts on the base.  The video below walks you slowly & clearly through cutting and scoring the card base.  You will even see a cool tip on how to create a custom label with the Label Me Fancy Punch.

Instructions for Rain or Shine Gate Fold Pop Up Card

  1. Score with the 8″ side along the guide @ 2″ & 6″
  2. Turn to the 5 1/2″ side and cut @ 1 1/4″ on both sides of the card base between the 2″ & 6″ score marks
  3. Turn back to the 8″ side and score @ 4″ on the top & bottom on the 1 1/4″  wide strip 
  4. On the middle panel between the 2″ & 6″ score marks, score at 3″ and 5″
  5. Layer Designer Paper on mango melody & white card stock mats 
  6. Adhere each panel to card front.  Two of the large panels are adhered on the back
  7. Adhere the mango melody panel to the center front.  Add adhesive to the card base panel, not the panel piece
  8. Die Cut or fussy cut images from designer paper  
  9. Adhere bunny to center panel with dimensionals on one side only making sure not to add any to the part that over hangs the panel
  10. Stamp greeting on scrap, punch out with Label Me Fancy punch with greeting all the way over on one side.  Use a sticky note and attach to end that has the most white card stock showing.  This is your lever to reinsert label back into punch.  Insert just close enough to greeting and punch.  This gives you a custom sized label for your greeting and looks so much better to have it shorten up
  11. Adhere label to center panel with dimensionals making sure not to add any where it will over hang the panel
  12. Embellish with the Loose Daisy Embellishments with Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  13. Adhere any remaining designer paper images as desired to front and back of card
  14. Adhere remaining Designer Paper to envelope flap
