Altered Gatefold Card (Step by Step!)

This "Gatefold"card has been altered to have 3 interweaving panels on the top. Below is how it looks when open.

To begin:
Cut an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper down to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.
Fold it in half just until you can make a crease mark in the middle, and then fold each side in to meet that crease line. Do NOT fold the paper entirely in half. This way you won't have a line down the middle of your card! 

Cut 3 pieces the size shown below out of white paper. These pieces glue directly to the front of your card.

Cut 3 pieces the size shown below using pattern paper with the colors you want. These will be glued on top of the pieces shown above in step 2.

Once all your pieces are cut, glue them to the card and add your embellishments. 

I am definitely a YOUTUBER at heart and I learn by seeing not writing, so I will encourage you to visit me at my YouTube channel to view the LIVE STREAM and then the archived video for more detailed instruction how this card is put together. 
See you there!!
