Today I have a twisted gate fold featuring the He's All That stamp set and the He's the Man Designer Series Paper. I love a paper with small images and this DSP answers the bill! It's a great overall man paper but probably it's not just for men. It's appeal could be wider of course.
This card is smaller than the usual card. You might wonder about mailing it. It will fit in the normal A2 card that we use in the USA.
Start with a base of Early Espresso that measures 4 1/4 x 7 1/2. Score at 2 1/2 and again at 5. There is some diagonal scoring as well. I do have a video below showing how to do the scoring. For each of the end segments the diagonal goes in the same direction. At the left start in the upper left corner and end in the lower right. At the right start at the upper left as well and end in the right corner. Use the cutting well on the Stampin' Trimmer. Refer to the video.
The end sections will be folded with mountain folds. At the left fold back and on the right fold down.
Now we have the basic fold. Easier than it looks. You will need 2 pieces of the He's the Man Designer Series Paper. They measure 2 1/4 x 3 7/8. Cut the paper diagonally. For the paper with directionality start at the upper right and cut down to the corner. It will go on the card behind the flaps if that helps with a visual. The other paper has no direction. You can cut it either way.
Glue all the pieces into place.
Use the Stylish Shapes dies to cut the largest circle in Early Espresso and the next largest circle in Sahara Sand. I used the Stamparatus to mount the stamp from He's All That. I traced around the circle on my grid paper. (I made this in a class.) I wanted to make sure that the image was good and dark. Glue the circles together. Add a knot of Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and use the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.
Be careful when using dimensionals to add the circle label. You don't want to adhere the whole card so it won't open. Lay the label on your card to determine where dimensionals should go on the flap.
The inside of the card is Sahara Sand measuring 2 1/4 x 4. The saying is in the He's All That stamp set.
I realize that this is a different kind of fold. I did enjoy making it. Here's the video. I hope you enjoy it.
