1. Take the Gatefold Card blank and cover inside with 14.5cm square of pattern paper. Cut 4 14.5cm x 7cm pieces of pattern paper to cover the 2 inside panels and 2 outside panels, adhering paper with d/s tape or runner.
  2. Cut pattern paper approx. 9.5cm x 5.75cm and mat onto a slightly larger piece of white card using d/s tape.  Position this panel in centre of card where it spans both left and right panels equally.  Add adhesive only to the back of the half that will adhere to left hand side panel. Left panel will open with the sentiment attached.
  3. Die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment from gold card (or from pattern paper in the box) Adhere sentiment onto a piece of white card using the glue pen.  When dry trim down to approx. 8.5cm x 4.5cm and mount onto centre panel of card using 3D foam pads to raise it a little.
  4. Cut 2 large and 2 small pennant shapes from pattern paper (easy to ‘fish tail’ ends with scissors if you don’t have dies) mat each pennant onto slightly larger white card and adhere to card front as shown, using 3D foam pads to raise them.
  5. Decorate inside panel with a circle or square of contrasting pattern paper. Optional extra:  add 2 little deer using the glue pen.  The deer can be found on the Merry Christmas die, simply die cut, trim them off and glue them in place.
  6. To finish, add gold sequins along each pennant on the card front using a clear drying glue.  Your sentiment can be written on the back of the card or cut a small panel of white card and attach to the back or the inside.
