Interlocking gatefold cards are incredibly fun and easy to create. The great thing about this card design is you can use so many different dies and have great results.
With each card ideas below I will make sure to share the measurements so you can recreate these cards if you’d like.
The first card I have here is using the Layering Circle dies from Stampin’ UP! as the interlocking element. This card also features the fun and youthful stamp set, Circle Celebration.
Card 1 Tips & Instructions:
The card base is cut at 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 2-3/4″ from each end.
Basic Black layers are cut at 2-5/8″ x 4-1/8″ and the Daffodil Delight layers are cut at 2-1/2″ x 4″. Die cut 3 Basic Black circles and layer together.
Love is in the air, just around the corner is valentines day. So I thought I would throw a fun valentine in the mix.
Card 2 Tips & Instructions:
Card base size is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score each end at 2-1/8″
Cut two Daffodil Delight cardstock pieces at 2″ x 5-3/8″. Two pieces of True Love designer series paper at 1-7/8″ x 5-1/4″. Cut the inside cardstock piece at 4″ x 5-1/4″ and glue to the inside of the card.
Ok, this is a fun card size. The finished card size is 4″ x 7″.
Card 3 Tips & Instructions:
For the card base cut two pieces of Basic Black cardstock at 6″ x 7″, score both pieces of cardstock at 2″ on the 6″ side. Glue the two pieces of cardstock together in the back.
For the front panel layers cut two pieces of cardstock at 1-7/8″ x 6-7/8″. Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3-3/4″ x 6-3/4″ for the inside of the card.

Wow, you were busy! Love, love the cards and the fun golf. Now to get my creative juices flowing. I love hearts but I think my favorite is the circle but I also like the size of the second card.
