I’m excited to show you how to make a gorgeous double gate fold card today with a NEW stamp set and beautiful new paper too. This is a fun fold card that will cheer anyone up! I have been doing so many fun folds lately that I feel like it’s “my thing”! Are you loving these handmade fun folds too?
As I was making the video for today’s card I dated myself by calling the beginning of this card a hot dog fold! I laughed at myself because when I started with Stampin’ Up! over 22 years ago that’s what we called it! Really it should have been called a hot dog bun fold!

I have always called myself a Bold Bright Colors gal and the Painted Posies Designer Series Paper (DSP) was calling my name! When I opened the package I was so happy and I had all kinds of card making ideas swirling in my head–this gate fold card being one of them! While Stampin’ Up! has done a great job showing the patterns of DSP photos still don’t do it justice!
The new January – June Mini catalog launched January 3 and it is FULL of beautiful Designer Series Papers. This double gate fold card works great with this paper. If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and would like a catalog you can request one HERE
As always I love sharing the measurements with y’all! To help you with this double gate fold card I also made a video. If you are like me it is helpful to see how something is done. YouTube is AWESOME for that!
Double Gate Fold Card Measurements
- Card Base – Whisper White – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 2 1/8″, rotate and score at 2 1/8″ again
- Peaceful Posies DSP – Purple design – 1 7/8″ x 5 1/4″, Posie pattern – 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″

On my video I remind you not to use Stampin’ Blends on the inside of this card since the Blends bleed thru. On this card I stamped with StazOn then colored with Stampin’ Write Markers.
More Double Gate Fold Card Inspiration
I couldn’t stop making cards using the double gate fold! It’s so fun and easy! Now I have three cards with different sentiments ready to send when needed!
Don’t forget to decorate the inside! When your cardstock is dark add a layer of Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/2″.
On the card below I used the New Heart Punch Pack from the Mini Catalog. Loved how they layered so well!
