Gate fold cards are easy to make and did it ever make my day brighter to create this unique card fold! Now I get to share it with you. I’m also excited to share that this is part of a new series in my card making collection called Imagination Station! In this series, I take older cards and older videos and freshen them up for a NEW card idea. My first video in the series is this gate fold card. 

I love gate fold cards because they are unique and like nothing else. Recipients just love fancy fold cards!

I am sharing Imagination Station over the summer on YouTube Live and I would love for you to join me. Each Thursday I will be LIVE on my YouTube channel (click here to find it)

THURSDAYS on YouTube (Connie Stewart) at the time below:

  • 10am pacific time

Can’t make it? No problem! I will be sharing here on Simply Simple Stamping after the Live is over so you won’t miss a thing.


Now let me share with you the cards from today’s Live. I created this “You Are Amazing” card with Stampin’ Blends and I tried a new technique that I will teach you. The colors of this card made my heart happy. I hope the friend I send it to will be happy too.
