Thanksgiving Slimline Gatefold

Thanksgiving is a little over a month away!  I’m actually looking forward to having our small, traditional family dinner…something normal for a change!  My card, however, is certainly not a ‘normal’ slimline card — it does have a surprise element to it.  I kept it very simple, but there’s so much you can do to embellish upon this card base!

For my card, I cut a piece of kraft cardstock to 8 wide” x 9 high” and scored 2″ on each side which left 4″ for the card center.   I then cut small panels for the front (2″ x 4″ for the cardstock and slightly smaller for the pattern paper).  Each small panel was then adhered to the front card flaps; the first small panel was adhered to the left, the next small panel to the right flap and so on leaving a 1/4″ in between the small panels.  When the card is closed, the panels fit into each other.

For the inside, I cut one pattern paper with one of the Fancy Scalloped Nesting Slimline Dies and brown cardstock with one of the Distressed Edge Slimline Nesting Dies.

All the adorable images are from the Thanksgiving Gnomes set!
