So, if you're feeling a little down that World Cardmaking Day has come and gone, then Online Card Classes has the perfect cure for your blues. There's a wonderful Wild Card Class going on over at OCC.
In today's class, Jennifer McGuire shared some techniques for making gate fold cards.
Talk about perfect timing! These last couple of days, I've been making card kits for an upcoming Santa Saturday event at our local library.

The card base is 4.25" by 11", with folds at 3" from either end. This allows for cutting two card bases from a standard piece of cardstock and for the two flaps to overlap.
Pop up dots were attached in a triangular array to the lower half of the circular embellishment. The card closes by tucking the top flap under the bottom flap.
My goal with this card kit was to create a card that tweens/teens would not only like but also be able to assemble rather easily. In addition, I wanted a card that residents of a local senior center would like to receive.
What do you think? Goals accomplished?
Since my sample card will be headed to Send a Smile 4 Kids, I'm going to link this up for the current Early Holiday Wishes 4 Kids. :)
In addition to the new challenge at SAS4Kids, there are new challenges at Cards in Envy and Sparkles Christmas. The current Words 2 Craft By challenge is open for a couple more days. And, there are prizes at Sparkles Christmas and W2CB. Hope you can play along. :)
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
