How To Make:

First of all, we need to make a gatefold card. This is a simple card shape but looks super cool when it is done.

1. Take a 12”x12” piece of card in a complimentary colour or pattern to the free papers. Cut this directly in half to make a long rectangle.

2. Mark the half way point up the longer side of the rectangle (This should be 6 inches) and fold each end towards this point.

3. Using the free paper with the bunny design, cut 2 rectangles measuring 2.5 x 5 inches. (We have accented ours with Dovecraft Coloured Card in Fuchsia)

5. Using the large First Edition bunting die cut 1 triangle out of the deep Purple Easter egg design. (We have accented ours with Gold Dovecraft A4 Premium Mirror Card)

6. Attach this to the gatefold in the middle, making sure to only stick down one side so the card can still open.
