Sea Turtle Angled Gatefold Card Tutorial

ANGLED GATEFOLD CARD

Last week’s trip to Mexico was nothing short of magical, and I’m thrilled to share a piece of that magic with you through my latest crafting adventure. Amidst the sun, sand, and waves, the highlight of our vacation was undoubtedly the enchanting experience with sea turtles swimming right by our side. It inspired me so much that I couldn’t wait to bring those memories to life through my crafting.

Inspiration from Nature
The serene beauty and grace of the sea turtles were mesmerizing. As these majestic creatures glided effortlessly alongside us, I felt a deep connection to the ocean and its wonders. To keep this memory alive, I immediately turned to the perfect tool upon returning home—the Stampin’ Up Sea Turtle Stamp Set. This set captures the essence of the sea with its beautifully detailed turtles and accompanying marine life.

The Sea Turtle Stamp Set
The Sea Turtle Stamp Set is a true gem for any crafter who loves nature. It features a variety of ocean-themed images including a large and a small sea turtle, a starfish, a sand dollar, and a delightful school of fish. Each stamp is intricately designed, allowing for stunning layering and texturing effects in your projects. Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or just starting out, these designs offer endless possibilities to explore your creativity.

About the Angled Gatefold Card
For this project, I chose to create an Angled Gatefold card, which adds a unique twist to the traditional gatefold style with its asymmetrical opening. This design complements the fluid, natural movements of sea turtles and adds an element of surprise and elegance to the card.

Making the Card
Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with making an Angled Gatefold card—I’ve got you covered! Below, you’ll find a link to a free PDF with step-by-step instructions, measurements, and a complete list of supplies needed. Plus, for a more hands-on learning experience, check out the video from my previous class on how to craft this intriguing fold.

I hope this tutorial sparks your creativity and brings a little bit of the ocean’s splendor into your crafts. Happy crafting, and remember—the possibilities are as vast as the ocean itself!

Happy crafting!
