My card today is a gate fold card with a unique opening. The opening is created by using a die in the opposite direction with the “blade” side facing up. One makes the gate fold base as normal. Then sandwich the die with blade side up on the card’s inside. Position the die on the section where the bird is at. (decorate the inside of the card after die cutting.

Hi Everyone! I am honored to be a guest designer for Splitcoast Stampers today! This card is a Pop Out Explosion Card. And while it looks complicated, it’s easy to make!
When closed, it measures 4-1/4 x 4-1/2 so it will fit into an standard card envelope for mailing!
I made them with my team last month! If you are a stamping enthusiast, like us, you may wish to take advantage of the Starter Kit. Click here for all the details! My team loved this project and commented that they thought it would be really hard to make but it’s NOT! Many said how easy it was.
