Friday Mashup Gatefold with Numbers

Yeah, its Friday! Its the start of a 4 day holiday weekend and I plan on just bumming around all weekend!

This weeks challenge comes to us from Kim and let me tell you, it made me think. She wants us to make a gatefold card, make a project that incorporates numbers OR you can MASH it up and do both!

I'm not a fan of gatefold cards, I'll be honest. I hate anything where I have to figure out measurements or really think about what I'm doing. I think I've only made 1 other gatefold card in my life and it was a Christmas one so I figured why stray from what I know? This way I knew I could also easily incorporate the number 25, for Christmas.

I decided to keep my card nice and simple because I think when you have a busy background like I do with this DSP you dont need a bunch of other stuff cluttering up your visual. So my card is pretty clean and simple, and to the point! Make sure you go to the Friday Mashup site and play along, and check out all the inspiration from the rest of the design team. As usual you can see I went in a totally different direction than everyone else, LOL.

Once again, here is the challenge from Kim:

Create a card that uses a "Gatefold" .

Create a card that uses "Numbers". (stamped, die cut, chip board etc)
or "Mash it Up!" and create a "Gatefold Card using Numbers"!



  1. Hi Lisa, great Christmas card, very simple design and very effective.

  2. Lisa, I'm happy to give you a stretch and challenge! LOL I don't do these often either, but they are fun! (Trying to convince you here!) I love the Santa image, and it looks great over that dsp!

  3. That is such a great Santa image, very nice card.

  4. A very simple but great Christmas card Lisa. Love what you did with it.

  5. Great job Lisa Love that Santa Image. Oh and just to let you know I don't do many gatefolds or other types of folds and stuff either, so it was fun just to do it again as it's different. You did a great job on it.
    Hugs Cindy

  6. This came out great.. I love what you did with the inside too. I think your right you need a simple image with that DSP or it'd get to jumbled up. Stop rushing Christmas though Missy!!

  7. Oh so cute Lisa! Love this set and I have it in mt stash! Such a great idea.

  8. Fabulously finished card. Love the Santa and the ribbon. x
