The gate fold explosion card has been “trending” lately. And when my upline, Susan Campfield sent us the supplies to make one, I realized I absolutely must share this fun fold with all of you. It’s easy and fun to make and is impressive to open.

I just showed live on YouTube about an hour ago the tips and tricks for creating this fun fold with products from the Magic In This Night Suite: Hallows Night Magic Stamp Set, Halloween Magic Dies, Magic In This Night Designer Paper, Metallic Mesh Ribbon, Iridescent Pearls, Cobwebs Embossing Folder, and Black Glitter Paper. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can get updates when I share and go live).
