Oh my goodness blog friends, I guess I didn’t know what I got myself into offering up this video tutorial for the Spellbinders Gilded Gatefold Card. I’ve been working on it all week and finally got to the end today. So you know me, I always do new samples when I do a video so today is no different. Using simply precious new stamps from QQuietfire Design, I created a new baby keepsake to announce a birth. I went all girl because you know I jump at any chance to use pink. Rest assured though, the stamp set includes everything needed to switch over to little boy!!
Here’s a peek inside!
On the inside I used Spellbinders Floral Ovals to create a frame where I hung this darling Spellbinders Dresses One (I love those dresses)! All I did to it was wrap ribbon around it and put a flower on it. Then on the right side I typed the name of a the newborn and her birth date. I used Quietfire Design Welcome Little One stamp set and filled in the center with A Baby is a Little Bit of Heaven. Of course the outside of the card is done with Spellbinders Gilded Gate Two and I popped up Spellbinders Gold Labels Four on both the outside of the card and the inside of the card for my sentiment. The dotted embossing is done by Spellbinders Dainty Dots.
The name and date of birth below were printed on my inkjet printer.
I hope you enjoy the tutorial, I show you how to make the Christmas Card first, but once you understand the layout, it’s very easy to do it for any occasion. (Note: the thicker your paper, the more difficult it will be to make the card lay completely flat. Once the bow and embellishments are applied to the front, that will help a great deal).
Here is the video tutorial:

So what did you think about all the new Spellbinders that hit the sneak peek over the last six days? Pretty amazing! Thanks so much for stopping by – I enjoy your visits and enjoy your writings here. Be well and remember, it just the little things
both are beautiful, thanks for the tutorial. I will be making this card for sure, just bought the Gatefold die at the Scrapbook Expo in Duluth, Georgia this past weekend. Thanks you are a great inspiration
So very beautiful Becca.. Love the baby card and of course love the pick. This is just so perfectly lovely and surely to be enjoyed for years to come for the new mom and baby girl will enjoy when she gets older.
OMG this baby card is soooooo beautiful…..your work is just amazing..I have to go and order that spellbinder die…..and try to make this…good thing I have a job to keep paying for all my spellbinders…lol thanks for sharing and for the tutorial…..
Becca, that is such a beautiful card. I have one question: If you printed the name and birth date on your inkjet, what font did you use? If that is one of your fonts, I would love to have such a font for my printer, too. I’ve often thought I wish I had an elaborate font like that for my computer to print with. That way, I would not be limited to just the words on a stamp.
Another beauty of a card Becca and a wonderful tutorial. Thank you so much!
Such a beautiful card. I enjoy your site and learn so very much from your tutorials. Please don’t stop!! That is also one of the most striking fonts I have ever seen. Is it one that can be purchased?
Thanks again. Judy
Becca you did it again!! What a beautiful card and you are a fabulous instructor. I wait eagerly for your posts and of course your videos. You never cease to amaze me with your creativity. God Bless you always.
Another beautiful card. Your work is amazing. Thank you for the wonderful video.
Have not used magnets before. Love this card, thanks Becca for your great help.
Becca I can’t wait to watch this again when I have more time , I just love how you took the gate and turned them sideways ( of course only you would think of that ) I love the welcome baby card you made it into and I can’t wait to make some for some special someones who will be in our family soon. TFS again such a treat !!!
Becca, I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work on our behalf! You are an inspiration to us all! Plus, love the new dies and am working on collecting them now!
Bless your heart, I know that was a job getting the video done for us, thank you so much, been waiting for it since I saw the Christmas card!! AND I love the baby card, gotta have that set of stamps!! I just love your artwork and refer almost daily to your blog for inspiration (sometimes several times a day) and have learned so much from you! Thank you again for this video!!
Forgot to ask! What is the font you used for the birth announcement?
Just such a lovely card that you make it look so easy to do. The magnets were new to me but liked the effect. The baby card is totally awesome ~ I just love PINK just like you. I hope you can tell us what the font is because I think I am the third or fourth one to ask. Very elegant and a lot of time we are all looking for something like this font for the inside. Thank you if you could let us know on that. Such inspiration you give all of us and we do appreciate it.
Thanks so much for this tutorial, Becca! I’m going to try this tomorrow! I Love, love, love, this card!
I love, love, love this gatefold card! So lacey and pretty … thanks so much for the tutorial. Unfortunately, I was only able to find 5 days for the Spellbinders give-away. I’m not sure what happened to the 6th day … I was never able to find it on the Spellbinders blogsite.
Absolutely beautiful Becca! Thank you so much for using the stamps so creatively!
Stunning as usual! Thank you so much for the tutorial. Really helps us who are not so creative and experienced, plus busy, to know what steps to take so that we can have a beautiful card too. I adored the pink baby card! What a treasure for the Mom and Baby. I was born in 1947 and I still treasure my baby book with all the cards my Mother recieved, my lock of hair and foot print.
Do you make sure you have all the pieces cut and embossed before you even start assembling, or do you make the base and then cut and emboss the layers and decorations as you go?
Do you have the card preplanned before you even start or do you decide as you assemble?
Thank you so much for all your help. Sue
Thank you for all the hard work you put into producing this video for us Becca. Your baby card is stunning. And like lots of others I would love to know which font you used. Christine
Astounding Becca, I have been waiting for this tutorial with bated breath since you first posted the card. No that’s insulting calling it just a “card” it is truly a work of art. Thank you again for all the hours you must put in on these video’s. I am sure all your followers like me are very thankful for your generosity in sharing.
Bucket loads of warm bear hugs from Carole in South Australia
OW! Again! You are my favorite designer. Was one of the first to sign up for the Gold club. Missing only one of your cling stamps (don’t care for clear) and when I had to cut down on the number of emails per day, you’re the only designer I didn’t UNsubscribe. Imagine my excitement Sat. when David G. was drawn on the first day.. Sent him a text but he couldn’t get to a computer for over 5 hours. My son won!!! And I’m first on the list to borrow it until I get my own. Sounds like they plan to send them out before the stores get them. Last year when I won Day 7, they didn’t arrive until mid September. Thanks for all your terrific designs. And for showing some more samples from one of the Gold kit dies.
WOW was supposed to be the beginning of the last comment. I have the dress blank but not the gate. I’ll have to get it now. A little late for me to send another baby card as my 3rd great granddaughter was born May 28th. But I’m often late–and this is just too sweet.to not make for her.
Absolut outstanding work here again Becca. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this card and I´m sure, I´m going to use this one quite a few times too.
Thanks sooo very much for sharing all your hard work on these tutorials with us here. I for one really apreciate it very very much. You are a remarkable girl and truely amazing, that´s for sure.I soooooo love all your stunning creations here all the time, and your directions are always sooo awesome too and sooo easy to follow, that I really believe anyone can make such gorgeous work, if they follow your instructions, cause then nothing can go wrong.
Have a wonderful day and I hope, that I´ll one day be able to share as much back with you as you always share with me too.
Beautiful cards! I wondered how you would put a twist to this die!! I want it even more now!
Becca, this is another fantastic design! Thank you soooooo much for your hard work in producing a fabulous tutorial. I hope I can try this technique out sometime because the cards you showcased are absolutely wonderful. Thank you again for sharing your talent with us!
thank you soooo much for the Tutorials: Baby Card and Christmas Card.
i’m amazed at your choices and wanting to make my own for future
use – be it Birthday, Anniversay, New Born, etc.
You’ve really inspired me with all you explanations and DETAILS.
Love those and need them
God richly Bless you Becca,
Thanks for taking the time go do the video for this tutorial Becca. You always make it look so uncomplicated. Can’t wait to do it.
I was recently looking for inspiration for my new baby granddaughters card, I only wish I had seen this card before she came into this world.
Your cards are the most beautiful pieces of art work that I have ever had the pleasure of coming across.
Thank you for your inspirations.
Becca – these cards are not just cards – they are works of art! You wow us every time!
Thank you so much for the superb tutorial. you are so generous of your time and talents.

It’s been quite a while since I have been in my craft room and your project and video are just what I needed to jump start my creativity once again. Your vide is so clear to follow and results in such a beautiful creation. Thanks for taking the time to prepare the video for us, Becca.
Very lovely card and very inspiring for many occasions. Thank you for making the tutorial as it helps to see you assemble these first hand. I, too, am wondering about the font used as it is quite nice. Spellbinders is really getting into some creative dies that can be used with the basics which is marvelous. They could keep doing that as far as I am concerned so we can get more use out of our basic collection shapes. Thanks again for sharing your creativity.
Love these cards! Thanks for the tutorial. We greatly appreciate it!
My Becca you did it again. THE CARD IS REALY WONDERFUL.
Remarkable projects! Just so beautiful to look at and I would imagine fun to make. Your video was clear and convinced even me to think I could produce an elegant gatefold card like this. Truly amazing. Thank you so much for producing this informative video.
Hi Becca from across “the pond”. I so love reading your blog and discovering what what new project you have in store for us. I thoroughly enjoyed your video and think I might just give this a try. Have a great day!
SOOOO BEAUTIFUL BECCA!!!!!!! I STILL don’t know HOW you come up with all these GORGEOUS CREATIONS!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT A GIFT!!!!!!!!!:)
LOVE LOVE your card!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANKS a BUNCH for sharing. Can you tell me where to purchase the little magnets.
Loved your card and video….it’s always a thrill to see your creative projects. So stunning and gorgeous.
Something I saw on a blog recently for adhereing those intricate die cuts was E6000 adhesive now comes in a spray mist and it dries in 1 to 3 minutes and it really does dry clear…some of the glues that profess drying clear still leave a glossy glob where it oozes out from the edges of die cuts. I just cut all my die cut pieces for my project, lay them face down in a shoe box or equivalent, mist them with the E6000 spray adhesive and then use tweazers to place them on my project….it really does what it says it will do and I love it. You do need to follow the instructions on the bottle for cleaning the sprayer when you are finished using your glue so the nozzle isn’t clogged with dry glue….I found it very easy to clean.
I found this spray adhesive at Michael’s and with a coupon got it really cheap. It normally retails for $9.99, so at 40% off it was nothing and I expect a bottle to last a while. Hope you’ll give it a try. I make a lot of cards using die cuts and it has definitely improved the finished look of my projects to not have that shiny residue around the edges.
I really love this design – wil be trying this. Love the font also! Thanks for the videe – it makes all the difference to see how it goes together rather than just reading a description.
beautiful. wonderful use of the “welcome Baby” set. Love all the layers.
Have a great day
Wow, this is to die for.(pardon the pun). Absolutely beautiful card. Thank you for sharing xx
Wow….the whole card is amazing! To do the outside is gorgeous; but, wow, all the treasure’s on the inside too! Totally amazing. thanks for sharing.
PS Thanks so much for the tutorial video. Awesome!!!
absolutely gorgeous Becca….what a beautiful keepsake for the new mom and sweet little one :) ty for the turorial, I love gatefold cards too, but I just love how you used the gatefold die, amazing!!
Thanks so kindly, Becca, for this wonderful tutorial, which convinced me to buy the gorgeous die. Your artistic brilliance always blows me away!
This card is amazing. I can’t imagine the amount of time & effort you put into the tutorial. I never would have thought of using magnets in a card. The FONT is sooooooooo elegant. What is the name of it or where would I find it? I need to get the Spellbinders die so I can try making this card too.
I too am wondering what the font is!!!! :) LOVE this card and will be “stealing” this idea in the near future.
i especially love this sweet card. Because of it, I ordered the stamp set from Quietfire immediately. Thanks so much for sharing!
Becca: Thank you very much for the beautiful cards and tutorial you share with us. You are amazing. God blessed you. Hugs
Just ordered the gate die. This has to be one of my favorites!! It is a card and gift all in one. I love and so appreciate every time you do a tutorial. I know it’s alot of work, but it helps us so much to know step by step how you achieve each look.
I’m amazed how you take a die, turn it and tweak it and make a whole new creation from it’s original intent!!! And then, you choose to share with your readers your process- thank you, thank you, thank you.
Becca, Your cards are beautiful. The video was very good & easy to follow.
Thank you for sharing your talent.
Wonderful video and a magic card. As always Becca you make it all look so easy :)
Gorgeous card. Love the gatefold tutorial. Thanks so much. Your tutorials are always so informative.
Love your cards and tutorials. Your voice is so soothing too. I mentioned on my blog one time that your voice was so soothing that you should read e-books or videos for babies to relax them. Thanks for another soothing, but creative, tutorial.
Absolutely genius…gorgeous cards and wonderful tutorial!!! Thank you so much for showing us how to create these :) Blessings!
Such a beautiful creation and a great tutorial looking forward to giving this a try. Thank you x
Becca, a friend sent me to your blog and i’ve been here before and i am sure i am “following” you through blogger, i’d like to receive your posts via email. Do you have a link for that on your sidebar? I didn’t see it. Thank you.
Great video! Thank you.
Grandma Bonnie, thank you so much for asking!
At the top right corner of the blog, there is a subscribe tab that will allow you to subscribe to my blog posts by email. Looking forward to your company each day!!
Love it!! Esp since my friend just told me she is expecting.
Becca, four years ago my husband suffered a massive stroke a few weeks after his 50th birthday. During the following two weeks he suffered 4 more strokes. Up to that time I was a stamper/card maker and had so much “stuff” I could have opened my own store. After my sweetheart became ill, all of our belonging were auctioned off and 5 months later he left the hospital and we moved in with my daughter. I haven’t made a card since. But then about 6-7 weeks ago I came across your site and I am ready to start again!! You are so very talented and I can’t thank you enough for inspiring me to start making cards again. We don’t have much because I cannot work, (he needs constant care) but God will provide. In the meantime, I want to begin a collection of Spellbinder dies. Which ones would you suggest that I start with? I can probably purchase 2 or 3 to start. Thanks so much if you can respond. I know how busy you must be.
I finally had a chance to check out your card, you always put such great detail into your cards, it is just gorgeous, very sweet baby card!
Morning Becca, This is a gorgeous baby card, I love it.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
PS I’m off to watch your tutorial now, have a lovely day xx
I don’t know how you always come up with a card more beautiful than the last.
Hi Becca – what a gorgeous card! Thanks so much!! Please can you share what printer font you used for the Welcome baby card! Blessings from South Africa xx
Becca…I am sitting here…I need your help!! I have to make a number of sympathy cards and I am beside myself. they are for 18 yr old that was kidnapped and brutally murdered….
how do you even begin to make one card..let alone several??? any ideas??? they need to be elegant and amazing, very religious family, very innocent girl.
you are always the one I Iook at for inspiration…
These are for mother, father, several aunts, family
drop me an email if you can
Your card is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing and showing us how to make it. Your videos are the best. Love all of Becca Bits.
Becca: Thank you so much for the great video on making the Gatefold Card. I just purchased the gilded gate die and now I know what my first card project will be. You put in so much in your videos and they are very easy to follow. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with the crafting world. Can’t wait to see you next project.
Blessings and Hugs from Arizona.
Learn,often, yes, yes, more Becca bits.
1. Both 2. Often 3. Yes 4. NO 5. More tutorials
Hi Becca, I love this card. How clever to join the two gate dies together at the front. You have such an imaginative mind and come up with such unique designs. I love the font you used for the baby’s name and date of birth. Can you let me know what font it is please as I don’t have many stamps with text and tend to print and then cut my sentiments. Happy crafting and God Bless.
Oh my gosh, Becca. This is just so amazing. I’m so excited to try this and you make it look so easy. I know these tutorials must be sooo time consuming for you, but look how many people you make happy!!! Totally gorgeous, just like you.
Stunning! – as usual ;)
