Pleased As Punch Tulip Wide Gate Fold Cards
I had never seen this particular style of gate-fold card until I received a swap card from Susie Wood, and I couldn't wait to share it with you!  I love that the gap in the center of the card is connected by the focal point and hides the message inside. I also love that it can stand on its own for display, and fold flat to fit into a standard A2 size envelope.

Card Base—I began with a Balmy Blue card base that measured 11" x 5-1/2". The measurements for this card are a little tricky because they are so small, but if you have the NEW Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer they will be no problem, because it has measurements in the sixteenths!  Score at 1-11/16", 3-3/8", 7-5/8" and 9-5/16", then accordion fold each gate. 
TIP: To help it lay flat, use the pointed end of a Bone Folder to really dig in and deeply crease the folds.

Gate Panels—I decorated each of the gate fronts with the Pleased As Punch striped paper measuring 1-1/2" x 5-1/4".

Focal Point—I stamped the stem from Timeless Tulips in Pear Pizzazz ink onto a 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock, then matted it onto a 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of Daffodil Delight. It's adhered onto a Balmy Blue scalloped rectangle die-cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  
Next, I punched out a tulip and leaf shape from the Pleased As Punch DSP with the Tulip Builder Punch. I popped those up with Dimensionals. Then I popped up the entire focal point onto the left gate panel using Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—I stamped the Timeless Tulips sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 3-1/4" x 1/2" piece of Pool Party and popped that up over the tulip. I also adorned a few Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins around the tulip for a little shine.

Inside The Card—I cut another 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" Whisper White piece to add to the inside of the card directly behind the focal point.  You could add some stamped tulips or punched tulips to it to dress it up a bit.

Swap Card created by Susie Wood.
Two Cool—The second card is Susie Wood's original swap card that inspired my CASE above!  She started with a Daffodil Delight card base accented with the same striped DSP.

Her layers consisted of Daffodil Delight on a Mango Melody scallop rectangle.

Focal Point—Susie used a different color of tulip and added a second leaf and added a bit of Wink of Stella shimmer. She also adorned her focal point with Gingham Gala sequins. The sentiment is stamped in Mango Melody onto a Daffodil Delight piece and she added some Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, too!  Thanks for sharing your beautiful card, Susie!
