If you like interactive and enjoy fold cards, I bet you will enjoy today’s Double Swing Gate Fun Fold Card. Most times, fun fold cards look complicated to create, but with all measurements and the How-To Video, you will find this fun fold is relatively easy to assemble.
The Double Swing Gate Fun Fold could be for any occasion, but it is a great card to display on a mantel, desk, and such. So it is more than a greeting card; it becomes a decor.
How to create a Double Swing Gate Card
I share how to create a Double Swing Gate Fun Fold Card from start to finish. I say all measurements in the video, but cutting the paper by looking at the writing measurements is much easier. Yes, I have all the written measurements below. So get your paper ready, and make one with me while I teach you how to do it in the video.
Double Swing Gate Card with Awash In Beauty
Both of the cards that I share today are the same in size. For this one with Awash In Beauty, I added two of the Label Me Lovely punch out at the front for extra elements.
The picture above shows that the punch overlap when closing the card, and it still closes without any problem. In the video, I share how to adhere the punchout to the front panels.
Balmy Blue is the color card stock with the Awash In Beauty designer paper.
Measurement for Double Swing Gate Fold Card
The cardstock color is the same for all panels, the card base, and such. Today’s cards one is in Balmy Blue (Awash In Beauty designer paper) and the other in Cajun Crase (Rustic Harvest designer paper).
- Card base 9 ½ x 4 ¼, 9 ½ at the top score at 1, 2, 7 ½, 8 ½. Extra cut diagonal needed all shown in the video.
- Mechanism 3 x 3 ¾, 3″ at the top score 1, 2. Extra cut diagonal needed all shown in the video.

Rustic Harvest Double Swing Gate Card
The designer paper for the pumpkin is from the Rustic Harvest. I explained in the video how I used the Stampin’ Blends to add various colors.
The bird view of this fun fold is the perfect view to show the depth of the card when it is open. So again, this is a great card to display.
