Gatefold Easel Card with Template

A while back I posted some cards I made for a class (that didn't happen) of a gatefold easel design.  I told some friends on FB that I'd post the template but I had to make another card so you could see the design.  So, without further delay....


Here's the card closed.  The card wants to pop open because of the goodies inside so I made the label tuck into the 2 leaves on the right!  I was debating making a slider but opted for this instead.


This gives you the idea of the tucking....


And the card open and up.  The singular elephant is from a Stampendous set called Serengeti and the others are from The Angel Company and Lawn Fawn.

I hope you can understand this template.  It's the base of the card.  Just take your time and score and cut where needed. 


For the easel - the part with the elephant - I cut another piece of the same card stock as the base at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" then added my decorative paper and whatever.
