Glitter Mint Gatefold Christmas Paper Pumpkin Alternative November 2022
This Glitter Mint Christmas Gatefold Card is an alternative project using the November 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit, From the North Pole. See here how to use ALL the glitter paper in the kit and make this fun fold card.
Paper Pumpkin kits are a great idea for busy crafters or new crafters looking to expand their stash. They come with EVERYTHING you need to make gorgeous project, but are also great opportunities to mix in other materials we have!
To get even more out of your paper pumpkin kits, pick one of these ideas: use an embossing folder, try a background stamp, give paper a little fold. Add some cardstock card bases. I love to do this in my Paper Pumpkin alternative classes, which are free to my subscribers!
For this featured alternative card, I decided using an embossing folder would add some of the subtle details I wanted.

How to make a Glitter Mint Gatefold Christmas Card:
Cut your cardstock:
- Mint Macaron: 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, scored at 2-1/8” from each side.
- From the snowflake die-cut sheet in the kit, cut two thin strips 5-1/2” long. I love glitter paper so much I couldn’t waste it and loooove using all of it!
- Punch out the large white banner, the green glitter banner, and the “ho ho ho” banner.
Emboss the Gates and Stamp:
- With the stripes embossing folder, dry emboss both of the front gates of your card. Adhere a glitter strip to each side of your gate.
- With Mint Macaron ink, stamp the “ho ho ho” over the sentiment on the banner. If it’s difficult to line up, this can be done with a Stamparatus.
Make the Banner:
- Adhere the stamped banner to the glitter banner. Then adhere this to the large white banner.
- Tie a bow at the top of your banner with the Mint Macaron twine in the kit.
- Lastly, add adhesive to only one half of the back of the banner and stick it to the front of one of your gates.
