Welcome to the weekly Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week's card is a gatefold card with a twist.

Here are measurements and instructions so you can make a card like this.
You can use any shape for the opening in the gatefold.

5-7 Gatefold Card with circle opening
Cut base card  from cards tock 7x10 inches
Score @ 2 ½ inches on either end

Front panels are cut at 2 ¼ x 61/4
And 2 5/16 x 6 ½ inches

After card base is made and panels  are stamped and in place,
Mark the ½ inch mark on your punch and punch out half a circle
On each panel where you want to place your circle stamped image.
Measure down the panel so both are in the same place and form
A perfect circle when card is closed.

I popped up the stamp on the pink and black panel so that
When the card is closed, it is popped out on the front of the card.
You can leave it flat if you prefer.

Center the circle stamp, now mounted on the other circles, into the 
circle hole on inside of the card and Close the card for a perfect fit,
 then glue in place on the inside.
