Joy Fold Card

June 27, 2012

After making the Z-fold birthday card for this week’s challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations I was inspired to make another fancy fold card, this time a Joy Fold.  You will find really good instructions for this fold  written by Beate Johns at Splitcoast Stampers.  If you haven’t played along with our challenge this week, you still have time, it doesn’t close till about 7pm on Friday.

I started with a base card of Early Expresso and I added a layer of Well Worn Designer Series Paper.  I also decorated the front using another piece of the same designer series paper.  To create the central panel I also used Early Expresso card.  I stamped the car from the Need for Speed stampset onto Very Vanilla using Early Expresso ink and sponged the edges using the same ink.  I added a mat of Cajun Craze card and attached it to the front fold.  Inside the card I added Very Vanilla card which is sponged around the edges with Early Expresso ink.  I didn’t have a stamp for “happy father’s day” so I printed it using my computer.  I stamped “celebrate” from the Fabulous Phrases stampset onto Very Vanilla card using Early Expresso ink and punched it using the Word Window Punch.  I re-inserted the greeting into the Word Window Punch to create a smaller word window.  The greeting was attached to a Cajun Craze Large Oval and then to an Early Expresso Scallop Oval.  I attached the greeting to the front using dimensionals so that the front flap could be locked underneath it.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.

    That card is perfect for your challenge. It is also the perfect male card – something which is hard to do! You nailed it. Thanks so much for sharing.
