Joy Fold Card
I haven’t made a Joy Fold card in quite a while, and I should have shared it before now, because this is one I created for my August Class. I used Tip Top Taupe card for the base and added a layer of Bermuda Bay card which I embossed using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. I added a strip of designer series paper from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack to the left hand flap. I folded Watermelon Wonder card in half and attached it to the centre of the embossed Bermuda Bay card. I stamped the images from the Build a Birthday stamp set using Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder and Bermuda Bay ink onto Whisper White card. The top layer of the cake is a piece of the yellow Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape. I used the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to punch Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe and Bermuda Bay card. I attached the flowers using Glue Dots and then added a Basic Pearl to the centre of each flower. To hold my card closed, I stamped the greeting from the Petite Pairs stamp set onto Whisper White card using Bermuda Bay ink and punched it out using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch. I attached the greeting to a 1-3/8″ circle of Crushed Curry card and used dimensionals to position it so that I could close the card. I left the Whisper White panel on the inside of the Watermelon Wonder card blank, to add a message.
These are such fun cards to make. If you don’t know where to start to make one of these you will find a great tutorial on the Splitcoast Stampers website.
Why don’t you make one and share the result with me. I’d love to see your creations.
Bye for now,
