Merry Patterns Joy Fold

September 16, 2017

I am still on a roll using the Merry Patterns stamp set but wanted to do something a little different so decided on a Joy Fold card.   The measurements for the card base are 21cm x 10.5cm, with the 21cm length scored at 14.8cm.  This gives me the card base and the small flap on the left.   I embossed Whisper White card using the Holly Embossing Folder and attached it to the inside of the card.  I attached a piece of the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper to Basic Black card and then to the front of the small flap.  The inside layer of my card is 20cm x 7.5cm, scored along the 20cm length at 10cm.  The Real Red card is attached to the embossed Whisper White card with the fold line on the right.  I stamped “to be jolly!” from the Merry Patterns stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and attached it to the inside of this layer.  To decorate the front panel, I stamped the candles onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the leaf image across under the candles using Old Olive ink to create a lovely wreath effect.  I stamped “’tis the Season” over the top of the stamped images using Real Red ink.  I stamped the fill image for “season” onto scrap Whisper White card using Real Red ink and cut out each letter, which I attached over the stamped letters.  I also stamped the fill for the candles using Daffodil Delight ink.  The image panel is attached to Basic Black card and then the card front.

A Joy Fold card needs something to keep the top flap closed, so I stamped the reindeer image from the Carols of Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Basic Black ink and punched it out using the 1″ Circle Punch.  The image is attached to a Basic Black  1-1/4″ Circle and then to a Real Red 1-3/8″ circle.  The circles are attached to the small flap using dimensionals so that the card front can be slipped in behind the reindeer image.

I love Joy Fold cards, in fact I love making all sorts of fancy folds, but often don’t make the time.  I’d love to hear what you think about this one.

Bye for now,

      Thanks Vicky. Finding the time is the only problem.
