Joy Fold Birthday

April 18, 2019

Today’s card is a Fancy Fold card called a Joy Fold.  To create these cards, you cut a normal card base and then trim down the left hand side to about 1/2.  You cut another smaller folding card which is attached to the inside of the base of the main card so that the fold is facing to the right. I cut the two card bases from Thick Whisper White card.  I used  a piece of Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper to decorate the inside of the base card and the reverse side of the same Designer Series paper to decorate the small fold on the left.  To decorate the front of the smaller folding card, I stamped the small flower stem from the Bloom by Bloom stamp set three times onto Whisper White card using Call Me Clover ink.  I stamped the small flower onto the two outside stems using Lovely Lipstick ink.  I stamped the third flower onto scrap Whisper White card and cut it out by hand.  The hand cut flower is attached to the centre flower stem using dimensionals.  I added a Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot to the centre of the popped up flower.  I randomly added three of the Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots around the stamped images.  The image panel is attached to Night of Navy card and then the small card front.  To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the dotted border image from the Bloom by Bloom stamp set across the bottom of Whisper White card using Lovely Lipstick ink.  The stamped panel is attached to Night of Navy card and then the inside of the smaller card base.  To hold the card closed, I stamped “birthday” and “wishes” from the Tabs for Everything stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink.  I punched out the greeting using the 1-1/4″ circle punch and attached it to a Night of Navy 1-3/8″ scalloped circle.  The greeting is attached to the front left hand flap using dimensionals so that the front of the smaller card sits under the greeting to hold the card closed.

I love these type of cards.  It’s such an easy card to make and you really don’t have to stick to set dimensions.  Hope that the young lady this is going to loves it as much as I do.

Bye for now,

Kris
