Well, I’m back again with some cards from my recent card class to share. These cards used the Joy Fold card template, which means they have a unique double opening using two pieces of card stock. See a great tutorial here on Splitcoaststampers.
The card on the right is a basic version of the Joy Fold card template. It has a double opening formed by a typical card base with the card front trimmed to accommodate the smaller card that is added to the inside and overlaps the card front. I used some of the pretty Sale-a-bration DSP called Sycamore Street with some Island Indigo DSP to match. I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set (p.94) and the Blossom punch (p.185) as the focal point.
This card has a slight variation in the Joy Fold design, however it still features a double opening. I used two scalloped cut out shapes to create the flaps. The flap on the left is cut using the Labels Collection Framelits (p.191) and the flap on the right is cut using the Oval Accents Bigz Clear die (p.192). These flaps were embossed with the Polka Dot folder and the Fancy Fan folder (p.189). I added some flowers which were punched using the Boho Blossom punch (p.185) and the 7/8″ and 1-1/4″ scallop circle punches (p.16/36 in the Spring catty). I added some rhinestones and leaves, and layered them onto the card. The smaller flower to the upper left, also helps keep the flap on the right closed by overlapping the flap slightly. The stamped scalloped medallion is from the Everything Eleanor stamp set (p.112) and it is punched out with the 2-3/8″ scalloped circle punch (p.184). Finally, this is layered onto a 2-1/2″ circle (p.185).
I hope you will try making a Joy Fold card too. They are really fun and a nice change to add a little WOW factor to your card making. I will share a few more of these types cards in the next few days. Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!
