Fancy Folds Blog Hop – JAI 74

Hi everyone…..welcolme to the Fancy Folds Blog Hop (JAI # 75).  Ohhh, this is so exciting – and I know you are just going to love seeing what all the girls have in store for you this week.

Joy Fold Card

For this Fancy Folds Blog Hop – I decided to do a Joy Fold Card.  I decided on this because, it’s pretty easy to do but quite effective.
The one I have put together for this Blog Hop is quite simple but I just really wanted to show the actual fold / technique. The steps I used to make this card and my dimensions are as follows……

Step One

I started with 2 pieces of Pacific Point card stock that make up the base of my card.
1 – 8 ¾ “ x 4” . I scored this at 5 ¾”
1 – 9” x 3”. I scored this at 4 ½”

The other pieces of card I have cut are the layers for decoration.  You could use one layer for this or DSP if you wish.
My dimensions are as follows:
Bashful Blue
1 – 5 ½” x 3 ¾”
2 – 4 ¼” x 2 ¾”

Whisper White
1 – 5 ¼” x 3 ½”
2 – 4” x 2 1/2”

Step 2

I layered and stuck the larger Bashful Blue and Whisper White pieces into my large Pacific Point piece. I stamped some Flowers and a Butterfly on the outside flap. These are from the Every Moment Stamp Set.

Step 3

I layered and stuck the Bashful Blue and Whisper White pieces inside my smaller Pacific Point piece. I stamped a Butterfly onto it. This will be the inside of your finished card.

Step 4

 I stamped and coloured some flowers onto the last Whisper White piece. This is the image that is going to be on the front of you finished card.

Step 5
I then layered and stuck the remaining Bashful Blue and my Flower piece to the outside of the small Pacific Point bit. This then kinda looks like a little card – that opens the wrong way. (Fold on the right hand side).
Then I put some adhesive on the back of the smaller card and stuck it to the inside centre of the large card. So when opened – it kinda looks like a card with an opening on both sides.

Step 6

Add a bit of ribbon and your done!

I hope you have a go at making a Joy Fold card – let me know if you do.
