Isn't the Painted Autumn Designer Series paper stunning?! Seriously – love this paper! Today's card is a simple Joy fold card – directions and dimensions are below.
The Joy fold is a tri-fold type card as you can see from this photo looking down at the top of the card.
From the front, this is the 1st part of the fold…
…then part two of the fold…
And part three with the card fully opened. I left the inside blank to write a message. As you can see – the small "mini" card that opens is not centered on the Crushed Curry layer – but justified towards the right. So the space above, below, and to the right have about the same width of Crushed Curry showing. Here are the dimensions:
Early Espresso Card Stock: 4 1/4" x 8 1/2"scored at 5 1/2" (card base); 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" scored at 3 1/4" (smaller piece that opens); scrap for punching circle layer.
Crushed Curry 4" x 5 1/4"
Very Vanilla 2" x 2 3/4, scraps for punching the label and the greeting.
Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper 2 3/4" x 4"
Here is another, slightly fancier example of a Joy fold card that I did back in August – also with the Painted Autumn Designer Paper. Click on the photo to see a tutorial on how to make this card.
The label image and the "Give Thanks" image are both from the Labels To Love stamp set which coordinates beautifully with the Everyday Label Punch. The pretty Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon is so soft and easy to work with – it always adds the perfect touch. I did pop up the circles with the "Give Thanks" on a Dimensional because, well, I'm pretty much addicted to Dimensionals. I just love that extra depth they add to a card! The 1 3/8" Circle Punch was the perfect width for the Give Thanks image and the Early Espresso layer under it is punched with the 1 1/2" Circle Punch.
