Hi Stampers. Today I have another fun fold card for you. This fold is called the “joy fold”. I made this card using the Forever & Always stamp set & the True Love Designer Series Paper. This suite was designed for Valentine’s Day, it is great for celebrating love all year. Whether you need a wedding, anniversary, or just a card to say “Love You More” – this suite is great!
This Forever & Always card starts with a Basic Black card base 8-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″. (Yes, the front of the card will be smaller than the back.) On the larger back panel I added a layer of the True Love DSP 4″ x 5-1/4″ and a layer 2-3/4″ x 4″ on the front panel.
The second part of the card is a piece of Basic Black CS 8″ x 3″, scored at 4. This is adhered in the center of the back panel of the card base with the fold on the right. (See photo above.)
On the front of the second part of the card I used a piece of True Love DSP, 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″. This floral pattern was on the reverse side of the DSP used in the background. I thought about coloring the flowers, but decided to go with the reverse and just colored the open space with Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.
Inside the Forever & Always card is a layer of Basic White CS – 3-3/4″ x 2-3/4″. Using Memento Black ink, I stamped the sentiment “Love you more”. This fold has been around a long time.
