Fun with Joy Fold Squared

Hello everyone! This weekend I had so much fun making cards using the Joy Fold Squared that Tricia featured over at StampTV's  Friday Funday.  You can see her tutorial here, she also has a PDF file you can download.  I made one small change to the measurements for the insert. Instead of cutting a 5-1/2" x 3" piece of cardstock, cut a 6" x 3" piece and score at 3" to get the small square. Then line with a 2-3/4" square.



Card Recipe:
Card base - Ivory - 6-1/8" x 4-1/4" (scored at 4-1/4")
Insert - Ivory - 6" x 3" (scored at 3")
Pattern Papers (I used Gina K's Sunkissed Autumn) - 4" square; 1-5/8" x 4"
Orange tissue paper - 4" square adhered to a 2-3/4" square panel
Sunflower - A Year of Flowers illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger 
Sentiment - Fabulous Frame Fillers illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger

This Joy Fold is fun, easy and a great way to use up your pattern paper packs.  I hope you try it (if you haven't already). Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thank you Verna. The hardest part was choosing the pretty pattern papers. I kept looking at my small stash of Gina K. Design paper packs and couldn't seem to stop.

    1. Thanks Judy. The Joy Fold was new to me and now I'm a big fan of it. Gina K's embossing powder is wonderful, it beautifies any image.
