Hello. Come and join us over at StampTV where I am hosting this week's Mix-It-Up-Monday (MIUM) challenge.
The challenge is to make a Thankful Joy Fold card (repeat this 3 times real fast and you'll be saying Thankful Joyful). This is a fun and easy card to make, great for using up those beautiful pattern papers we like so much. There are many tutorials on making this fun folding card on YouTube and Pinterest. You can make it for Thanksgiving or just to say Thank You.
To make this card I cut card stock 7-3/8" x 4-1/4" and scored it at 2". This makes the 2" panel, then your card will measure 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" (regular A2 size easy for mailing). I cut another piece 6" x 3" and scored that at 3". This is the top 3" square. Cut two pieces of pattern paper measuring 1-3/8" x 4" and 5-1/8" x 4" (front panel and background). I ran the 3" square through my Sizzix using one of Spellbinders Nestabilities Gold Squares One Enhancing Elements then sponged the edges with GKD Blue Lagoon. The sentiment is also stamped using Blue Lagoon.
For the inside of the square I cut a square piece of paper 2-3/8". Sponged the edges with Blue Lagoon and added a small strip 2-3/8" x 1/2" of the same pattern paper. This card comes together very quickly making it very easy if you want to make many.
