Today I will show you my version of a Joy Fold Card.
You may have already made a Joy Fold Card because they can be found all over on Pinterest. I’ll give you my measurements and directions but you can find many videos just in case you want to see the variety.
I have a LOT of photos for this one. 🙂
This looks like a regular size card but part of the front cover is cut off and then a smaller card opening in the opposite direction with a small cut out to hold it closed. That’s basically what it is!
Notice the touch of Organdy Highland Heather Ribbon on the side. (Unfortunately the Organdy Ribbon Pack from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure is out of stock. 😦 )
This shows both cards opened up to see the inside sentiment.
Here’s a close up of the darling little butterfly that holds the front piece closed.
Here are my directions:
Base Card – 8 1/2 x 4 1/4, score at 5 1/2; 3 x 8, score at 4
DSP – 2 3/4 x 4
Inside Whisper White – (2) 2 3/4 x 3 3/4; 5 1/4 x 4
After scoring I lined up the smaller card folding in the opposite direction in the center of the larger section of the base card – just so I knew how it should go…this is important to remember.
I used the bubbles (both sizes) from Beauty Abounds to stamp onto the 5 1/4 x 4 Whisper White to make my own DSP.
The little butterfly was stamped using Beauty Abounds and then cutting it out with Butterfly Beauty Thinlits. I put a tiny piece of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the left side of the butterfly so that the flap would still tuck under.
Stampin’ Up! Products Used:
Stamp Set – Beauty Abounds
Ink – Highland Heather, Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper – Highland Heather, Whisper White, Botanical Butterfly DSP (from Sale-A-Bration)

I really hope you try this fold and maybe even this design or your version of it.
