Joy Fold Card

Happy Monday!!

It was my turn again to host the Method Monday over on the InStyle Stamps blog.  You may remember a few weeks ago during the last blog hop, I made a this Joy fold card.  I decided to do a tutorial of it show you how I did it! (the original tutorial was from SCS.)

The Supplies:
- (1) 4.25" x 8.5" piece of cardstock
- (1) 3" x 8" piece of cardstock
- (3) 2.75" x 4" pieces of patterned paper
- (1) 4" x 5.25" piece of patterned paper
- Misc. embellishments

Step 1: Score the 4.25"x8.5" piece of cardstock at 5.5" to create the card base.

Step 2: Score the 3"x 8" piece of cardstock at 4".

Step 3: Adhere the 4"x5.25" piece of patterned paper to the inside of the folded card base, and one of the 2.75"x 4" piece of patterned paper to the outside.

Step 4: Adhere the other two pieces of 2.75"x4" pieces of cardstock to the inside & outside of the folded 3"x8" cardstock.

Step 5: Adhere the smaller folded card to the inside of the card base- be sure the flap opens to the right.

Step 6: This step is optional if you want to add something to secure the card from opening. Add an embellishment of stamped image (or anything) with dimensional adhesives on one edge (shown w/arrows) to overlap the corner of the folded card.

Step 7: Embellish & complete the front of your card, I used adorable Marissa.
