In a continuation of yesterday’s post, here are the other two cards we made using the new Strength and Hope stamp set (missed the first two cards, you can check them out here). The second card uses the “joy fold” technique to create a unique flap style card. They are actually really easy to make and can be a fun way to do something a little different with your cardmaking.
To make the joy fold card, you need to cut two pieces of your base cardstock: 1 piece that is 4-1/4” x 8-1/4” and 1 piece that is 3” x 8”. Score the larger piece at 5-1/2” and score the smaller piece at 4”. Decorate the 4-1/4 x 5-1/2” piece with patterned paper if desired (I use the pink designer paper) then adhere the 3” x 8” piece of cardstock in the center of the 4-1/4” x 5-1/2” space so that the score line of the smaller cardstock is on the right side of the card. Decorate the remaining flaps and areas of cardstock as desired. You will end up folding the small flap from the card base inside of the 3” x 8” piece you adhered to the center of the card. Then close the center piece over the little flap. I promise, it is way easier than it sounds! 🙂
