Joyfold Card

Hi there,

I decided to try a new card style, a joyfold card.  There are lots of great demonstration online, my card was inspired by this site.  This card was made for a friend’s 50th birthday (not mentioning any names… Wayne 🙂 )

Embossing Folder: M-bossabilities Harlequin (Side A)
Other: Double sided tape
Measurements and scoring details:
1 piece 8 ¾ “ x 4”, scored at 5 ¾”

I stamped the image from the Vintage Automobiles set onto one of the 4” x 2½” pieces of cream cardstock, and the sentiment from the same set onto the other 4” x 2½” piece of cream cardstock.

These were then mounted on the tan pieces of cardstock, and then on the brown cards.  The smaller card was then adhered in the centre of the larger card.

Bye for now,
