The Pixie Cottage's Saturday Tutorial

Joy Fold Card Tutorial

Materials Used
Design Paper
Copic Markers (or Coloring Utensils of your choice)
Pixie Cottage Stamp- Girly Girl Bunny
Paper Flower
Scallop Circle Punch
Pop up Dots
Scoring Tool
Step One
Cut out the following pieces of paper
One piece  3" x 8" cardstock
One piece 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" cardstock
One piece   2 3/4" x 3 3/4" design paper
One piece 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" Neenah's Classic Crest paper for stamping your image
One piece 4" x 5 1/4" design paper
One piece 2 3/4" x 4" design paper

Step Two 
Stamp your image onto the 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" Neena Paper (or appropriate paper for your coloring medium)
Colour you image.

Step Three
Score your 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" cardstock at 5 1/2"
Score your 3" x 8" carstock at 4"

Step Four
Tape your 4" x 5 1/4" design paper to the inside of the card.
Tape your 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" design paper to the outside of the card.
Tape your Stamped and colored 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" cardstock to the outside of the smaller folded cardstock piece. Being sure to have the fold on the right side.

Step Five
Tape the smaller flap to the inside of the card.  Be sure to have the fold pointing to the right of the card.

Step Six
Close the card so that the smaller flap overlaps the left flap.  If you want to secure the smaller flap, making sure the card stays closed, you can add a flower, or other embellishment.  I used a scalloped circle punch on similar design paper and attached 2 flowers with a yellow brad.  I  popped up the scalloped circle with foam dots, and simply tucked the flap underneath the flowers.

You get to be the artist now, and finish up your Joy Fold Card. Embellishing, adjusting, changing the tutorial to fit your needs. I hope that you have been inspired to create, and perhaps if this is a new fold for you, why not give it a go.

Be sure to join The Pixie Cottage in two weeks, when Francy will be featuring another one of her unique tutorials.

Happy Crafting ladies,
