Just Believe in Joy......

A joy fold card that is!  Hee Hee.  This is my first try at this type of card and I love it.  So you may see more!!

And this is how it opens - 

Now what was my reason for trying a different fold?  Well it's to join in with The Friday Mashup and not just join in but I'm delighted to say I've been asked to be a Guest Designer for April.  I was so surprised and pleased to receive an email from Holly.  I've played along with this challenge many times and I love the twist of mashing it up or not.  

Here's this weeks challenge -

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project using " a Special Fold".
  2. Or Make a project using the " Tic Tac Toe Board".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Special Fold card using Tic Tac Toe".

I've gone with Neutrals, Ribbons and Flowers and as I already said a Joy Fold.  

My card base is Crumb Cake.  I made my own designer paper using Very Vanilla and the Just Believe stamp set. I used River Rock to stamp the background flowers and Soft Suede for the sentiments and frame. The edges of the base panels were sponged with River Rock and Crumb Cake.  The mat for the middle fold is Chocolate Chip and the panels were lightly sponged all over with River Rock and Crumb cake.  I added a trim of Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.

I used the circle stamp in Soft Suede and punched out with the 1 1/4" punch.  Then added a ribbon tag of Very Vanilla and attached to the front of the card. 

I've only got 1 place left on my Stampers 6!  If you would like to receive a parcel of goodies each month then check out the Virtual Hostess Page on my top bar and get in touch - It would be lovely to hear from you! 

Thanks for dropping in past, I appreciate your visit.  Have a look at the challenge and the gorgeous inspiration from the other designers.  x
