Catch the Bug: Joy Fold Card Tutorial

Hello there!  I'm so excited!  I'm being featured over on the Catch the Bug challenge blog.  YAY!!  If you have made your way here from there thanks so much for joining me for this fun, Joy Fold Card Tutorial.

This is an easy card fold :-)  Here is the finished card.  I love, love this image.  It's so cute!

You will need 2 pieces of cardstock.  One cut at 4 1/4 x 6 1/4" and the other cut at 3 x 6".
 Score the 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 at 4 1/4".  Score the 3 x 6 piece at 3".  (sorry, score lines are really hard to see in the photo)

 Fold on the score lines.

 Add designer papers, an image and any other embellishments.  Or you could use double-sided patterned paper and this card would go together very quickly.
 Attach the smaller 3x3 flap piece to the center of the 4 1/4 piece as shown above. 
And it's just that easy:-)  I like to close mine with ribbon or twine.

I have a couple other cards using this Joy fold from past blog posts :-)

Wow, I just realized I used similar colors on all three cards....LOL!

SBC DIY linky party

Hello there!  It's time for a fun linky party on the Scrapbook Blessings Club blog.  Anything DIY goes.  From crafts to DIY to recipes.  Link it all up :-)  I've got a DIY home décor project to share today.  I've used a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2" frame that I've painted black.  I found a bunch of these frames at Michael's in their $3 bins.  Because of their small size they are perfect to display on your dresser or nightstand to add a little holiday cheer.
