6x6 Joy-Fold Card by Claudia Rosa

Hello to all of the Whiff Of Joy fans! Thank you so much for visiting our Inspiration blog. Today i would love to show you a fun card, which not only makes a special gift to a loved one.. no you also have endless possibilities to play with several of your stamps without "overloading" your card design.

The card we are making is called "Joy-fold" card and a smaller design can be found over at Splitcoaststampers. Since i like to play with patterned paper i wanted to make the card larger to 6x6 inches which gives me more room for my papers to show and embellishments

Lets get started you will need the following basic supplies:

On my card i have used

Stamping Kit Birdie Love
- scoring board (i prefer Scorpal)
- Paper cutter
- several different coordinating Designer papers
- glue
- Embellishments of your choice (Important hint: you may want to keep all embellishments you want to use on the left side very flat and more towards the inside of your 4.75 x 4.75 scquare, otherwise your flap does not open nicely)
- i used also Nestabilities for my focal point image (circle and blossom shape)

cut one sheet of card stock to 6 x9 inches or 23 cm x 15.5 cm and score at the 6 " mark

second cut a contrasting piece of card stock to 9.5 by 4.75 inches or 12 cm by 24 cm and fold in half (here you can see i have already cut the mat and Designer paper to cover the front of this card piece)

This is a shot, to show you how you will have to assemble your card pieces together, after you have glued all your design papers to your card bases. I hope this helps.

Here are all my papers (Design paper is always matted with a contrasting piece of card stock) layed out to be assembled to my card base.
you are going to have at the end:

1 x 14.5 cm x 14.5 cm piece (yellow with chicks bottom of picture)
2 (covers front and inside) x 11.5cm x 11.5 cm (floral pattern on pic to the left)
2 x (covers front and inside) 14.5 x 7 cm (shown on pic to the right - chick and floral paper)

Thank you again for you time. I hope i could inspire you to recreate this fun card.
See you soon :-)
