Thankful Joy Fold card

The StampTV MIUM challenge this week is to make a Thankful Joy Fold card. A joy fold card is a specific way of folding the cardstock. We had to make it a Thanksgiving or a Thank You card.

The hardest part of making this card was picking out the patterned paper to use. I had so many nice ones to choose from.

I cut my base to 4 1/4 x 7 3/4 inches and scored it at 5 1/2 inches. I cut a piece of patterned paper to fit the inside and another one to fit the front part of the card base. I cut another piece of cardstock for the top folding piece 3 x 6 inches, scored at 3 inches. I folded that one so that it opens on the left. I stamped the sentiment and used a square stitched die to cut it out and another one to cut a mat. I attached both of these onto the top folding piece and adhered this to my card base. I then added a piece of ribbon to tuck in the top fold. Here is an picture of it open.

Materials used:
Gina K. Designs: Sweet Mango cardstock
                             Made With Love patterned paper and stamp set
Cottage Cutz Stitched Square Set dies
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
ribbon and white cardstock from my stash


  1. Beautiful card and I do love the Joy Fold designs.

  2. Love the colour combo, and of course, I'm going to love a 'joy' fold. Ha! Ha!


Thank you for your comments. I appreciate each one.
