Fun Folded Cards

Would you like to make a card that doesn't look like a standard card yet will still fit in a regular sized envelope? I have a few ideas for you! If you would like to see a close-up of any of these cards, just click on the picture.

This first card is called a "Joy Fold" card. I'm not sure where that name came from, but it is a fun card to make with a unique look! Basically you have a panel that opens to reveal the message inside. Very cute!

You can see from the second picture how it opens to reveal the inside message. The card part opens and so does the panel.

I used the The Angel Company's "Love & Joy" stamp set for the flowers on the flap and on the inside of the card. The "plant smiles" sentiment is from the TAC "Nurture Your Soul" word set and the large "Laugh" stamp is from a set called "Fun Time". All inks used are Pallette inks (the best!!). The patterned paper is from the TAC "Catelynne" collection.

The second fun card is a tentfold card that has become quite popular recently. Basically, it is a smaller card with the top image piece attached so that it sticks out above where you fold the card. Believe it or not, this still fits in a stardard size (A2) envelope!

This stamp set is a fun one called "Retail Therapy" and it is colored with watercolor crayons and a dove blender. There are stickles on her dress and on the presents. The paper and tag are from the TAC "Catelynne" paper collection.

Love your papers in that card. They look awesome together. I was inspired to make a Joy Fold over the weekend too. I just love the look of it.
