I have chosen to make a Joy Fold card and have to say that I'm finding them a real joy to make! The image has been coloured with Promarkers and edged round with gold pen The Christmas papers are all by Holly Hobbie 2012 Christmas Joy Paper Collection free with Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine. Bakers twine from my stash along with the snippets of red card to make the sentiment using Britannia word dies. The inserts were cut using Spellbinders 'Majestic Elements'. I used Sizzix 657552 and Xcut nesting die to cut the retaining circles.
This is the card closed with the front fold held in place by the circles with are raised on 3d pads.
When you start to open the card this is the flap you see inside.
Starting to fold the front flap down.
Front down completely showing the image.
And finally with the image flap folded up to see the inside of the card. I couldn't resist making up a sentiment to go with the image.
Forgot to put the link in for making a Joy fold card . Split Coasters have an excellent one.
