Joy Fold Card

After almost giving up on this card as too difficult, I finally completed it!

And here is the inside:


I had issues with the measurements - probably because all my rulers are in centimetres and the instructions were in inches!!  I also stuck the inside piece of paper on the wrong side but fixed that by putting another piece on the correct side so that it looks like that is how it is meant to be!!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Penny's Paper - Joy Fold Card

CHNC - Anything Christmas

The papers used are all from the same paper pad.  The image is one of two supplied by Eureka Stamps for the progressive christmas challenge at Lady Anne's.  The sentiment is from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.

  5. I've been seeing a lot of these Joy folds and had thought that they didn't look too hard and was hoping to attempt one soon. Maybe I should reconsider now. Even though you struggled, it turned out beautiful. Great wat to showcase this month's LA progressive image.

    Okay, now I'm really laughing out loud. As you know I'm busy catching up on your older posts so I've been reading your notes but just skimming over the products used. Well I just glanced up and first saw your win at Beccy's so congrats on that and you'll have to let me know if that was for June but secondly I just glanced up at Naomi's and saw my name which made me curious and when I read the sentence I thought, huh? Once again, I don't even recognize my own work. I really need to start paying more attention. So I've added it to the gallery just now and linked it up and once again thanks so much for using my creations. You definitely one of my biggest supporters and I appreciate that beyond words.
