This week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO374) was the foundation for today’s joy fold card.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • A joy fold card is simply two intersecting cards.

  • My card base measures 8 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and is scored at 2 3/4″.  I added a yummy black and white pattern from Stampin’ Up! Back to Black Designer Series Paper on the front panel.
  • The smaller intersecting card measures 8 1/2″ x 3″ and is scored at 4 1/4″.

  • The Stampin’ Up! Handheld Stapler and Silver Mini Staples keep my Melon Mambo heart in place with a fun touch.

  • Using my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Magnetic Platform and Envelope Liner Framelits Dies, I cropped Back to Black Designer Series Paper to a perfect fit in a Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Medium Envelope.   GET IT!  The Magnetic Platform is 40% OFF as part of the On-Line Extravaganza Sale.  Ends Dec. 2.
