Hello and thanks for visiting me today,
It’s the 2nd Sugar Nellie facebook challenge
and this time they would like to see a Joyfold on your card.
As per usual I wanted to do the fold with a slight twist,
so made a Triangle one instead
The size template and how I used it can be found at the bottom of this post.
Isn’t this Simply Sassy stamp adorable?
She is called ‘Spread your Wings‘
and can be found at Funkykits.
She is coloured with copics,
and had a go at some shadowing in her top,
me things I need more practise!
Above a couple of close ups on the fold,
and here is the Card Recipe:
Image: Sugar Nellie,
sentiment: can’t remember.. sorry!
Punches: MS border /corner, SU! bird and lace trim, Scalloped Circle,
Papers: MME Bella, Bella
Embellies: Sticky pearls and glitter pen for doodling
The message can be left on the decorated panel.
I’m really pleased how this turned out
Triangle Joyfold template:
You can make this fold in 2 ways,
the first one is what I done for my card
You will need 2 pieces of cardstock, 5.5″ x 11″ each.
Score both pieces at 5.5″ lengthwise,
cut one piece on a diagonal from top-middle to left bottom
and the second piece from top middle to bottom right.
If your cardstock has a right/wrong side,
make sure the wrong side is facing up.
Attach the 2 pieces together on the square so it looks like this:
Decorate the inside with patterned paper,
then stick the left triange down onto the centre
Or.. Try method two:
You could also achieve this by just using 1 piece of card stock at the given measurements,
by using the cut off triangle and sticking direct onto the decorated inside
But this leaves a rough layered edge on the left hand side,
and I didn’t want that.
Once this base was done,
I cut a panel 3.5″ x 7″ of cardstock,
scored at 3.5″ and fold to make the small panel
Measure on your card with the right triangle folded in to see if it fits
[How d'ya like my valentine nails uh?? lol]
stick the back of the smaller panel into place onto the cardbase,
leaving only the right triangle free to open/close.
You can now decorate the rest of your card however you fancy
Hope this template will be of use to some of you
Have a great evening
and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for a new Sugar Bowl Challenge
