Joy Fold Card

Today I have a Joy Fold Card to show you. I found the tutorial here on Splitcoasters. I used one of the sentiments from Sweet 'n Sassy's new February Release. The set is called "Easter Scripture" and it is perfect timing as Easter is not that far away.

I embossed the sentiment and then cut it using a Nestabilities die. I then airbrushed over it with my copic airbrush system. I gives such a soft and even coverage.

The butterflies are made using a Martha Stewart punch. For the butterflies on the front of the card, I punched 3 shapes. I glued two together - wrong sides facing and then sponged some ink along the sides. The third shape was also sponged and laid down on a dimensional first before placing the glued ones down. It creates a nice little 3-D to the card and keeps the flap closed.

  • Ink: Versacolor and Embossing powder
  • Paper: SU! Blue Bayou, DP Green Tea(retired)
  • Coloring: Copic Marker Airbrushing

I cut a smaller matching shaped for the inside to add a sentiment later. This was very easy to complete and makes a lovely card. I am sure I will be making more and maybe changing up the sizes and dimensions!

Try out the tutorial. It really is easy! Thanks for stopping by!
