Holly Jolly Joy Fold Card

Hi there!  Kristine here with a fun Joy Fold card that I made with The Rubber Cafe November Creative Cafe' Kit.

In addition to the supplies from the kit I used, Spellbinders dies, Scrap Happy Glue, Copic Markers and Scrapbook Adhesive 3D Squares.

Here's the card when it is closed up.

To make the card you'll need to cut this paper:

  • One 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of black cardstock
  • One 3" x 8" piece of red cardstock
  • Two 2 3/4" x 4" pieces of designer paper (optional)
  • One 2" x 3" piece of white cardstock
  • One 2 1/8" x 3 1/8" piece of black cardstock

  • Start by folding the panel of black cardstock at 5 1/2 inches.

    Adhere the ornament patterned paper panel to the front of the smaller half of the black panel with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.
    Adhere the black patterned paper to the inside of the larger half of the black panel with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.

    Fold the red panel in half.

    Adhere the red pattern paper panel to the red panel with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue as shown in the picture below.

    Adhere the red panel to the black panel with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue as shown in the picture.

    The picture below shows how it looks when folded up.  The ornament panel folds in first and then the red panel folds in.

    Stamp the flying reindeer image on the small white panel with black ink and then stamp again on a white scrap.  Back the white panel with the larger black panel.  Use a circle punch or die to punch around the circle part of the image and adhere on top of the other image with a 3D foam square.

    Adhere the panel to the red panel with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.  Adhere a red rhinestone in each corner of the panel as shown.

    Stamp ornaments on a white scrap and color with copic markers (R21-R22-R24-YG61-YG63-Y26-C1-C3).

    Stamp the sentiment on one of the black stickers with VersaMark ink and emboss with white embossing powder.
    Adhere the sticker to a scrap of black cardstock and then cut it out and adhere to a white panel with  Scrap Adhesive 3D foam squares.  
    Fuss cut out the ornaments and adhere them with Scrap Adhesive 3D foam squares.
    Back panel with a slightly larger black panel.

    Adhere this panel to the inside of the card on the red panel as shown.

    Tie a piece of red ribbon around the right side of the card as shown in the picture below.

    When you close the card you can use the ribbon to hold the top panel closed.
