So the blog post I had planned for today had to be postponed at the last minute, I promise you will see the next Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge really soon – it just needs a little more cooking! The wonderful Sam Johnson has been working super hard on this challenge, and we cannot wait to show you!
In light of that, I thought I would show you a different sketch challenge today. I’m LOVING using sketches again at the moment, I mean, 3 sketches in a week! And I haven’t taken part in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge in a while.
This sketch screamed fancy fold to me, a Joy Fold Card to be precise. I really enjoyed making this card, and cutting into some more of the back stock of Designer Series Paper. I struggle to use Designer Series Paper on cards at the best of times, but when its black I find using it almost impossible. However, I don’t think this effort is too shabby! The Designer Series Paper here is called Pretty Petals, and I have a whole pack of it waiting for the next person to join my team of Stampin’ Friends!
A Joy Fold card is super simple to make too, as its more about the cutting of the card stock, than the folding.
- Black card stock – 10.5 x 22.3 cm. Scored at 10.5 cm
- Black Designer Series Paper – 14.3 x 10.5 cm
- Mint Macaron card stock – 7.5 x 21 cm. Scored at 10.5 cm
- Floral Designer Series Paper – 7 x 10 cm
- Very Vanilla card stock – 6.5 x 9.5 cm
I’ve also used two different stamp sets on this card; Garden in Bloom and Perfect Pairings for the sentiment. Perfect Pairings is a great sentiment set available for FREE during Sale-a-bration.
