Artfully Composed Joy Fold Thank You Card - Share it on a Sunday

 Hi Everyone,

Today's theme is 'Nature' and I have made a cute fun fold card using the Artfully Composed designer series paper and the Gorgeous Leaves bundle with the Pansy Patch stamp set and Forever Flourishing dies. Those of you who follow me know that I love a fun fold and this Joy Fold card is a really simple one to do that always looks great. Let me show you how I made it.


1 piece of pear pizzazz card 4 1/4" x 9 3/8", 1 piece 3 1/4" x 8 1/2"
Scraps of pear pizzazz and garden green card for the die cuts and sentiment
2 pieces of basic white card 2 7/8" x 4", scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of dsp 4" x 6", 2 pieces 2 7/8" x 4", 1 piece 3" x 4"
Pear pizzazz ink
Pansy Patch stamp set
Gorgeous Leaves stamp set
Intricate Leaves dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Forever Flourishing dies
Stitched So Sweetly dies
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive
Garden Gems/Rhinestones


On the long side score the largest piece of pear pizzazz at 6 1/4" and the smaller on at 4 1/4" and fold and burnish to make the two card bases.

Add the largest piece of dsp to the inside of the larger one and then the two matching pieces to the front and back of the flap. 

Remember that the smaller one opens the opposite way and add the dsp to the front flap of that card.

Adhere the smaller card to the larger one positioning it so that it opens the opposite way and sits centrally on the card (see finished card).

Die cut a selection of leaves from the Intricate dies and the Forever Flourishing dies in both colours and adhere to the card front as shown.

Die cut the smallest of the rectangles in white card and the next size up in pear pizzazz.

Stamp the sentiment on the small die cut and add to the larger one.

On the two remaining pieces of white card, stamp another sentiment and a couple of leaves on one piece and lots of leaves on the other and adhere them to the inside of the smaller card as shown.

Add the sentiment to the card front over the bottom of the stems using dimensionals. Sprinkle some gems/rhinestones to embellish and the card is complete.
