A Tutorial for La-La Land Crafts - Standing Joy Fold Card

Today I have a little tutorial for a card fold I've used many times, the joy fold, but this time I've turned it 90 degrees to make it a Standing Joy Fold Card for a bit of added fun.

Here's what you'll need...

 Paper Doll Marci {Happy} plus sentiment

Corner Punch
White, yellow and green card
Patterned Papers

Cut your white card to 11" x 5.5" and score at 2 3/4" and 5.5". Concertina fold as shown. Use your corner punch on all of the corners which will face towards the top of the finished card {use the photo as a guide}. Cut patterned papers to fit and mat with yellow card before attaching to the card base. Fold into shape.

Die cut the largest Stitched Tag in craft chipboard and attach to the card front, at an angle like mine if you wish.

Die cut the smallest Double Stitched Cirlces in patterned paper and mat with a yellow die cut Pierced Scalloped Circles in yellow. Use the brad to attach it to the back of the card, positioning it so it holds the card together when the Stitched Tag is tucked under it. Decorate as desired or use my card as inspiration.

Side view to show the fold better.

And to neaten up the back I covered the brad legs with another die cut Pierced Scalloped Circle.

 I hope you enjoyed this new take on a old fold and give it a go yourself.
