Mice Cream Celebration Joy Fold Card

I've been wanting to make one of these joy fold cards for awhile, and finally had some time to try it out. You can find the instructions for this card here on the Splitcoaststampers Web site. It's a really fun and easy card to do and makes a standard A2 size card a little more interesting.

The photo below shows what the card looks like open. I didn't do a lot of embellishing with this card. I was just trying out the style. I think I may use this for a swap I am in also. Since I have to make multiples, I don't want to get too time-consuming with it. The outside sentiment is attached with dimensional adhesive to allow the corner of the small card to tuck under it and keep it closed.

Stamps: Mice Cream Celebration (House Mouse - Stampabilities); Celebrate (Studio G); inside sentiment (My Sentiments Exactly)
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Paper: All cardstock and DP - Spring Stack (DCWV)
Embellishments: circle punch (Creative Memories); Scallop circle punch (Hobby Lobby); Spots and Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug)
Techniques: Prismacolor pencils blended with turpenoid; joy fold card
Finished Card Size: A2 (4 1/2" x 5 1/2")

Your card is adorable and thanks for sharing a new fold. I want to try different folds but usually forget.

I love your card Judy! That image is so darn cute! Wish I could own all of the stamps in the Mouse House catalog:))) I've only done one fold card like this at a stamp camp. I really liked it, but the demonstrator had cut the pattern wrong so we had to make a few adjustments to make everything work right, so thanks for the link to the original directions. I'm going to add that to my blog so I will have it when I want to make another one.
