Fancy Folds Handmade card with Stampin' Up Mixed Bunch Stamp Set

I am member of the Stampin' Divas which is a group of Stampin' Up demonstrators who swap handmade cards featuring Stampin' Up Only products on a monthly basis.  The March theme was Fancy Folds Cards so I will show you the cards I received during the next few days.

First up is a lovely variation of a Joy Fold card made by Danette Ruger Throckmorton at Dannie's Creative Outlet.

She used several stamp sets - Mixed Bunch, Four Frames and a birthday greeting from Petite Pairs.  The supply list is at the end of the post.


Supply List
Stamp Sets:   Mixed Bunch, Four Frames, Petite Pairs
Colors:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Cantaloupe Crisp, Pistachio Pudding
Accessories:  Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack - 2013-2015 In Colcr Collection
Tools:  Punches - Designer Label, Circle, Blossom, Scallop Trim Border; Sizzix Top Note Bigz Die.

And, yes, she hand cut the printed paper die at the dot punch border so that she had a smaller die to layer on the white cardstock.

This would be a very impressive card to make for someone's birthday!
Happy Stamping!

Hi jeannine,
This is most similar to a Joy Fold Card - tutorial here:

She changed it up a bit by die cutting the piece on the right with the Top Note Die and tucking the folded back piece under the white layer instead of attaching it to the top of that layer.

Hope that helps.
