Picture Perfect Birthday Joy Fold

Today’s project is my first joy fold card featuring the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and the soon to be retiring Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper!

Why have I never made a joy fold card before?!? So fun and so easy!! Basically, the card base folds in from one side and the smaller card folds in from the opposite side! Here’s a closer look:

And here’s a different view from the top:

And here’s what the card looks like open:

This type of fancy fold is so easy to make and the possibilities are endless based on the products you use, so use your imagination and give it a try!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I’ll have a 3-D project and video tutorial for you tomorrow! Have a wonderful & blessed day!

  1. Hi Julie, I’m late to the party. This card is perfect for a friend with an upcoming February birthday. I love the fun fold and bright cheery colors. Enjoy your day!

  2. Julie, I just found this cute card on Pinterest. I love this fun and easy fun-folding card. I want to make a few. It was just the inspiration I was looking for. Thanks so much.

  3. Your card is so bright and cheery. I was wondering if you could share with me, How do you put this card together? I’ve only seen this style of card a few times and NO ONE so far, I’ve asked, will tell me “How to make this card”. I think my request is going to there Spam folders.
    I would really appreciate it if you could explain it to me. Thank you for any and all help!

  4. Hi Julie, This card is so bright and joyful. Thanks for all your blogs, hints, boxes, and inspiration. You are so easy to follow and a pleasure to listen to. Oh, and I adore your templates!!!
