OWH MWT card and blog candy winner!

Hello and welcome! First off, I have a blog candy winner to announce from the Operation Write Home VCMP this past weekend.

Congrats to Kara who liked up this card! You won the stamps and ribbon!

Today's mid-week throwdown challenge is to make a fun fold card. I don't do many of these so I went to one of my fave tutorial spots, Splitcoaststampers, and found the joy card tutorial. Anyone know why they call it a joy fold? That's not so clear to me, but anywho. I like it:

My Mind's Eye Honey Cake
Gina K ivory card stock
Tim Holtz weathered wood, antique linen ink
Nesties small ovals; Quickkutz heart die

The card open
The inside left flap is blank, as is the back for writing space and the inside of the sentiment flap. I purposely chose ivory card stock rather than colored so that there would be some white space. 

Thanks for visiting me today!



  1. Congrats to Kara, and your fun fold card is really pretty! I love the sentiment with that tiny heart!

  2. I love the papers you pretty. I too wonder why they call it Joy Fold? Weird!

  3. This is a gorgeous romantic card. Love the shabby chic look to it!

  4. The papers you used are so pretty. I'm going to have to try the joy fold technique. I'm pretty much just a fold down the center person myself. Your card is beautiful!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
