Hi Stamping Friends!
With only a couple of months left of our 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, I've been having fun playing with all of those amazing Designer Series Papers that will soon be retiring! Look for all DSP to be on the Retired List coming out in early May!
My current Floral Boutique Class does a great job of showcasing all of those elegant, Night of Navy prints & patterns! It's definitely one of my faves!
Today's "joy fold" card project from that class is a great way to feature coordinating DSP! The double-sided Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers coordinate so effortlessly—it's fun to mix & match! Which current Designer Series Papers are your favorites?
Fancy & Fabulous Floral Boutique Class!

Floral Boutique Classic Joy Fold Cards
The "Joy Fold" card is a fancy fold style that I love to go back to again and again—it's a classic! Combine it with coordinating Designer Papers and it is sure to impress!
Joy Fold Basics—The card base is created with two separate cards that fold in different directions. The larger Night of Navy card base measures 8-1/4" x 4-1/4" and it's scored along the 8-1/4" side at the 2-3/4" mark. The front panel is decorated with Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper that measures 2-1/4" x 4". Inside, the back card panel has a contrasting DSP pattern that measures 5-1/4" x 4".
Part of The Class Kit! We'll be making this card in the Floral Boutique Class! And, participants will receive a 1/2 pack of the Floral Boutique DSP, Floral Boutique Washi Tape and Night of Navy Twine in their class kit, too! You'll be able to select your favorite patterns for this card, and have plenty of leftovers for your own projects!
The card base opens in one direction and then the smaller card opens in the other direction. The smaller card measures 8" x 3" and it's scored along the 8" side at the 4" mark. I adhered it to the center of the larger card base with Tear & Tape Adhesive for a secure hold. I wrapped some Floral Boutique Washi Tape around the bottom of a 3-3/4" x 2-3/4" Whisper White layer to create the writing space on the card. I decorated the other side with another Floral Boutique pattern also measuring 3-3/4" x 2-3/4".
Decorating The Front—Just like the panel on the inside, I added some washi tape to the outer 3-3/4" x 2-3/4" Whisper White panel. I stamped the Floral Phrases flowers and sentiment in Night of Navy ink.
Finishing Touches—I finished by tying up the layer with Night of Navy Baker's Twine and adding a few floating Rhinestone Jewels.
Two Cool—I created a second version with some different Floral Boutique DSP and washi tape. This time the sentiment is from the Window Shopping stamp set.
