Welcome back!!! Today I am sharing a Joy Fold card. Once again I used a tutorial found on the Splitcoaststampers website. This tutorial was written by Beate Johns and, like the shadow box tutorial, was easy to follow since she included pictures for each step of the process.
Without further ado...my first Joy Fold card (but certainly not my last!):
Cardstock: DCWV "The Lodge Stack", Standard Blue, White, and Light Blue Cardstock
Stamp(s): Pink by Design "Sandy Toes" Stamp Set (sentiments)
Stamp Pads: TPC Clearly Better Inks in "Silver" and "Chocolate"
Brads: The Eyelet Outlet Pearl Starfish Brads in "Cream" and "Blue"
Ribbon: Dashes, Dots & Checks
Mini Glue Dots
Since it is hard to show all the different levels of the Joy Fold card in one photo, I thought I'd share a couple of additional images to help you understand the concept :)

Second layer opened - the sentiment reads "Wish you were here!"
I had a lot of fun creating this card, and definitely could see myself making several more in the Joy Fold style. Even with a few hiccups here and there, it was fairly easy to put together and - don't tell my Expression/Imagine (or hubby for that matter) - it was nice to have a card that was machine-free! :-D
