Joy Fold Card Tutorial

                                              Joy Fold Card Tutorial for Speedy TV


One 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock (yellow - card base)
One 3" x 8" piece of cardstock (red - flap)
One 4" x 5" piece of cardstock or dp (blue patterned)
One 2 3/4" x 4" piece of cardstock or dp (plain blue)
Two 2 3/4" x 3/34" piece of cardstock or dp (yellow - for inside and outside of red flap)

Additional cardstock
optional - punches, versamark

Step 1
Score (yellow base) cardstock 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" at 5 1/2".

Step 2
Score (red flap) cardstock 3" x 8" at 4".

Step 3
Adhere 2 3/4" x 4" (plain blue) to larger side of yellow base.  I versamarked mine first.

Step 4
Adhere 2 3/4" x 4 (patterned) to card front (yellow).

Step 5
Adhere 2 pieces 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"" to flap (red), one inside, one outside.  Stamp first if desired.

Step 6
Adhere back of flap to inside of card (on blue), making sure the fold is on the right.

If you want to secure the flap, stamp or punch, and adhere with a dimensional to keep it closed.

Here's the finished card, using Mark's Finest Papers - A Heinrich Co. set called "Train Tracks".
I hope by adding the colors I used makes it easier for you to see the sizes of the cardstock!!
