THE BEST THERE IS CARDS [DIAGONAL JOY FOLD SERIES]

DIAGONAL JOY FOLD CARDS

Sharing a special treat from my crafting table to yours—my latest adventure with the May Paper Pumpkin Kit, aptly titled “The Best There Is”. This kit offers a charmingly masculine flair, and I couldn’t resist diving into some fun alternate card-making ideas. Today, I’m highlighting not one, but two cards crafted using the Diagonal Joy Fold technique that are sure to brighten anyone’s day!

These cards are not just about sending a message; they’re about crafting an experience. The Diagonal Joy Fold opens up beautifully, offering a surprise element that recipients will surely appreciate. It’s an excellent choice for anyone looking to add a twist to traditional card designs.

About the Cards:
For those of you who love a blend of simplicity and style, these cards are a perfect project. Utilizing the sturdy card bases provided in the Paper Pumpkin Kit, I decided to enhance them with a splash of color. By incorporating the eye-catching designer series paper from the Neutrals pack, each card stands out with its dynamic background. The joy fold itself is layered with coordinating card stock, creating a delightful contrast that pops.

More Joy Folds?
I’ve created more Diagonal Joy Fold card tutorials that shows this technique in different styles and occasions. Check out the SERIES section below to explore more creative possibilities.

Craft Along:
Ready to try your hand at making these? I’ve put together everything you need to get started. Below in the INSTRUCTIONS section, you’ll find step-by-step instructions, a handy template for the fold, precise measurements, and a complete supply list—all available in a free PDF. Plus, for those who prefer a visual aid, don’t miss my video class on how to master the Diagonal Joy Fold.
