Joy Fold Filled Thrills

Happy Hootin Tootin Thursday!!!

There are TONS of birthdays coming my
 way in the month of August so I found this a perfect opportunity 
to turn up the notch and show you how to make this 
Joy Fold Fun card for our Thursday Thrill

I think its a great way to break away from the normally
displayed cards and show something 
down right Fun Folded! (giggles)

~ I also included a video tutorial at the end of this Post to better assist you ~

Taking a clean piece of 8 1/2 x 11 Not Quite Navy #101722 and 
cut down to 4" x 8 1/2". Score at 5 1/2" and fold. Set Aside

Next, using the remaining piece of Not Quite Navy Cardstock
cut down to 3" x 8" and Score at 4". Set Aside

Taking your chosen DSP (Inside the card I used a striped piece 
of Razzleberry Designer Series Paper #117155) and cut down to 5" x 3 3/4"

On the exterior of the card (above) I used International Bazaar Designer 
Series Paper #126920 and cut down to 2 3/4" x 3 3/4". 
The solid piece of Lucky Limeade #122926 was cut down 
to 2 3/4 x 3 3/4" as well and added to the exterior of the smaller card. 

All in the details.... you see I added a Birthday Sentiment on the interior of the 
card in Rich Razzleberry ink #126950 and included some 
Brights Glimmer Brads #121006. 
On the front I attached some balloons and twine in Cherry Cobbler #123125

I figured.... I couldn't JUST make ONE, so I attached another lil guy 
on some little treats I will give to my sister with her present. 
He's So Cute, you wanna Just Eat 'Em UP!! 
...Well at least the candies, they would probably taste better! (Buhuuhahaha)
