More Joy.

We are into the second week already of the current Butterfly Challenge which is lasting for a total of 4 weeks.  The letter to be used is J for Joy fold and I have now added instructions for how to make this shape (under the card shapes tab) on the challenge blog. 

This is the card that I have used to illustrate  the tutorial.
I have gone with the wheel elements of  Joy Fold/ Jasmine/Jewels/Butterfly.

I have used  the closure as being a belly band as I wanted to show on the tutorial that the whole of the base card can be cut from just  1 sheet of card stock/design paper 29.7cm x 21cm.
Most coloured cardstock comes in this size along with design papers from magazines and digi papers that you down load from the web or cd's.
This is the completed card. I used white card stock and a snippet of a digi paper from 'Pink Petticoats'
Isabelline Dandelions that I had left over from another project and was in my paper stash.  The yellow  design paper is also from my stash and I think by SU.  The stamped butterfly is by 'Stampendous' from their Royal Butterfly SSC 1155 stamp set. I thought it worked perfectly with the dandelion design paper.  The Birthday wishes sentiment is by Woodware.  Jewels from my stash. 


 Below is the card half open.
 Here you can see the whole card open. The butterfly stamp is from the same Stampendous set and the sentiment by Kaisercraft.
Please check out the tutorial for the instructions on making.  I hope you can join in the challenge this month.
