Joy Fold Card

If you want to give a unique greeting card, Chris Twina created a great video tutorial on the Joy Fold card.  The video with step by step instructions including measurements can be found here

I am so grateful for the talented women that share and create wonderful tutorials.  Comments are always appreciated, please leave Chris a comment or a thumbs up on her YouTube webpage.

The cardbase with the stamped image, tucks underneath the bird.  This first card opens up in the opposite way from Chris's video.
