More Joy Fold Cards

Hello my blogging friends. I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

I just can not seem to get enough of these Joy Fold Cards. I think it is because they are sort of like a 3 D item and a card all in one. There are several layers and so many options that you can do with them. I made 3 more today to give away as Thank You gifts to my stamping group last weekend. There items are all in and I am ready to deliver them. I always try to put a little extra something in their bags as thank yous for shopping with me.
Hi Candace, don't tell the others what they are getting ok.

For this card I colored the stamp directly with the marker to ink the stamp and then I huffed on it and stamped the paper.

For this card I used a technique I saw on Sharon Fields blog  Created by you.  She had a tutorial on how to put lace around a heart and this is what I did on this one.

With this card I used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I punched out a bunch of little hearts and taped them to a piece of card stock and then ran it through the Big Shot to get this cool effect. I ran across this tech by accident I did not know a piece of paper was stuck to something I had embossed with another folder. Then I saw the Square Lattice Folder with tape made a more secured hold. Hope you like them.  Here are a few more pictures of My Little Patch of Dirt. Flowers in January.     

Now it is your turn, go create something fun.

Great work-- I think the stampin' sisters would be happy with this as their February technique. Your garden looks so fun. I read you are supposed to have lots of wind today. We are at 9 and someone is loving going out in the snow but only for about 15 minutes before he comes in to warm up.
