Final decision on the Joy Fold? It's a keeper. I ended up using it for a swap card, and after creating 10 Joy Fold cards the technique was a cinch, even for me! In case this card looks vaguely familiar to some of my swapping buddies, here's the original completed for the House Mouse Stamp of the Month Swap:
Stamps: Stampabilities 'Baking Mice', DRS Designs Dotted BG . Paper: Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Making Memories 'Out & About Glitter Stack' DP, GP110 white. Ink: Stazon Timber Brown, black. Accessories: Prismacolor pencils, turpenoid, pink wide organdy ribbon, slot punch, polyshrink plastic, SU scalloped circle punch.
Slight modifications included creating a chocolate chip cookie charm out of polyshrink and placing the Inkadinkado kid sentiment on the inside of the striped DP panel:
This technique will definitely remain in the 'Future Use' file; now it's on to the next folding technique. I'm hoping that with a week in between each new fold, I'll have time to present a respectable example.
Happy stamping (and folding)!
