JOY FOLD CARD FOR THE PINK ELEPHANT

Hello again! This is my second post for today, so if you missed the first one, please scroll down to check it out!
I made this card using a technique I found at Splitcoaststampers called the Joy Fold Card. You can view the tutorial by clicking here.  It was a very fun and easy fold to do, so maybe you will give it a try sometime!

I am entering this card into a new challenge for me called The Pink Elephant (LOL I just love that name!).  I used paper from Craftwell (the solid ones) and Prima (the patterned ones). The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, the bottom flourish/medallion is from Memory Box and the top one is a Spellbinders Cut/Fold/Tuck die topped with a pretty little rose from Inspired by Stamping.  The dark blue panel is embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. Since I made the small version of this card (4.25x4.25) I didn’t want to add another embellishment or tag to hold the card closed, so I added a magnet under the ribbon and the top piece behind the paper. It is strong enough, even through the layers, to hold the card shut.

I have another card in mind using the larger version. I can’t wait to see how that one turns out! Have a great day. I am going to enjoy a late afternoon thunderstorm.
This card is being entered in: The Pink Elephant TPE164 – Use patterned paper.
I also made this card for:
