Holiday Folded Card Class - Samples!

My class at Paper Vineyard Scrapbook Store on Saturday, September 24, at 1:00 is my monthly All Occasion Card Class.  I am really excited about this class because all of these cards will be a "joy fold card," so we will be folding a little differently.  It is a very simple fold yet it definitely adds character and dimension to the cards.
I used all Cosmo Cricket paper from 3 different lines.  
The idea behind "Holiday" cards is that we are actually making cards for 3 different holidays:  Halloween, Fall/Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
There are 5 designs, but we will be making 2 of each design for a total of 10 cards. 
 Halloween designs made with the Haunted line - a classic older line with great colors.
 The Thanksgiving (or Fall) card was designed with the Nutmeg paper line - one of my favorites.  I am not quite finished with the card - it needs a saying on the front, which is my project for today.
 And the Christmas cards were designed using the brand new, just shipped, Dear Mr. Claus line - very vintage and really bright colors.  This line really reminds me of Christmas when I was a child.
 This picture shows how the bottom and top layers fold over each other.
 Here is a top view of the joy fold card - it is not a great view of how the card actually folds.  This simply looks like a tri-fold, however, the inside piece actually folds to become the outside flap. 
I think you will enjoy this class and learning the joy fold.  
It will be something you will use many times over.
So get a start on your holiday cards.  I would love to see you on September 24th!
