A Joy Fold is one of my favorite folds.  It is extremely quick and simple and is a great design to use all that pretty designer series paper that we have.

The Joy Fold is a card within a card.  The larger card base and the smaller "Joy" fold intertwine.

This card uses the Most Adored Sale-A-Bration designer series paper (DSP).  You can choose this pretty paper for free with a $50 merchandise order.

While this DSP is certainly a great option for Valentine Cards, it is far from being a Valentine only paper.  In fact, I think only 2 or 3 of the patterns have hearts.  There are flowers, swirls, plaids and much more, and one side of each pattern includes gold foil patterns.  It is a beautiful Specialty Paper!

Since I am sharing Valentine inspiration this week, I did use two of the hearts patterns -- the small Gold Foil hearts on the card front and the larger Flirty Flamingo Hearts on the inside of the large card base.

I combined this pretty DSP with the Country Bouquet Stamp Set and Punch.  The hearts on the front and the sentiments are from that stamp set in the Annual Catalog.  

The two-step large heart was stamped with Real Red and Granny Apple Green ink, and it makes a beautiful floral focal point image.

When you open the small card front to the right and the red plaid flap to the left, the inside of the small card is revealed.

I added a strip of the same gold foil heart DSP as was used on the front of the small card.

I hope you have enjoyed the Valentine Inspiration this week.  Be sure to download the FREE TUTORIAL and make a special Valentine for someone you love.  There is still time!
