Bloomin' Love Mother's Day 5" Square Joy Fold Card with Tutorial

A few stories behind this card... but here is a 12.5cm (almost 5") Square Joy Fold Card specially dressed for Mother's Day...
First off... a Mother's Day card in February!? Isn't this usually the month for Valentine's, Wedding Anniversary and even Weddings at The Craft Spa classes! But this year in the UK... Mother's Day is so early in March that I suddenly realised I had to make Mother's Day cards for classes too...
Secondly... I haven't made a Joy Fold Card for years! Probably about 4-5 years at least.... But I had some papers to use for class... and I suddenly felt the urge! Then I discovered that I was out of large 6" square envelopes... so I had to quickly design a 5"ish (12.5cm really) version to fit in the only square envelopes I had!
And I am liking this shrunken version...the central card being just 3" and really cute!
Simple ... but very effective... and seeing as it is Friday... Fancy Fold Friday! A very quick Tutorial for you....
