At my last stamp camp we made this fun owl joy-fold card that was inspired by Mary Fish's post.  It's really a simple concept with fun results.  Make two cards, one a little smaller than the other, and overlap them with a closure.  This first card was the one we made at the stamp camp in June and the second was one that I made with the left overs from the camp. 
This is a picture of the card held closed by the hoot-hoot tag on the left:
Here's the card as it's opening:
And here is a picture of the interior of the card:
Here's the card I made from the left overs:

I used punched flowers with brads, tied with linen thread to close the card.  The owl and branch, including the shadow were painted with aqua painters and reinkers.  The owl and branch were then embossed with clear ep after using a versamark pen to cover the images.  The ep keeps the painted areas from being colored over when the background is brayered.

The moon and sky were brayered by using a circle punched from a post-it note to mask the moon and brayer the sky.  Then the negative was used to mask the sky while I brayered the moon. 
I love brayered backgrounds!

The corners were created by punching a corner of Rich Razzleberry with the scallop border corner punch and then punching the scalloped corner out with the photo corner punch.  Then that was layered over a larger photo corner.

Partially opened:
 And the inside.  The sentiment is from Occasional Quotes.
