If you are looking to make something a little different, give this fun Double Z Fold card a try. This card uses some soon to be retired products: the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper, the Tin of Cards stamp set and the Real Red Stitched Satin Ribbon! So make sure to check them out in store before they are gone for good!
How To Make This Double Z Fold Card:
Start by stamping the LIVE LAUGH LOVE greeting from the Layering Love stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Die cut the greeting with the heart framelit from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits. Die cut the heart the next size larger from Old Olive cardstock to create a mat layer. Adhere the stamped heart to the Old Olive die cut.
Tie a bow with the Real Red 3/8” Stitched Satin Ribbon (soon to retire!) – adhere with a Mini Glue Dot.
To create the main card base:
Cut, score and fold on the score lines of the Real Red cardstock (11" x 4-1/4", scored at 2-3/4" & 5-1/2").
Adhere the 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White cardstock to the Real Red card base.
Next, adhere the strawberry Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper 2-3/8" x 3-7/8" layer to the Old Olive 2-1/2" x 4" layer and then to card front.
To create the smaller Z fold strip:
Adhere the striped Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper layer to the Old Olive strip – bending on score lines (scored at 2-3/4 & 5-1/2") as you glue them together
Adhere the left side to the folded back front panel and the right side (shown below with the two strawberries) to the inside layer.
Stamp 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' from the Tin of Cards stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink on the inside Whisper White layer.
Adhere the die cut heart to front strip as shown on the card above. Then, cut out three strawberries from the Designer Series Paper and adhere along the smaller Z strip as shown.
