I have my stamp club tomorrow and our hostess asked if I could show them how to make a Double Z fold card. I decided to work this in with the challenge at The Paper Players this week which is to add a flower to your project. There are so many beautiful cards on their site, it is inspiring.
This is the outside of the card. I have used a band to keep it closed and added a beautiful paper flower, which is something else I’ll be able to teach my club ladies. I first saw one on Joanne Leddy’s blog, there is a tutorial here if you’d like to see how it’s done.
This is how the card looks once you remove the band and open it up.
Stamps : Fresh Vintage, Field Flowers
Card : black, vanilla, everyday enchantment dsp, poppy parade
Ink : stazon, calypso coral & lucky limeade markers, crumb cake
Other : boho, fancy flower, 5 petal flower punches, everyday enchantment ribbon and brad
I think the ladies are going to love making this card.
I hope so anyway :)
FYI : I have been asked if I would provide the measurements for this card, so here they are.
I have altered it from other z-fold instructions I've seen so that I didn't have to use 12 x 12" card.
Cut base card at 15 x 27cm
Score at 4 1/2 and 9 cm in from both ends. (Card is in landscape orientation).
Fold in second score line at both ends and fold back out on first score.
