Wow! Take a look at this variation on the regular z-fold card.
My creative spirit has been floating between Halloween themed projects and Christmas. Today I needed a change. Perhaps it was the beautiful sunshine. I picked out the In Bloom stamp set and Pierced Blooms dies; I knew I want to work on a floral arrangement and nothing displays the colours of spring than the Expressions in Ink designer series paper. I also used the Pale Papaya colour designer series paper from the 2021-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ paper pack.
Just look at these dies! They are beautifully stitched on the inside, creating dimension all on their own. Cut them out using cardstock or stamp the corresponding images and then cut out. Lots of versatility.
This card starts with an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock from which you create two z-folds then adhere pieces of designer series paper to the panels, add your focal flower on the front, and you have a gorgeous spring-like card.
