This my post on the
Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today!
Hi, Diane with you today to share with you a tutorial of sorts for
my 'Double Z' fold card using the new stamp set
This card is really very easy to do and I will give you simple
directions, but there are great tutorials on youtube for it as well.
You want to start with an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock.
Cut one piece 4 1/4" x 11"
Score this piece (with the 11" piece along the top)
at 2 3/4" and at 5 1/2" (this is the main base of the card)
Cut the next piece 3 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Score this piece (with the 8 1/2" piece along the top)
at 2 1/8" and at 4 1/4".
Fold as I have shown below.
Next you want to cut some pretty paper 'cover' pieces.
For the larger Z part of the card,
cut 1 at 4" x 5 1/4"
and cut 2 pieces at 2 1/2" x 4"
For the smaller part of the Z card,
Cut 1 at 3 1/4" x 4"
and cut 2 pieces at 1 7/8" x 3 1/4"
and 1 piece 3 1/4" x 4"
adhere to each z panel as shown
Using the photo below for reference, attach the smaller z panel to the larger z panel
Now we will make leaves for our card using a Mini Mister,
watercolor paper and the colors of Nuance listed below.
Spray your watercolor paper with water, lightly tap on the nuance color,
spray a bit more and repeat until you are happy with the colors
Once dry, cut out the leaves with your desired dies
(I used Impression Obsession small Leaves Dies)
I colored the Autumn Girlfriends image with Copics,
then applying a bit of glue with Nuvo Small glue pen,
I added Fall Leaves Glitter to the image leaves.
I then attached my 'Nuance" colored leaves.
I stamped the rake and the sentiment with Versamark,
then embossed with Gold Fine Detail embossing powder.
I used Spellbinders Label Four to cut out the sentiment.
I also stamped the basket of leaves and used the same
Fall Leaves glitter as I used above.
I hope you will give one of these double z folds a try as they are really fun
and turn out so beautifully!
