Fun Fold Friday - #3 - Double Z Fold Card Using Pressed Petals

Hi Everyone,

Today is the 3rd in my series Fun Fold Friday, and this is one of my all time favourite fun folds, the Double Z fold, I hope that you like it.  Click on the link below to watch the video tutorial.



#3 - Double Z Fold

Materials

1 piece of old olive card stock 11" x 4 1/4" and 1 piece 10" x 2 3/4"
1 piece of very vanilla card stock 5 1/4" x 4" for the back of the card 
Scraps of very vanilla for the sentiment and the flowers
Scrap of velum for the leaves
1 piece of dsp 5 1/4" x 4", 2 x 2 1/2" x 4", 1 x 4 1/2" x 2 1/2", 1 x 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" and 1 2 1/4" x 2 1/2" (these can be all the same or various contrasting ones to suit the card that you want to make)
Stitched So Sweetly dies
Die cutting machine
Daisy Lane stamp set
Daisy medium punch
Leaf punch
Rococco rose ink
Old Olive ink
Trimmer
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive
Dimensionals
Scrap of bakers twine
Glue dot

Instructions

On the larger piece of card stock, score on the long side at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2", fold and burnish so that you fold the card in half and then fold the 2 1/2" piece back on itself to make the Z shape.

On the smaller piece of card stock, score on the long side at 4 3/4" and 7 1/2", fold and burnish, this time the longest piece will be the front piece, this will also form a Z shape (see picture).

Adhere all the dsp layers to the two pieces of card stock. I have stamped a sentiment on the smallest piece of dsp that will go on the smaller Z so that when the card is opened out, you can see it on the panel that is adhered to the back of the card. I've stamped with Old Olive but I think next time I would choose something darker so stand out more.

To adhere the two Z shapes together to form the card, add adhesive to the back of the smallest section of the top Z and lining the two Z shapes up, lay the top one down so that it is in the centre of the card with the same border all the way around.  Press this down to secure and then add adhesive to the back of the longest section but only the right hand third of it and press down to secure.  This should now have fastened the two layers together and they should open out into the double Z formation.

Add the larger piece of very vanilla to the reverse of the card to write your message on.

To decorate, I have stamped out 4 daisies in rococco rose and punched them out.  Then curl the petals with the bone folder to give them some dimension and adhere one on top of another, offsetting the petals to make the flower look fuller.  Punch out two leaves with the leaf punch and adhere them to the back of the flowers with a dimensional.

Stamp a sentiment on a scrap of very vanilla and then die cut using one of the stitched, scalloped rectangles and then add to the front of the card using dimensionals.  Make a bow with the bakers twine and add to the front of the card with a glue dot.  Add the flowers to the corners of the sentiment mat and your card is completed.

I hope that you have enjoyed this double Z fold card and will give it a try and hope that you will come back for #4 which will be the Buckle Fold card.
