Pretty Hand-Penned Fun Fold Thank You Card - Kylie's International Gallery

 Hi Everyone,

Today I have made a pretty, delicate Z Fold  thank you card using the beautiful Hand-Penned dsp and the Elegantly Said stamp set and the Scalloped Contour dies. I was lucky enough last month to be voted in the Top Ten in the Gallery so many thanks to all of you who supported me. I'm going for the double, will you help me by voting for me again this month? I'd be really grateful. Click on the link below to go to the voting page:



1 piece of blushing bride card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" and a scrap for the bow
1 piece of basic white approx 2 3/4" x 4", 1 piece approx 2" x 3 1/4"
1 piece of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 2 pieces 1 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of contrasting dsp 3 1/4" x 4 3/4"
Blushing bride ink
Basic gray ink
Elegantly Said stamp set
Hand Penned Petals stamp set
Scalloped Contour dies
Pierced bloom dies
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive
Basic pearls


On the long side, score the card at 4 1/4" and fold and burnish, then fold the top back on itself (fold the front in half), this makes the Z fold, burnish this score line too. 

Adhere the three pieces of dsp to the panels.

Die cut a scalloped rectangle from the contrasting dsp (2nd largest), then the next two sizes (getting smaller) from the basic white card. Die cut the bow from the pierced bloom dies in blushing bride card.

Stamp a floral image in blushing bride ink on both of these rectangles (I stamped off once to make it paler), then stamp sentiments over the top (see pictures). 

Add the dsp scalloped rectangle to the card front using glue but only stick the left hand side so that it over laps the bottom layer - it needs to look central on the card when folded. Then adhere the larger of the two white ones to the inside of the card so that it is underneath the dsp one when the card is closed and cannot be seen.  Then add the smallest one with dimensionals to the centre of the dsp scalloped rectangle on the front.  Add the bow to the top left corner and add a pearl to the centre.

I do hope that you like my pretty card.
