Playing in the Rain Double Z Fold Card - Pootlers Team Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the Pootlers Team to celebrate the launch of the new Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up. The first suite that I have bought from this catalogue is the Rain or Shine Suite which is very bright and cheery and full of lots of cute creatures.  I have made a Double Z Fold card to show off the embossing folder as well as the designer series papers and dies.


1 piece of flirty flamingo card stock 5 7/8" x 11", 1 piece 4" x 10"
1 piece of basic white 5 5/8" x 5 1.4", 2 pieces 2 1/2" x 5 1/4", 1 piece 2 1/4" x 3 1/2", scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of dsp 3 3/4" x 4 1/2", 1 piece 3 3/4" x 2 1/2", 1 piece 3 3/4" x 2 1/4", scraps to die cut the creatures

Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Raindrops Embossing Folder
Memento Black ink
Loose Daisy Embellishments
Double Oval punch
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the larger piece of flirty flamingo card at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2", then score the smaller piece on the long side at 2 1/2" and 5 1/4", fold and burnish to make the two Z shapes.

Run the 3 largest pieces of white through the machine in the embossing folder and then adhere them in place on the larger card.

Adhere the dsp to the sections of the smaller card.

Add glue to the back of the largest section of the smaller card and position it centrally on the larger card and stick in place. Then add glue to the edge of the back of the front section, fold the card up and secure in place on the front section of the larger card.

Die cut the creatures from the dsp or you can stamp and colour them if you wish.  Position them so that it looks like the turtle is handing the flower to the fox as shown. I've added the fox with glue and the turtle with dimensionals to lift him a little.

Stamp a sentiment on the remaining piece of white and adhere on the middle section of the smaller card to write your message.

Stamp another sentiment and punch out with the scalloped punch and adhere to the card front with dimensionals.

Add some of the daisy embellishments to the sentiment.
