A Double Z fold card comes in such a variety of looks. And I love that! I have one today sharing the Double Z fold together with the Easter Friends stamp set. The You’re A Peach DSP has some softly colored papers that mix wonderfully!
This is a card I made over a week ago for a class. As I was typing this, I realized that several of the different products are the same as what yesterday’s card used! And the two cards are nothing alike.
This Double Z fun fold is a really simple one. As I mentioned at the beginning, there are quite a lot of variations of the fold and some look nothing like this one. To begin, the base card is cut 4 1/4 X 8 1/2 and scored at 1 1/2 and 3 on the 8 1/2 side. And the second Z is cut 2 X 8 1/2 and scored the same measurements and again on the 8 1/2 side.
For the inside layer, it is stamped before adding and measures 5 1/4 X 4. Place the two Z folded pieces together before adding the DSP. Align the card base with the Z folds on the right hand side. The strip Z fold will have the Z on the left hand side. It is easiest to adhere the pieces with the Z sections folded instead of flat. After the band is attached, layer the 1 1/4 X 4 piece of DSP. That piece will cover the connection of the two pieces. For the band, the DSP is cut 3 7/8 X 1 3/4 and the small 1 1/4 X 1 3/4.
This sweet Easter Friends is a wonderful set to have on hand for several occasions. The chicks are adorable and so happy. They are stamped with Mango Melody and then colored with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Little chicks need some grass to play in. So the grass image was randomly stamped several times. To tie in with the blue of the DSP, the Happy Easter is stamped using Misty Moonlight Ink.
Knowing this was an Easter card with the baby chicks, I looked for paper that seemed to match that theme. It was found in the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper. The Pear Pizzaz card base was pulled not only for the green grass but to match the stems of the blue flowers. And the polka dot blue is just a happy piece that coincidentally matched the flower piece. To pull the chicks’ color into the card in another place, I used that as the backing of the My Friend sentiment.
Another of the products that are also in yesterday’s card is the bling. Waves Rhinestone Jewels are becoming a quick “go to” because of the different colors. The green rhinestone was the choice once again on that layered sentiment. For the same reason as yesterday, that green perfectly matches the green in the card. Thankfully that green shade seems to pick up the color of what it is near. I love that.
