Double Z-Fold Card by Donna Wicks

Hi Everyone, how are you?  Thank you Jessica, for having me back again to your blog!  

I am excited to share my projects with you!  The style is called a "Double Z Fold" card, and my process began with my needing a special 20th birthday card.  I had such fun working with this card style, that I kind of couldn't stop myself (next up will be something for Christmas!)!


The Daisy Delight card will be my meeting project this week, also.  What fun to have something fall together right in my lap; awesome!




Instructions:

Larger Card Base:  4 1/4" x 11".  Score long side at:  2 3/4" and 5 1/2"
DSP Panels:  4 x 5 1/4" and (2) 2 1/2" x 4"  (Note: I only made one DSP panel on my samples herein, on the larger card base.)

Smaller Card Base:  3 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Score long side at:  2 1/8" and 4 1/4"
DSP Panels:  3 1/4" x 4"* and (2) 1 7/8" x 3 1/4"

Mats for card front:  3 1/4" x 4"* and 3" x 3 3/4"

     * NOTE:  My mat piece on the card front (3 1/4" x 4") was of card stock instead of with DSP.  Of course, you'll do what you like, on your own cards!

See a wonderful video tutorial by Dawn Griffith, here:


Once both card bases are scored, place them together like my card samples, centered over the larger card base, to understand where you will add adhesive.

You will Snail the right end of the smaller card piece down to the card base.  

To adhere the larger panel on the left end to the card front, add snail only to the "left half of the back side" of the panel, and stick it down to the card front.

Decorate as desired.

NOTE:  I will add my message and greetings on the back side of the card; Dawn Griffith stamped and added a sentiment on a small front panel.  That's the definition of "creativity;" to do exactly what pleases you!  :)

I hope you will give this fun fold a try!


Happy Stamping!!

  2. Love, love, love this card style and what Donna did with it! It's fun too make, really not difficult if you follow the great directions and can look so different depending on the DSP and stamps you use.
