Z – Folds are a fun fold that are easy to make and a great way to show off both sides of the wonderful Stampin’ Up!® Designer Series Papers. I have a lovely Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP & Love of Leaves stamp set Z – Fold to share with you.
Start with a piece of Mint Macaron cs card base and score the cut card base (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″) scored at 2 1/8″ and at 4 1/4″. Use your Bone Folder to burnish the score marks and create your basic Z- Fold.
Cut the three pieces of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP panels and the Whisper White cs panels. Glue the two Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP thinner panels to the two scored Mint Macaron cs card base panels. Stamp the leaf image and the sentiment (three times on the bottom) from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the Whisper White cs panel. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the stamped Whisper White cs panel to the last Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP panel.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals (only on the left side) to adhere the image panels to the first folded panel of the card base – making sure that that the right side of the image panels hangs over.
Tie a small bow with Linen Thread and use a glue dot to add it to the stamped leaf. Add Gilded Gems to the card front.
Cut the Whisper White cs inside panel. Stamp the sentiment and the leaf image (3rd generation) from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Early Espresso ink – make sure that the stamped images are hidden by the front panels. Glue the stamped panel to the inside of the card.
I also stamped the leaf image & sentiment and added a Specialty DSP strip to the back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my Love of Leaves Z – Fold card. You can order the Love of Leaves stamp set and the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP in my Online Store and be sure to check out all the Designer Series Paper on sale for 15% off this month & my current Card Kit Special offer.
