Wednesday during my What's Up! Stampers? live video on Facebook, I shared a project more detailed than I typically tackle on a live video. I think the result was totally worth it! I used a lot of product, but the base for the whole thing were the amazing Hey Birthday Chick stamps and Birthday Chick Dies that were released earlier this month.
See the die that makes a fence for the farm? I immediately knew I wanted to use that to make a double z-fold card.
To make a double z, you start with a card base (in this case Bermuda Bay) that measures 4 1/4" x 11" and another piece of cardstock 11" long. Width of this second piece can vary. The fence is approximately 3/4" high, so I cut a strip of Cinnamon Cider cardstock 3/4" x 11". I added the fencing that I had cut out using the NEW Natural Touch Designer Series Paper, which will be available on March 2. The scoring, though, is the important part. BOTH PIECES need to be scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2". Do the z-folding on both, then flip the fence piece so its folds are opposite of the card base.
As you see in the video (link all the way at the top of my post), I used Blending Brushes to add color to a piece of white cardstock (4" x 5 1/4") for the inside of the card. I added Bermuda Bay confetti falling from the sky. I then added some Rainbow Glimmer Paper streamers cut from the dies to hang in the sky, along with the "Happy Birthday" die cut from Granny Apple Green cardstock that had the Foam Adhesive Sheets stuck to the back of it. This made it possible to make that entire sentiment pop up. All the party chicks were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Shimmery White cardstock, colored with Stampin' Blends, and cut out using the coordinating dies. Assemble the card as shown, and you've got yourself a pretty adorable card. For a full list of supplies and links to my online store, see below.
