The Easy Z-fold

The Z-fold card, for me, could be the very first type of fun fold card I made. I don't remember what stamp set I used when I made it, but I do remember thinking it was super cool. I often avoid the Z-fold card now because it seems so simple and provincial. But really, is it? Or have my fun fold expectations just changed over the years?

Recently I decided, what the heck? A Z-fold card IS super cool, and there is no harm in bringing it up again. So here it is, the Z-fold card I made Wednesday during What's Up! Stampers:

Z-folding is easy...fold in half, then fold the front half back on itself to create a "Z."

The Friendly Gnomes stamp set (and coordinating Gnomes Dies) combines really well with the Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper, and I really enjoyed creating this one. You can see the paper sizes below.

Thick Basic White cardstock:

-8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 2 1/8" and in half at 4 1/4"

Basic White cardstock:

-4" x 5 1/4" for the inside

-Scraps for stamping and cutting out the gnome, balloon, and stabilizing the Designer Series Paper circle

Mango Melody cardstock:

-4" x 5 1/4"

Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper:

-3 3/4" x 5"

-Circle from Layering Circles Dies

-Partical circle from Layering Circles Dies

-4" x 1" for the inside
