Fancy Fold "Z" Card

Hello Classy Friends, Diane here with you on the blog today! I have been making so many A2 cards that I decided to step a bit out of the box and get slightly more creative!

Today I have a very easy and fun card to show you, a "Z" card. I'm sure you have seen these here and there and I noticed there are several versions of them. I went for  the "simple" version!

My card was started with a cream card stock base. I covered the front and back of the card for a more professional look, starting with the front using Stardream Serpentine Pearlized Metallic paper, which I embossed with a Crafts Too Mini Fans embossing folder.

The rest of the card was covered with beautiful papers from the Prima Zephyr 6x6 paper stack.

Before adhering all my papers down with 1/2" Scor-Tape,
I used the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool with Tim Holtz Distressed Inks, on all edges of my papers. I think it gives a more finished look to the card, blending all the papers together.

I used a ribbon from my stash on one of the panels of the card, which I glued a resin Whimsy Heart to the bows center.

To decorate the front of my card I cut two sets of Memory Box Blushing Bouquet that I colored with copics. The little bow on the front is so precious! It is Memory Box Tiny Bow.

The inside of the card I used a sentiment from JustRite Poppies Label Twenty Nine which was stamped and cut on Spellbinders Floral Ovals.

If you would like to try one of these cards, I have a "rough" diagram for you ,this is very easy using a 8 1/2" x 11" card stock. Save the upper piece to make a smaller version of the "Z" card!

I hope this has inspired you to try one of these cards. They are so fun and easy! The hard part is deciding how you want to decorate them!
