Greeting Card Z-Fold Instructions

  1. Cut and score card base per measurements above. Fold the first score line as a “peak” and the second score line as a “valley”

  2. Adhere the designer paper to each panel paying close attention to the measurements above because each panel has a different size of paper

  3. Use the embossing buddy on a piece of whisper white cardstock then stamp the large magnolia in versa mark. Pour copper embossing powder over that, tap off the excess and heat set with your heat tool.

  4. Protect the surface you are working on because Stampin’ blends can bleed through the card stock. Color the leaves of the magnolia in light old olive and the inner petals of the magnolia in petal pink

  5. The magnolia flower is too large to place on this card so I cut off the one large leaf.

  6. Adhere the flower to the front and viola….you’ve got your card done.
