Z Fold Card Tutorial Featuring Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set

Hello Inkredible Friends!

Z Fold Card Featuring Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set

Z Fold Card Featuring Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set

Have you been wondering how to make a Z fold card? Today, I am sharing a Z Fold card tutorial featuring Dragonfly Dreams Stamp set! This card also features some of the beautiful paper from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper pack. This card reminds me of summer with the bright yellow and blues---remember those summer days of staring inquisitively at a dragonfly or shrieking with glee (or...ok...maybe fear until you realized it was just a dragonfly!) when you were in the pool and one would dive near your head? The dragonfly on this card is fun and stationary :)

Before we dive into today's tutorial (video can be found below too) I have a few exciting announcements for you:

1- Paper Share--You only have about 24 more hours to sign up! It's $35 + $8 USPS Priority Shipping. You get 96- 6X6 size sheets from the majority of designer series paper packs available. What IS a paper share? Rather than buying each pack of designer paper (which can get expensive) I buy all the packs, cut them up and re-sort them--this allows you to have one sheet (which can make several cards per piece) of just about every paper so you get to sample them all without all the duplicates at an affordable price! Details can be found here

Tutorial Instructions:

Cut Whisper White 11 X 5 1/2 and score at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2
Cut another Whisper White panel at 9 1/4 X 3 3/4 and score 3 3/4 and at 6 1/2
Cut Whisper White 3 1/4 square for the sentiment
Cut Night of Navy 3 1/2" Square for sentiment layer
Cut Designer Paper- 1 Piece at 5 1/4 X 5 1/4 and another coordinating piece at 2 1/2 X 5 1/4

1- On scrap piece of whisper white, stamp the dragonfly in night of navy ink and cut out using the detailed dragonfly thinlits. Stamp the body of the dragonfly stamp in night of navy. 

2- Cut the layering dragonfly piece that  fits behind the stamped image out of So Saffron cardstock using the coordinating piece from the detailed dragonfly thinlits. Adhere the stamped image over this So Saffron layer.

3- On the larger whisper white panel, fold the first score line toward the back and the second one toward the front (like you're closing a book). Fold the smaller panel in the same way. 

4- Stamp your sentiment in night of navy ink on the 3 1/4 squared whisper white panel and attach to the night of navy square layer. Then adhere the dragonfly to the sentiment panel. 

5- If you've never made a Z-fold card you'll want to watch the video to see how the two panels adhere to each other so the card opens and folds correctly. It's easy to make but you'll do best to watch the video :)

Stay tuned...my next post I will show you how to make a customized envelop for this card since the card is not the standard A2 size.

I hope you enjoyed today's project! I'd love to hear from you in the comments; let me know which designer paper you chose to make this card. 

Until next time....have an Inkredible Day!
