We did a simple Z fold card at Kim's Card Class last week, featuring this same set, the "Birthday Fiesta" and the coordinating "Fiesta Time" framelit dies. This card is very similar to the one we made at class. This is my favorite Z fold, because its the easiest. No measuring and no cutting- just how I like it.
Here it is... super bright and colorful, just as a Fiesta should be!
The Z fold is super simple. You will fold your card in half as you normally would ( to form a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card) Then simply fold the front of the card back to meet the fold of the card. So, you are just folding the front flap in half but backwards toward the fold.
I've added the banner using the Banner Framelit dies. Be sure when you adhere the banner to the Z fold, to only apply adhesive on the left side of the banner.
I used the Watercolor Wash background stamp inked in so saffron ink, to add some subtle color behind the cute cacti.
As always, gotta stamp the inside. I had to use that silly little llama somewhere!
Here's another shot, showing more of the fold and how the banner is attached.
I love all the bright, sunny and happy colors of this card and I hope it makes the recipient feel happy as well!
Stay tuned this week for more great projects. I just made a super pretty card with the "Thoughtful Branches" set today and I'm hoping to post it tomorrow.
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
