The Double Z fold card seems to be very popular at the moment, I have seen lots of examples on Pinterest and YouTube. I am always looking for ideas, designs, techniques and folds for my classes and this one was just too good not to use!
Many of the examples I found were in metric measurements which when converted into inches came out really weird ~ 1/8 or 1/16 of an inch! I am not that patient nor is my eyesight good enough for that kind of accuracy so the following measurements are really easy to cut!
Card Base: 11 x 4 1/4 Sahara Sand Card ~ scored @ 2 3/4 and 5 1/2
Front Layer: 4 x 2 1/2 Very Vanilla Card ~ run thru the Big Shot with the Brick Embossing folder.
Inside Layer 1: 4 x 5 1/4 Very Vanilla Card
Front Strip : 11 x 1 1/4 Sahara Sand Card ~ scored @ 2 3/4 and 5 1/2
3 pieces of DSP ~ 1 piece 5 1/4 x 1, 2 pieces 2 1/2 x 1
Ink colors are Sahara Sand and Memento Black, all the vanilla card pieces have been sponged with Sahara Sand ink.
Unusually for me I went a little mad with the stamp sets – I really like to use just one on a project but this time Timeless Texture takes center stage with Papillon Potpourri and Birthday Blooms taking supporting roles!
The scalloped circle punch used for the greeting has sadly retired but the new Layering circle framelits will work just as well. The circle punches used were 1 3/8, 1 1/2 and 1 3/4.
A twist of Vanilla Lace and some pearls for the butterfly’s body and we are done!
Here is the same card but the DSP replaces the Very Vanilla card layers and the Vanilla replaces the DSP.
Hope you liked the cards today – leave me a comment below to share your thoughts.
