SUO Challenge #119

Upright Z Fold Card


Painted Petals Upright Z-Fold Card created by Pam Staples, design team member of the SUO Challenges Blog.  #stampinup #pamstaples #zfold #sunnygirlscrapsOh my gosh… I'm so excited to be sharing this card I created for the Fun Folds!  I have NEVER made a Z Fold Card let alone an Upright Z Fold Card.  It is SO easy.  If you have never made a Z Fold Card, let me tell you – go make one NOW!  They are so much fun and SO EASY.  As soon as I decided to try making an Upright Z Fold Card, I knew the Painted Petals Stamp Set with the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper would be perfect.  


Sunny Girl Scraps Card Details, Tips & Tricks:

  • Have fun making cards!
  • Don't be afraid to try something new!
  • The Painted Petals Stamp Set features Two-Step Stamping allowing you to stamp the stems of a flower green and the flower the color of your choice. I stamped the stems with Wild Wasabi stamped off and the flower features Blushing Bride.
  • The flower at the top of the card helps anchor the Z Fold. 
  • Keep in mind the "balance" on your card… I placed the 3 flowers in a triangular shape to help draw the eye from one point to the next.
  • To create a Z Fold, take a 11 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of cardstock, and fold it in half.  Next, fold one of the other halves in half.  That is the base for the Z Fold and at this point the options are only restricted by your own imagination.
