Today's cards were inspired by all the Double Z-Fold cards I've been seeing all over the web. Since all the cards I've come across were Christmas or Halloween, I decided to make a fall/thank you one. These cards will be made at my upcoming Card Club next week. I paired the Cookie Cutter Halloween with the new Paisleys & Petals DSP. I wasn't sure if I'd like this paper, but after putting all together, it really screams fall.
There so many tutorials out there showing how to make the Double Z-fold cards. I started with a piece of cardstock cut to 4 1/4x11 and then scored at 5 1/2 and 2 3/4. I used Soft Suede. Then I cut another piece of cardstock to 1 x 11 and scored that 5 1/2 and 2 3/4.
The layers are Very Vanilla 2 at 2 1/2x4 and 1 at 4 x 5 1/4. I cut 2 pieces of DSP to 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 and 3 3/4x5.
I also cut Very Vanilla at 3/4 x 5 1/4 and 2 at 3/4 x 2 1/2. These strips go across the front of the 1x11 strip.
I stamped 4 scarecrows colored them with matching colors to the DSP and punched them out with the Cookie Builder punch.
I stamped the greeting from Acorny Thanks in Cajun Craze and then I stamped to small leaves in Delightful Dijon from the Vintage Leaves set and cut them out with the matching framelits.
The second Z-fold card everything is the same, except I didn't make the leaves, instead I stamped a little posie, I think that's what it would be called from the Paisleys & Posies stamp set. HMMM not sure which I like better
The Paisleys & Poises cards are just a simple layered card using a base of Mint Macaron, and the flower layers 1/4" smaller: Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy and the Petals & Paisleys DSP.
Before attaching the DSP I add a piece of the new Mint Macaron Ribbon fount in the Paisleys suite.
I cut out 3 leaves from the Paisleys Framelits (Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy) and wow Copper. It just adds a pop!!!
The greeting is also from the Paisleys & Petals stamp set stamped in Delightful Dijon on Very Vanilla.
Simple card but big WOW factor. Love it and I hope you do too!!!
