My First Double Z Fold Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Thanks for stopping by! As I announced earlier, I am so excited to be on the BBTB2 Design Team! Today I am sharing the Mother's Day card that I submitted for the design team call!
This is my first attempt at the Double Z Fold Card. The card starts with a  5 1/4" x 12" Bazzill purple cardstock. Using my Martha Stewart scoreboard, it is scored at 2", 4", 8", and 10". The second score is folded in and the first score line is folded back. Repeat the folds on the other side and your card is ready for decorating. A great video and written instructions are available at SplitCoastStampers for this card!
Designer papers are K&Company.

Using a 1 3/8" strip of the purple cardstock, I made a band for the card. The Martha Stewart Lace Trim Doily was used on one side of the designer paper. Lace was gathered and stitched to form a doily behind the Cricut flower.

Cricut Cartridges:
Flower Shoppe - Flower on page 16 cut at 2.5". I used Fun 1, Fun 2, and Fun 4 image cuts.
Mother's Day 2010 - Happy Mother's Day is cut 2.5".

Cuttlebug Folder is With Love

Other Supplies:
Ribbon, pearls and inking.

I am really pleased with this card style and will try it again soon. The size of the folded card is 5 1/4' x 4" which will be easy for mailing. However with the dimensional flower, it will have to be in a box.
