Z-Fold with Wild Roses + Tutorial

This little lovely is a simple z-fold card (I’ll give directions below!). It always helps to have some flowers pre-made, but generally that’s not what I do! I like to choose how many flowers and the color of my flowers as I go. My stash consists of the leftovers, from accidentally miscounting, or practicing with new dies or paper thicknesses/brands.

The inside has a little pocket with a tag. I didn’t put in any sentiments yet, because I’m not sure for whom this card is intended, nor what the occasion will be. (Probably not a sympathy card though.) However, I will have a cute little sentiment stamped in the center of the back panel, and a cut piece from the paper pack to put on back of the little tag.

The elements for this card include the Heartfelt Creations Wild Roses paper, the small wild roses stamp and die, and the little lace piece from the album tags and accents die set.

So, start off by cutting yourself a piece of white cardstock, measuring 12” x 6”. Fold in half to give yourself a 6” square, With the fold on the left side, fold the right edge of the top in half towards the fold (3” x 6”). Now select your papers. You can select one of their 6” x 6” scenes like I did, but then you will need to trim it down so that it measures about 5-7/8” square. This goes on the back inside. You will need two pieces measuring 2-7/8” x 5-7/8” for the front and inside fold. Then select your center panel from the designer paper measuring 4” x 6”, and mount it on white cardstock, so that it has a bit of a white border. Center it on the front, making sure to only glue it to that front 3” x 6” folded piece. For the pocket, take some white cardstock measuring about 2-7/8” wide by 2” tall or more, and use the lace edge die from the album tags and accents set of dies. Cut your tag from the paper, and trim it down as needed – mount this also on white cardstock, punch the hole on top of the tag and slip in a ribbon if desired. The medium wild rose and three smaller ones with about 6 leaves complete your look.

Have fun, and show me what you’ve done in the comments!!
