Happy Monday, peeps! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! I received a pretty card in the mail from my friend Doris, and I thought I would re-create one of my own. I had this panel of watercolor paper already on my desk; I was playing with the stamp set Flower Patch and my aquapainter, and when I saw Doris's card, I thought it would be a good way to put this little panel to use! I think it is called a Z-fold:
It's a little tricky to photograph, but here is the card folded:
I stamped the florals in Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach and Crushed Curry; the leaves are Pear Pizzazz. I stamped them on watercolor paper, then just swooshed a wet aquapainter around the edges to draw a wee bit of the ink out. Some speckles, enamel dots and a sentiment from a fall Paper Pumpkin kit finished it off. And here's the inside, using the SAB DSP Carried Away and a sentiment from Suite Sentiments:
Basically, you create your card exactly as you would normally, but score at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4" and fold the first fold back. Then decorate as you wish! My angled panel is Pear Pizzazz, and I also stamped the corners with a crackle stamp from another Paper Pumpkin kit! And here is Doris's pretty card, outside and in!
You should try this fold--it's fun, easy and adds some interest to your card!
A little hike on Saturday before the cold weather returned!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a blessed day!
