Hey, everyone, and welcome to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! This week Frances has challenged us to made a card with more than one fold. I don’t mind admitting that I’m not a fan of all those crazy folds, but I’d been wanting to try this idea that I saw so I didn’t dread it too much. Let me say right up front that is card is a shameless CASE of THIS card by Jennifer McGuire and I love how it turned out! I might be doing more of these Z-fold cards in the future now ;-) Many thanks to Jennifer for the inspiration and instructions.
My card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and I used LJD Blissful Butterflies and LJD Blissful Butterflies Die-namics for the partial die-cutting images. I won’t bore you with the step by step—just click on the link to Jennifers—I followed her instructions to the letter. For the striped strips on the sides, I stamped up some pretty paper with Plaid Builder Background and Lemon Drop ink, Orange Fizz ink, and Razzle Berry ink. The sentiment is from LJD Blissful Butterflies and was stamped with Steel Gray ink. I finished off with some enamel dots.
Here’s what it looks like opened up:
