Here is a festive fun fold birthday card that has a different take on the traditional z-fold. I used the In Bloom Stamp Set, Pierced Blooms Dies, and coordinating Paper Blooms Designer Paper (which is one of the free Sale-a-Bration picks with a $50 purchase).
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- Night of Navy Cardstock
- 4-1/4” x 9-3/4” scored parallel to short side at 3-1/4″ and 6-1/2”
- 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
- Basic White Cardstock
- Two pieces that are 3″ x 4″
- Scrap for die-cutting sentiment piece
- Soft Sea Foam Cardstock
- Scrap for die-cutting flower
- Paper Blooms Designer Paper
- 4″ x 5-1/4″
- 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″
- Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon
- Fold the Night of Navy layer at the scores to form a z-fold layer.
- Attach the smaller designer paper layer to one of the white layers. Wrap and tie on the ribbon. Then add this to the front of the navy z-fold layer.
- Attach the larger designer paper layer to the large navy layer. Center and adhere the z-fold layer.
- Ink up only the “Happy Birthday” portion of the sentiment image with Night of Navy ink, and stamp it on the remaining white layer as shown.
- Stamp a couple small flower images in Soft Sea Foam ink near the sentiment. Ink up the dots image with Night of Navy ink. But before stamping it in the center of a flower, stamp it onto scrap paper to lighten the ink intensity a bit. Do the same for the other flower.
- Die-cut a larger flower, stamp the center with Night of Navy ink, then adhere to the middle section of the z-fold layer.
- Add some Rhinestones to embellish.
- Then send off to a friend to brighten their birthday.
