AMB Illustrations|Diagonal Z-Fold Card|Challenge

AMB1Hello crafty friends! Today, I am a guest designer with Crafter’s Castle and will be making a Z-Fold card using digital prints from AMB Illustrations. Also remember, there is a fun challenge over at the Crafter’s Castle blog with a prize from AMB Illustrations for the winner (open internationally)! Click HERE to see the current challenge.

I will have all of the supplies I used linked below, as well as a companion video. I also have written instructions posted below for your convenience. Don’t forget to also check out the links I have provided for you in my video description box. There’s also lots of helpful links there!

Instructions:

1.) I began with a 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock cut down to a 5″ x 12″ size.

2.) After cutting my card base, I scored/folded at the 4″ mark and at the 8″ mark to give me a Z-Fold. (If you look at your card from above, it forms a “Z” – this is why it is called a Z-Fold card. Just fold one flap forward and one flap back.)

3.) This part is optional, but if you want the slanted look to your card like mine, simply open your card and lay flat. On the long 12″ side, measure in by 2 5/8″ and make a pencil line. Use your scissors or paper trimmer to cut along this line the entire length of the long 12″ side of your card base.

4.) Decorate! Add panels, stamps, embellishments, and whatever you wish! I decorated my card with digital prints from AMB Illustrations since they have digital paper patterns, as well as items and sentiments. After decorating, you have a finished card!

I must say – I have used AMB Illustrations once before for a card HERE and loved how well my card turned out. Today’s project was no exception… their great digital prints did not disappoint!!

Masculine Card Idea//Old-Fashioned Truck

Earlier this year, I posted a blog all about Masculine DIY Card Ideas. Personally, I struggle with masculine cards because I always want to add sequins, pearls, ribbons, and girly colors! 🙂 But as I always say, it’s good for us to stretch ourselves outside the box sometimes to keep our artistic skills growing.

Even though I had written a blog about this very topic, I still found myself lost when it came time to actually make a masculine card! So, I reached out to my crafting friends on Facebook and they reinforced what I’d already written in my previous blog… which is to:

A.) Create a card based upon his interests/hobbies, etc.

B.) Keep it simple – not too many layers or embellishments

C.) Use “earthy” tones or colors found in nature

I guess I just needed a little reassurance that I was going in the right direction with my card. So, I sat down at my craft desk and came up with the card you see pictured below.

Notice how I still incorporated pops of color in this card?? Just because it’s a masculine card doesn’t mean that it has to be drab and boring. Have fun with them! If you want to see how I made this card, I have all of the supplies I used listed below, as well as a full tutorial video! Happy crafting!
