Hello 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!
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!!
