Unique Folds - Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the June 'Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop'.
This month we are creating using 'Unique Folds', and there is a whole bunch of fabulous creations awaiting you.



Thankyou for joining me from the lovely Sara.
Sara always has something amazing to share.

My 'Unique Folds' creations are a Z-fold card & Z-fold notecard, using the carrying over 'Share What You Love' stamp set, and some retiring DSP & ribbon.

A 'Z'-fold card is quite a simple, yet effective technique.
From the front, the 'Z'-fold looks like a typical card, however, the 'Z' is the fun part.

A birds eye view...
Take a piece of cardstock and create a card base; 
29.7cm x 10.5cm (score at 14.8cm) or 11" x 4-1/4" (score at 5-1/2")
Then score one of the halves in half again; eg. 5.25cm or 2-3/4".
(You should have 2 score lines on your card.)
Fold back at the 2nd score line to create your 'Z' fold.

The card front...
I have attached a panel of 'Share What You Love DSP' & 'Petal Pink' cardstock to the front fold.
The sentiment piece has a stamped off flower in 'Mint Macaron', and then the sentiment is stamped over the top.
Once the sentiment is die cut, attach the ribbon and tie a bow.
Adhere to the card front with 'Stampin' Dimensionals'.
Lastly, add a few pearls - I have used 'Grapefruit Grove' pearls.

The notecard is made exactly the same as the card, however, the measurements are:
9.8 cm x 19.6cm (score at 9.8cm & 4.9cm)
3-7/8" x 7-3/4" (score at 3-7/8" & 1-15/16")


A birds eye view of the notecard.


Stamped off flowers & leaves using 'Mint Macaron', then stamp the sentiment.
Die cut using the Square Framelit from the 'Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies'. 
Back the sentiment with 'Petal Pink' cardstock.
Attach a strip of ribbon the the card front, then add the sentiment 
with 'Stampin' Dimensionals'.
And a little pearl.

Thankyou for visiting me, and next up is our brand new Design Team Member, Martin from the UK. I cannot wait to see what Martin comes up with, and he has amazing videos too.
Make Martin welcome, and leave him some love.

Have a wonderful Sunday wherever you are, and I am looking forward to seeing you next month. D x

  3. I like how you added the softness of the Mint Macaron flowers behind the words on both cards. It's subtle, but stunning!
