We are featuring Z-fold cards on the TGIF Challenges blog this week. There are several versions of z-folds floating around, but I’ll share the card stock dimensions with you that I used on my card. This card is very easy to put together and you’ll certainly get a WOW from the recipient.

The bold and gorgeous paper I used on this card is from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper stack. It coordinates with the Painted Harvest Stamp set. I stamped the flowers in Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, and Early Espresso ink, then fussy cut them out. Sadly, there is not a coordinating set of dies for this stamp set. There is a leaf punch, though! I stamped leaves in Garden Green ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and punched those out. I also added a few Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake leaves that were fussy cut.
For the sentiments, I used the Stitched Shapes framelits to create the focal point of the card. I swear, I use these dies on almost every project! If you don’t have them, be sure to add them to your next order.
Our challenge is open for 1 week and you are invited to play along. It’s always fun to try a new fancy fold and this one is a real show-stopper.
