Double Z-Fold Tutorial

Yesterday I posted a double Z fun fold card featuring the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle. Here’s another look at that card. (*You can click HERE if you would like to view the original post.)

I love the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle! This bundle is one of My Favorite Things from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  You can see all of My Favorite Things HERE. Today I have another version of this Double Z-Fold card to share with you.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers fun fold thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Whenever I make a card I like to try different things so I usually end up with more than one. One difference in the two cards is obviously the colors. I used different patterns from the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper and cardstock to coordinate.  I love the new In Colors and can’t decide which is my favorite, Misty Moonlight or Just Jade. Another difference in my cards is the sunflower. I cut the sunflower on the Misty Moonlight card from patterned DSP. For the Just Jade card I stamped the sunflower with So Saffron ink on Bumblebee cardstock. What do you think? Do you have a preference?

Here’s the details to make this card:

Measurements

  • Card Base (Misty Moonlight or Just Jade): 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4
  • Second Z-fold layer (Cinnamon Cider): 3 1/4 x 10 scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2
  • Embossed layers (Cinnamon Cider): 3 1/8 x 4 3/8 for top panel, 2 pieces 3 1/8 x 2 5/8 for bottom 2 panels
  • DSP strips (Flowers For Every Season): 1 x 4 3/8 for top panel, 2 pieces 1 x 2 5/8 for bottom 2 panels
  • Bumblebee cardstock: 2 pieces 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 to cut sunflower layers (or cut 1 from DSP for bottom layer)
  • scraps of Just Jade (to stamp and cut 4 leaves), Cinnamon Cider (to stamp and cut center of sunflower), and Whisper White (to stamp sentiments with Bumblebee Ink)
  • Just Jade Ribbon : 8 1/2″

Directions

  1. Fold and burnish score lines.
  2. Emboss the 3 Cinnamon Cider layers with Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. (*I have an older retired brick embossing folder so I embossed it first with the Tasetful Textile embossing folder then ran it through the Big Shot again with the Brick embossing folder to achieve the textured look you would get with the newer EF.)
  3. Sponge the brick using a sponge dauber and the Cinnamon Cider Classic Ink Pad.
  4. Adhere the embossed brick pieces to the Cinnamon Cider Z fold base.
  5. Adhere the DSP strips to the brick layers.
  6. Adhere Tear & Tape to the back of the ribbon. Peel and adhere to the brick and secure on the back the piece at the bottom. Z fold tutorial - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  7. Adhere the Z fold layers. The easiest way to assemble is to line up the top first so it is centered. Then lift the top and add multipurpose glue and secure it down. The bottom piece gets glue all over the back then just close the card on top.
  8. Stamp sunflower on Bumblebee cardstock with So Saffron Ink and cut with sunflower outline die. (Or cut DSP with die.)
  9. Cut an adhesive sheet 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and adhere to Bumblebee cardstock. Cut out detailed sunflower (top layer).  Stampin Up Sunflower Dies and Adhesive Sheets - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  10. Peel and adhere detailed sunflower to sunflower layer. *if you do not have adhesive sheets you can use multipurpose liquid glue and a sponge dauber to apply glue to back of detailed die.
  11. Stamp sunflower on Cinnamon Cider cardstock with Cinnamon Cider ink and cut out with die. Snip petals off and adhere to center of sunflower.
  12. Stamp 4 leaves on Just Jade cardstock with Just Jade ink and cut with leaf die.
  13. Adhere sunflower to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere leaves with glue dots.
  14. Stamp sentiments on Whisper White with Bumblebee Ink and cut with paper snips, dies or punch. Adhere to card. Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers fun fold card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Can you spot any other differences? (This reminds me of those pictures in Highlights magazines from the doctors office when I was little! I loved doing those!) Which one do you prefer? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below.

V is for Valentine

Welcome back to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I have a card & gift to share with you. I used the Everything Festive Stamp Set with the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper to create this Valentine card and Hershey Nugget treat box.

This card could be used for anytime of the year to let someone know you love them.

Stampin' Up! Valentine Card Idea made with Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, Everything Festive Stamp Set, and Stitched Nested Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The designer series paper and gold shimmer ribbon I used are part of the Christmastime is Here Suite which is only available this month (while supplies last).  Here’s the details if you would like to make this card:

Materials & Measurements

  • Cherry Cobbler:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for card base
  • Gold Foil: 2 1/4 x 4 1/4, 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, 1/4 x 6 for envelope flap,  scraps to cut hearts from Stitched Be Mine Dies
  • Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper: 2 x 4 1/4, 3 x 4, 2 x 6
  • Whisper White: 2 x 3 1/2 to stamp sentiment in Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut with Stitched Nested Die, 4 x 5 1/4 for inside card
  • Gold Glimmer Ribbon: ~10 inches to wrap around DSP layer and tie a simple knot

You can use this card “formula” with other DSP and sentiments for any occasion. The ribbon layer and sentiment layer are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love to give cards and little gifts that coordinate.  Here’s a simple Hershey Nugget Treat Box made from a 6 x 6 piece of Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The Gold Foil Hearts are cut from the Stitched Be Mine Dies and added with Glue Dots. I followed Julie DiMatteo’s Video Tutorial for the Hinged-Lid Box.

Materials & Measurements

  • Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP – 6″ x 6″
    • First cut off a 2″ x 6″ piece and cut that into 4 – 1″ x 3″ pieces for the Hershey’s Nugget wraps
    • Then, with the remaining 4″ x 6″ piece, cut of 1/8″ from the 6″ side so you have a 4″ x 5-7/8″ piece
    • Score all 4 sides of the 4″ x 5-7/8″ piece at 5/8″
    • Then, along the 5-7/8″, score at 2-5/8″ and 3-1/4″

Fold and burnish along the score lines. Cut and notch the score lines on the long sides as shown below.

Add adhesive to the notched tabs, fold and tuck to assemble the box. Use the 1/2″ Circle Punch to cut a notch on the top of the box.

Wrap the Hershey Nuggets with 1 x 3 DSP strips. (*I used Glue Dots on each end of the DSP.) Here’s what the box looks like when you open it.

Y is for Thinking of You

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ve been sharing a variety of cards for every occasion. I love to make Thinking of You cards because they are so versatile.  You can use them for birthdays, sympathy, get well, or no reason at all. Great card to let your friends and family know you are there for them! Here’s my quick & easy card for today!

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia and Pressed Petals Thinking of You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment comes from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set.  I love the font on this! Here’s the details if you would like to make this card.

  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4, scraps to punch leaves.
  • Pressed Petals DSP – 3 3/4 x 5 1/2
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock – 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 to cut Stitched Nested Labels Die
  • So Saffron Cardstock – scraps to punch 2 medium daisies

I stamped the sentiment with Mossy Meadow Ink and attached the daisies with Stampin Dimensionals.  I tucked in the punched leaves with Glue Dots.  I wanted to recreate the look of the DSP so I colored the Perennial Essence Floral Centers with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the Stitched Label to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack to make the bow and attached it with a Glue Dot. Quick & easy!
