Good morning everyone and welcome to the Fun Folds Blog Hop for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators! We’ve got a talented line-up and…I think you’re going to like what you see! This is a once-a-month hop and…all our cards will be fun folds!! How cool is that?!?
We got a look-see this weekend at some projects using two new Online Exclusives…the Horse & Sleigh bundle and the WUNNERMUS One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP and it spurred me to pull them out for today’s Double Z-Fold card! Take a look-see:
This Double Z-fold is just exactly what it sounds like – this one just happens to be vertical versus horizontal!
I made two card bases from Early Espresso cardstock.
I scored the large 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ on the long side – folding the first score line as a mountain and the second as a valley.
The small card base is 2 3/4″ x 10″, scored at 4 3/4″ and 7 1/2″ – folding the first score as a mountain and the second as a valley.
I decorated the three panels of the large card base by adhering some wood-grain paper from the new One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP (available on 6 July!) on Petal Pink and then adhering all the panels to the card base with Liquid Glue. Y’all – this paper is gorgeous! “Scenes” on one side and geometric patterns on the other!
For the small card base, I matted the cute deer paper and a piece of wood grain paper from the pack on Real Red and adhered them to the large panel and the middle panel of the card base. Tip: when you cut that paper with the little deer on it – cut it so that the deer is centered as the focal point!
On a small piece of Basic White, I stamped the sentiment from Horse & Sleigh in Real Red. On each side, I stamped the bare tree image from the set twice – first in stamped-off-ONCE Crumb Cake and the second in stamped-off-TWICE Crumb Cake. Tip – the second image should be SHORTER than the first -to give a sense of depth!
I matted the panel on Real Red and adhered it to the final small panel of the small card base with Liquid Glue.
I used my Crumb Cake and Pebbled Path Stampin’ Blends to color a piece of leaf-strewn Vellum Basics Specialty Paper. I added a lot of color with the Blends – and let the colors swirl together. Then I waited to be sure it was DRY!
When dry, I used the tree die from the Horse & Sleigh Die Set to cut out three trees from the colored velum.
Using Glue Dots, I adhered the trees to the panel with the deer – letting him peer out thru the branches. This is how I spy my deer here – only…they’re not mulies, so…their ears aren’t quite as big! 🙂
On another piece of Basic White, I stamped the Horse & Sleigh “Season of Cheer” sentiment in Real Red. Then I cut it out with the largest Stylish Shapes label die.
I adhered the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To adhere the small card to the large card, I folded both of them and set the small card in place – centering it on the large card. Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the top panel of the small card to the top panel of the large card. Caution: you only want glue on the TOP part of the small card panel!
Then I adhered the last panel (the one with the inside sentiment) – to the largest panel on the large card base.
I added a flurry of new Adhesive-backed Snowflakes (part of the new Online Exclusives coming on 6 July) and then, to the middle of each of them, I added a tiny drop of silver Metallics Enamel Effects. Once the drops were dry – the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Horse & Sleigh bare trees – in Crumb Cake on both side of the envelope front…using the stamping off method again…
…and more of the One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! So – two Z-fold cards adhered together. That’s all this is! It’s a great way to showcase the super pretty new One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP and the coordinating Horse & Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP, don’t you think!? I KNOW you’re going to want these new goodies when they’re available to you on 6 Jul!
