Fancy Folds Blog Hop - JAI 74




JUST ADD INK FANCY FOLDS BLOG HOP

Z Fold

Welcome to the next stop on the JAI Blog Hop, I hope you enjoyed viewing Delys' fabulous star card and you're ready to check out another Fancy Fold.  Too bad, I have made a fairly straight forward Z fold card, lol!


Here's a few more photos from differnt angles

This card is fairly simple to  make.  All I did was take a 12x12 piece of Whisper White textured cardstock and cut that at 14.85 cm, which is the same side as a piece of A5 cardstock folded in half.  Then I scored it at 4" and 8" on the 12" side.  Here's a quick picture of it on my score board


When I folded it, I made a mountain fold at 4" and a valley fold at 8".  Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!

The card was inspired by a teeny tiny picture of a wedding invitation I saw in a magazine.  I have also noticed that I'm quite liking the sentiment stamped on a vellum strip at the moment.

Well, that's all from me today.  Thanks for stopping by, now it's time to move onto the fabulous, Kathy Tanner's blog where she has another awesome Fancy Fold for you to try.  Just click on the blinkie below to take you there.
