Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Today I want to share with you a great handmade card that I made for our dear friends.  I wanted it to be special and I also wanted to try out the Double-Z-Fold technique.

All I needed to do was get the cardstock cut into different size pieces:
~You will need one piece for the card base and cut to 5 1/4″ x 12″
~Next for the side panels you will need 2 pieces of cardstock cut to 1 3/4″ x 5″
~And one for the inside of the card cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″Now the next step is scoring the card base.  Using my Martha Stewart Score Board and bone folder, I scored at 2″ ~ 4″ ~ 8″~  10″

Now you fold the 4″ score in and the 2″ score back and then fold the 10″ fold in and the 8″ fold back.  I know this sounds weird but look at the picture below and you will understand what I am talking about 🙂

Next step is attaching the panels to the card base.  I used my ATG adhesive. You can use any type of adhesive that you like, as long as it sticks your good.

Wow this is starting to look really good. (the lighting must have changed this blue looks totally different in this picture)

Once the panel were all in place I cut another panel in the same color cardstock as the base and stamped a sentiment.

Then added a image that I stamped on some cardstock with Memento Ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  I stamped the image twice and for the second one I just colored the wings and cut them out and added a small pop dot so the wings had a 3-D look. I layered this image into two other colors of cardstock.  Then again using the ATG adhesive but this time only adding adhesive to one side of this stamped image so the card could open.

The card looks great but I needed some bling so I added some rhinestones to the inside sentiment and also some larger rhinestones to the dragonfly image on the outside.  Now it looks perfect!  This double-z-fold is really easy and it makes your card look so professional.  Give it a try and see for yourself how much fun it can be.
