I’d like to share a little Tutorial with you today. It’s for a “Z” Fold Card. So easy you’re going to love it!!!
Z Fold Card 036
Isn’t it cute??? I just love how fresh and Summery it is!
Want to learn how to make this??? Just follow these few simple steps.
Z Fold Card 017 assemble all your goodies you want to use including your Simply Scored.
Cardstock Sizes are:
  • Card Base 4 1/4 x 9 3/4 and scored at 2 3/4 x 5 1/2
  • Green Mat is cute to 2 5/8 x 3 7/8
  • DSP cut to 2 1/2 x 3 7/8 using the Summer Smooches
  • Square Scallop Die Cut in Red
  • Image piece in White cut to 2 5/8 x 2 5/8
  • White and Green Card Stock for Daisy Die
Z Fold Card 018
score card base at 2 3/4 x 5 1/2
Z Fold Card 019
It should fold like this…..
Z Fold Card 020
Separate out  your Daisies and use your two-way Glue Pen to glue to each other making a cluster and let dry.
Z Fold Card 022 Z Fold Card 023
Z Fold Card 024
Stamp Sentiment on your small white square and mat with the red scallop.
Z Fold Card 025
Using your Cropodile punch a small hole to accommodate the cute little Summer Smooches Brad that will sit in the center of your Daisy and then it will attach to the Red Scallop……like this.

Z Fold Card 028
The back will look like this. The beauty of this is that it won’t get top heavy as it is attached to the mat rather than just sitting there attached with a glue dot.

Next you will add a few dimensionals to the back so you can attach to the card. Don’t add them to the side that will open as you don’t want to stick that part down.
Z Fold Card 030
Attach Designer Paper and Mat to the front of the card.
Z Fold Card 032
Assemble and see what you can do with any scraps that are left.

Hope you enjoyed this quick little Tutorial and will give it a try. This was fun!!!!
