Sweet Symmetry Double Z Fold Thank You Card. Ink Stamp Share December 2021 Showcase Blog Hop

 Good Afternoon Everyone

I'm blog hopping with the fabulous Ink Stamp Share Ladies today and it's the Showcase hop, so you are going to see a huge variety of different projects as we don't have a set theme.

I've made a Double Z Fold Card decorated with the stunning In Symmetry Suite. I've made this type of fold lots of times, and it always amazes me how different each one looks because of the DSP and finishing. This particular paper pack is pretty bold and makes a fabulous background for my floral cluster and sentiment.

1pc - 2 1/4" x 2 1/2"

Fold and burnish both pieces of Bumblebee card stock, making sure you create a Z shape ( fold in half and then back on itself).

Now add all the DSP  and white card to the bases. Put the basic white onto the back of the card, and then you will find that all the rest just fit in one place so it's pretty easy to find their homes. 

Adhere the smaller z fold to the larger one, the larger piece has the bigger back panel to the right, the smaller piece leads with the larger panel. Add liquid glue to the back of the smallest panel on the small z fold piece and adhere to the centre of the larger back panel.

Now, fold all the pieces down, don't worry some to the edges will overlap - then add adhesive to the front piece of the smaller z, making sure you only add adhesive to the section that will be stuck to the other piece, otherwise you will just make a mess and stick it all closed!!

Stamp a selection of the Flowers and leaves, fussy cut and arrange in a cluster on the front panel. Add the sentiment to the centre,which has been cut using the scallop punch. I also added a bit of Bumblebee ink to the edges.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and will give it a go yourself, but before you do - please continue through the hop and see what everyone else has been creating this week. Please Click on the next button and see what the talented Libby Fens has to share...
