Thinking of You Dear Friend Double Z Fold Card using Regency Park Suite. Touches of Ink Blog Hop January 2023

 Good Evening Everyone

Today I'm blog hoping with the fantastic Touches of Ink ladies. Each month we hop with a focus on a suite or a bundle. This month - with it being the launch of our new Mini Catalogue there was plenty of choice!

I fell in love with the Regency Park Suite as soon as I saw it! The Images and sentiments along the designs and colour combinations of the DSP are fabulous. A double Z Fold card was the perfect opportunity for me to show off this fabulous paper and some of the detailed dies.

Fold and burnish both pieces of Night of Navy 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!!

Bring in your Mini Cut & Emboss machine and cut out a large decorative frame in Night of Navy and a smaller stitched shape in Balmy Blue.

Stamp the sentiments into the centre of the Balmy Blue piece, then place this onto the night of navy frame. If you look closely at the floral sections, you can tuck the balmy blue piece under to keep it in place.

Add this piece to the long thin panel on the front of the card. Placing a few of the milky dots to decorate

I hope you have enjoyed my project today, please continue through the hop and get lots more inspiration from the Touches of Ink ladies. Head on over to see what Melanie has created next.
