Hi! How are you today? I bit chilly this morning running my youngest to school but it should warm up as the day goes on. Fall is my favorite time of year – I love seeing all the color and the smell in the air on a crisp fall day just can’t be beat. I made this card for a swap I was in using the Z-Joy Fold combination.
It combines two of my favorite sets – Vintage Leaves and Lovely as a Tree. I needed to make 8 of these cards, so I also incorporated the One Sheet Wonder technique. For that technique, I took an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped all over it with the different leaves from the two sets in 3 different colors. After you have finished stamping, cut it up. In my case, I cut the sheet into 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 rectangles – which yielded exactly what I needed. What I love about this – no two cards are exactly alike!
For the Z-Joy Fold, here is what you do:
Base – 4 1/4 x 11″ – score along the 11″ side at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4. Fold up on the 5 1/2″ score and down on the 8 1/4″ score line.
For the Joy Panel – 3″ x 8″ – score at 4″
Attach the back of the Joy Panel to the back of the Z panel so the opening overlaps the “Mountain” fold at 8 1/4″
Add an element to tuck the front of the Joy Panel (in my case it is the leaf on the lower left) behind to help the card keep its shape.
Pretty easy to do and oh so cute!
Hope you enjoyed today’s card!
