Let’s Make a Z Fold Valentine’s Day Card
Today’s card was CASE’d from Too Cool Stamping with Angie Leach, with a few minor changes. I used the Sweet Conversations Stamp Set and Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper for the card. This card contains three double-matted panels – a right a left panel and the center sentiment panel. So FUN!
I first created the card base and scored twice to create the Z Fold. I then cut and assembled the right and left front panels – Basic Black mat, Real Red mat, DSP on top. Rinse and repeat.
Next, I worked on stamping the piece of Basic White for the center, top sentiment. I used the Sweet Conversations die set, specifically the X and O, and repeatedly stamped these images in Real Red and Fresh Fresia around the perimeter of the piece of Basic White cardstock. I then used the greeting “Happy Valentine’s Day” from the same stamp set and stamped in the center of the Basic White cardstock piece. I then adhered the black and red mats and then adhered the stamped white cardstock piece to these mats. I tied a length of Real Red Satin Ribbon around this piece and tied a knot. The ribbon was placed to the left of the cardstock center. I used a few Black Matte Dots for decoration, then popped up the sentiment – adhering only to the left, front panel.
To finish off the card I used another stamp from the Sweet Conversations stamp set to stamp “Luv U” on the inside of the card. I then stamped the X and O onto the right, bottom corner of the front of the envelope and used a piece of coordinating DSP and adhered this to the envelope flap and fussy cut.
Easy, peasy! I just love this stamp set and coordinating Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper. You can find instructions for this card here. You can find a link to my Online Store on the instruction sheet. I hope you have as much fun making this card as I did!
