Copy a Z Fold Card

Earlier this week, one of my Customers was looking for a WOW Celebration Card.  So I found this old copy a Z Fold card that I made using the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blast Stamp set a couple of years ago for my daughter’s graduation!


This stamp set was lot of fun.  The Birthday Blast stamp set and coordinating thinlits were in the 2017 Occasions catalog.  My friend, Julie made her card using a red, white and blue theme.  I used a Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler since that was the school colors for my daughter’s school.

Here are the quick instructions to make a Z Fold Card:

1.  Cut the Background cardstock to 11″ x 5 1/2″.  Score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″.  Fold into a Z pattern to make your base.
2.  Layer your card base and decorate as desired with Stamps and Embellishments!
3.  The bar across the bottom is a 11″ x 1 1/4″ piece of cardstock that is also scored at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″.  Fold this in a Z pattern also.  Attach the long end of the Z to the front of the card and the short end of the Z to the right hand side of the Card.  When folded this card makes a 5 1/2″ square.

Here is a video that I recorded a couple of years ago on how to make a Z Fold card.


I may just have to get out a new set of stamps and make another one!

Thanks for stopping by today!
