His and Hers Double Z Fold Cards + VIDEO Tutorial

Last week, I shared a free online class and showed you some basic card-making folds, including two fun folds: Gate Folds and Z Folds. Many other fun fold cards start with a basic fold and build from it. Here is one example. The Double Z Fold Card combines two pieces of cardstock that are scored in a similar way.

I made two version of the Double Z Fold Card using retiring products from the January-June Mini Catalog. There are only two more days left to get your last chance favorites before they're gone! Don't wait! Everything including stamp sets are only available while supplies last! Shop Last Chance Products

The first one uses the Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper and coordinating Peaceful Poppies Die Cut Elements. It's so easy to combine these two to make cards!

I had so much fun sharing the Double Wonder Cards last month that I wanted to do another online class. I started by showing the basic card-making folds and then introduced two fun folds: the Z Fold and the Gate Fold. We added some simple designer layering layer to make 12 cards in one hour.

Watch the replay of my Facebook Live and follow along to make your own set of cards:

All of the sentiments on these cards came from the #ShareSunshine PDF. I used different dies and punches to punch out the sentiments from the 15 page document.

This digital stamp set is packed with both lighthearted and thoughtful sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we are currently in. You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards!

As part of Stampin’ Up!’s Making a Difference program, 100% of the Share Sunshine PDF Download proceeds will go to COVID-19 efforts. The #ShareSunshine PDF is only available until June 2, so don't wait!
