Sending Love Tri-Fold Valentine

Does this card layout have a name? I want to call it a Z-fold, but I think that refers to a much more complicated card that has more folds and cuts than this. However, this definitely looks like a Z when it's folded out. Let's just call it a Simple Z Fold Card. {edited: Someone helped my poor preggo brain! It's a tri-fold card. Duh!}

I scored my 4-1/4" x 11" cardstock at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2". Basically, it's scored in half, and then the front half is scored in half. Then fold it like a Z! I embellished with Sending Love Designer Series Paper (#117153, $11.95). I love this glittery paper! It's so perfect for Valentine's Day, but many of the designs aren't so heart-filled that you can use it for more than just valentines.

Supplies: Whimsical Words (SAB), Real Red ink & cardstock, Pretty in Pink cardstock, Very Vanilla cardstock, Sending Love Designer Series Paper, Full Heart Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, Trio Flower Punch, Bold Brights Brads, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer, Stampin' Dimensionals
