This is my post on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today!
Hello, Diane with you today with a 'Z' card and featuring the
newly released stamp set 'Pretty Blooms'.
Products used in the making of this card:
Stamps: Pretty Blooms 873
Glitter: Creamsicle G1140
Embossing Powder: Key Lime EP219
Tonic: Balustrade In Bloom Die Set 1488E
Other: Tear-ific Tape 1/4" SAT01
Tear-ific Tape 1/8" SAT02
Misc: Designer Papers, Sequins
This 'Z' card is very simple to make.
Cut a piece of card stock 4 1/4 x 11
with the 11" piece across the top of your score board,
score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"
For the second part of the 'Z'
cut a piece of card stock 3 1/2 x 8 1/2"
score at 2 1/8 x 4 1/4'
(I have the picture reversed, just flip it around)
The next picture shows how you will 'attach' one to the other.
However before doing this,
you will want to decorate with your designer paper first.
Once done,adhere with Tear-ific Tape 1/4",
being careful to put tape on just part of the front left
so it can fold, you can see where it will fold from left to right.
Using a Tonic beautiful die set 'Balustrade In Bloom',
I die cut it in white card stock.
I stamped the image with Versamark embossing ink,
then embossed with Key Lime embossing powder.
I did this twice, then colored with Copics and fussy cut one complete set out,
and fussy cut just the flowers and leaves from the second set.
I added the image to the die cut, then 'popped' the second set
of flowers on top, giving a bit of a '3D' look.
This was then attached to the front panel of the Z.
I ran two strips of 1/4" Tear-ific tape down each front panel,
and two 1/4" Tear-ific Tape strips down each inside (back) panel,
Using a Sakura Glue Pen on the flower petals,
Creamsicle glitter was added as well.
Here is a complete picture of the card opened to full Z.
Using the same Tonic Balustrade In Bloom die set,
I cut two pieces for the sentiment inside (sentiment is part of the Pretty Blooms set).
The fussy cut leaves were tucked under that.
I finished the card with a few well placed sequins.
Thank you for visiting with me today.
