It has been a while since I have posted a blog as I have been away enjoying a great holiday, but I'm now back and time to get ready for Christmas. I have been wanting to make a Z-fold card which is very popular at the moment, so here it is.
The size for the So Saffron base card (#108611) is 28cm x 15cm, and scored at 7cm and 14cm. Another piece is cut 28cm x4cm and also scored at 7cm and 14cm. This is for the piece attached at the bottom of the card. 2 pieces of Whisper White card (#106549) are cut 14.5cm x 6.5cm, 1 piece 14.5cm x 13.5cm, 1 piece 13.5 x 3.5cm and 2 pieces 6.5cm x 3.5cm. The So Saffron DSP from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack (#138437) was cut 14cm x 6cm and 14cm x 13cm.
The sentiment, bird, leaves and small flowers are all stamped using the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525). The other flowers are from the Flower Shop stamp set (#c130942, #w130939) and Petite Petals stamp set (#c133155, #w133152). The inks used are Crushed Curry (#131173) for the sentiment, the bird and the Petite Petals flowers. The other flowers were stamped using Rose Red ink (#126954) and for the leaves I used Crumb Cake (#126975). Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the bird and larger flowers. Mini Glue Dots (#103683) were used for the other flowers. I added the smallest of the Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) to the birds eye, and White Perfect Accents (#138416) for the flower centres. The punch used to cut the Flower Shop flowers is the Pansy Punch (#130698) and the Petite Petals punch (#133322) was used to punch the Petite Petals flowers. The bird and small flowers are cut using the Birds & Blooms Thinlits (#141477). I also added some glitter to the wings of the bird and the Crushed Curry flowers using the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897).
Till next time,
