Z fold

I have a post for you today of a Z Fold card I made for Whimsical Wednesday. For this weeks challenge we are to make any style card other than an A2 or shape card. Some examples are gatefold, waterfall, sidestep, easel, tri-fold, swing, and wiper.


The inside of the card:


The reason it is called a Z Fold:


Supplies used: cardstock - white; patterned papers from kitch and vintage whimsy by the girls' paperie; border punch - Martha Stewart; ribbon - Michael's; birdcage sticker by Jolee's boutique; Sentiment cut with the Sentimentals Cricut cartridge using the "fit to length" feature set at 3 1/4"; Copic marker.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

OMGOSH ! What a beautiful card ! Everything is so perfect-colors embellishments and, of coarse, that unique "Z" fold. The best use of all elements and not the least of which was the sentiment. Excellent work.
