Double Z Fold Card

DP used: K&Company Ancestry (all other supplies described below). 
Hi Friends,

Still messing around this weekend with the fun challenges over on SCS. Today's challenge is by Score Pal and they asked for fancy fold cards.  I don't do very many fancy fold cards, but there was a "Double Z Fold" card I spotted on Pinterest that I wanted to try.

This card on Marisa's blog is the one I cased.  Please check her post here for the  dimensions and layout that I followed (you'll see the similarities when you check it out!). 

Here's a "tour" around my finished card via different closeup pictures:

This is the top left.  I made the rosettes on my card with the Sizzix 3-D Flowers Die using the same DP as the main panel.  I made 7 small ones and 4 big ones (and got quite fast at it I must say, LOL!!).   I sponged TH Tea Dye and Walnut Stain ink on the petals and then added Ranger Star Dust Stickles on all the edges.  The swirl die cut is Cheery Lynn Tropical Flourish and the golden gems are by Want 2 Scrap.  The heart, fan, and white rose on this card are all buttons from "Favorite Findings" with the back shank cut off.


This is the bottom right side of the card.  The stamped sentiment is Fiskars Make a Wish Quotes on a Spellbinders Floral Oval using the same DP as the main panel of the card (back side).  Same embellishments used here as the top left. 

This is a view from the back.  The lace boarder is SEI Love Birds collection. 

This is a look at the inside of the card. The lacy background is also SEI Love Birds Collection. I cut a piece to fit the inside, sponged the edges, and adhered it with white glue. I will be adding a smaller (probably oval) panel over it that will allow me to write inside. 
Finally, this is the card closed as it will be presented.  Just FYI, those rosettes are not as dark as they look, they are a lot creamier IRL.
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

I am a little late to the party, but I saw your card on Pinterest and followed the link for your blog. This card is so pretty and feminine, I got out my Heartfelt creations paper and am going to work on my own version. Thank you.
