Here is my sample for this weekend’s sketch challenge.
I started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock.
I scored it at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ , sponged all the edges and with Wild Wabi and stamped the Argyle from Looks Like Spring.
The left edges were punched with the corner rounder.
For the center piece I started with a black scallop rectangle made with my Nestabilities, layered it first with Purely Pomegranate, then with Shimmery White. I sponged the edges of the Shimmery White with Groovy Guava, paper pierced the edges and stamped a saying from Friendship Flowers in it’s center.
I inked the big flower from Looks Like Spring first in Groovy Guava and then rolled the edges in Purely Pomegranate. It was stamped on Shimmery White cardstock and cut out. I added a Pewter Jumbo Eyelet in its center and topped it off with a Fire Circle Rhinestone brad. I taped the flower half over the sentiment layer with double stacked dimensionals (to make it higher).
I punched a hole next to the 2 3/4″ score and tied Purely Pomegranate double stitched ribbon through it. Last I punched some flowers with the Spring Flower punch, layered them over each other and added another Fire Circle Rhinestone brads.

Take your 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock and score at 5 1/2″.
Line cardstock up at 8 1/4″ and score again.
Fold the left panel first in, then out. It will look like a Z.
Decorate the card base.
I used the flower to keep it closed. You can also use the slit punch. Or just leave it without a closing mechanism.
You can make any size card into a z-fold card.
All you do is take the width of the card (here 11″) and divide it by 4.
Score at 1/4 and 1/2 of the width to make your Z.
