Abigail Rose Z-Fold Cards

We all love fun fold cards. They are fun to make and add an element of surprise to the recipients of our cards. The Z-Fold Card is one of the easiest Fun Fold Cards to make. In this Video Replay of my August 31, 2022, Facebook Live, I demonstrate making 3 Z-Fold cards featuring the beautiful Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper and one of my favorite stamp sets for sentiments, Charming Sentiments. Please watch and be inspired, then take some time to make some Z-Fold cards of your own.

 

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions for Z-Fold Cards:

  • Card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" on long side. Fold each score line in opposite direction.
  • DSP 1 for front left flap = 2 1/2" x 4"
  • Basic White card stock for middle panel = 2 1/2" x 4"

Easy-to-make Envelopes for Slimline Cards

I've demonstrated making Slimline Cards many times in the past. My most recent Slimline Cards feature the Hippest Hippos Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set and coordinating Hippest Hippos as shown in the photo below. (If you missed this, you can see the video demonstration and blog post with this link: https://bit.ly/3aNWpn0.

I'm often asked what kind of envelopes do I mail my Slimline Cards in. These cards fit in a standard business or letter size envelope or in a Slimline Envelope from Stampin' Up! or you can make your own with an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock or Designer Series Paper that coordinates with your Slimline Card. Below is a video demonstration followed by a template and cutting and scoring dimensions.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Start with 8 1/2" x 11" card stock or DSP.
  • With card stock in horizontal position, score at 2 1/2" on one side and 2" on the opposite side.
  • Turn card stock to vertical position, score at 3/4" on one end and 1 1/4" on opposite end.
  • Cut away corners as shown. (TIP:  Cut corners at angles so envelope folds more easily.)
  • Fold on score lines.
  • Adhere long sides.
  • Adhere small end flap.
