You’ll be able to order from the holiday catalogue starting September 4th, and it’s packed with wonderful goodies to help us celebrate autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving, New Year’s, and of course – Christmas.

This is probably the simplest fun-fold card you could possibly make … and it’s my latest de-stashing obsession! I’m not sure if there’s an official name for this fold, but I’ve been calling it a Z-fold card.

You’ll need:

Cardstock: 4.25 x 11″
DSP: 4 x 5.25″, and 4 x 2.5″

It’s that easy! This card fits in a standard notecard envelope (5.75 x 4.5″) and best of all – unlike many fancy-fold cards – you can get two cardbases out of one piece of 8.5 x 11″ cardstock, with no wastage. This might be why I’m obsessed with this fold right now …? I made about 130 of these on a recent weekend away! (I had cut all the cardstock and paper ahead of time, and assembled while relaxing in a hotel room watching Netflix with a dear friend on a girls’ getaway …. yep, that’s how we do it!!)

Here are some more of the finished cards:

I’m even using this fold for my October workshops:

Nature Z fold

The October 15th workshop still has room! If you want to come and make this card, along with two other fun-fold cards, go to the “Upcoming Events” page and RSVP before the class is full!

Here’s another card with the same layout, using the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper!

Comment below and show me what you’ve made with this layout! I love to read your comments and see your creations!

Happy Stampin’!

After a lot of trial and error, I finally figured out a sampler card format that I like! The one pictured uses Christmas paper (because I’m trying to use up my stash), but you could use this layout with any designer series paper that you like.

Card base: 5 1/4 x 8 1/2″
Mat: 3 7/8 x 5 1/8″
Four cardstock rectangles: 1 7/8 x 2 1/2″
Four DSP rectangles: 1 3/4 x 2 3/8″

Embellish as desired.

 

Comment below and share what you’ve made with this layout!

Happy Stamping!
