Double Z- Fold Golf Card

Happy Monday ~ I hope you all had a craft-astic weekend! I did - got lots of crafting done and today I have a Double Z-Fold Box Card FORE you! I love a good pun! There's a new AUGUST RELEASE at the Scrapping Cottage! This release is so great for those masculine cards - especially if they like golf or baseball!   And if you want it ALL... you can get the whole release bundle at 50% OFF for a limited time! Individual dies from this release are 30% off!



HOW I MADE IT:

1.  I cut a piece of light blue cardstock at 4-1/4" x 11" - then scored at 2-3/4" (mountain fold) and 5-1/2" (valley fold)

2.  I cut a green strip (for the front Z) at 2-1/4" x 11" and scored at 2-3/4"(valley fold) and 5-1/2"(mountain fold)  See photo below.

3.  I used the die pictured below from the Grass Slimline set to cut the top of the green Z strip.  The strip will be a bit longer than the die, so I cut to one of the score lines, then moved the die down to cut the rest.


4.  Next, I cut a piece of patterned green paper to 3-1/4" x 11" and scored at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".  

5.  I used the die pictured below from the Hills Slimline set to cut all the way across the top of that strip, by doing the same technique.... cutting to one of the score lines, then moving the die down and cutting the remainder.  (see photos below)



6.  I attached the patterned paper to the blue card base, aligning edges at sides and bottom.  


7.  Next, I added tape to the sections pictured below on back of the green grassy strip.  You don't want tape to extend past that first score line on your card base, so if it helps, you can place a pencil mark on the backside of your grassy layer at 2-3/4" so you know where to stop taping.  ☺


8.  Adhere to card as pictured below.


9.  Cut 2 or 3 shelves to insert in that "box" that the short Z creates.  I cut (3) at 1-1/4" x 3-3/4" and scored at 1/2" in from each end.

10.  Miter the top of the side flaps.  Then cut the tops using the straightest section of the grass die.


11.  I added glue to the side flaps and (I tried to) evenly space them from back to front of the "box"


12.  If you want, you can cut a piece of cardstock to 4" x 5-1/4" for the back side of card for writing a message.

13.  All that's left is die-cutting my pieces. gluing them together and adhering to my card!  
  • For all the front Z panel die-cuts, I added foam dots to the backs to adhere them
  • For the elements on the shelves inside the "box" I glued them to strips of heavy acetate so I could place them up a li'l higher and provide more stability to them.  
  • For the words and silhouette golfer, I glued them directly onto the card base.

Multi-Tiered Pop Up Penguins

 Welcome friends!  I had a great time last night on a Zoom call with my SU! upline and 8 others in her downline group - so fun to "meet" them and put faces to names and craft together - for 3 hours!  :)  We all worked on our own projects and they were so diverse, love it!   For my zoom project, I created a multi-tiered pop up box card --- no surprise there, right guys?!  BUT, this one was on a much larger scale and needs a 6 1/8" square envelope, which I had to make myself, but with the help of my nifty envelope punch board , it was pretty easy... PRETTY being the operative word as I used some the same Whimsy & Wonder dsp from SU! as I used on my card!   I will include the measurements for making this card below my photos, so keep scrolling :)  The Whimsy & Wonder dsp has holographic striped paper that I used on the sides of my box.   These cute penguins and matching punch are bundled in the new Holiday Catalog, July - Dec. 2021, and so is the Whimsy & Wond

Multi-Layered Cube Card

Ok y'all, those who know me know I love a card challenge - especially fancy folds!  So when I saw this gorgeous card of Lavonne Schwendeman's I had to try it.  And as impressive as this style of card is, I prolly won't make another of these for a long while as it took me quite a long time to make.  But it was worth it for my daughter who's birthday is in a couple of weeks!  Maybe I'll make a (fall/winter) one for my other daughter who's birthday is next May, LOL!     I love how the sentiment and larger butterflies actually POP OUT away from the card base!   Here's a view from the top-ish.... The "Lovely Wishes" foam words are pink foiled on the front and are shiney when the light hits.  They are attached to clear window sheets that are then glued to the cardstock in front of them.   The flourishes were pretty flimsy, so I cut out 3 of each and glued together to make them more sturdy. Each size of butterfly is embossed with a different texture - th

Tutorial - Origami 4-Drawer Easel Card

 Happy Sunday crafty friends!  I was asked for instructions after posting pictures of this box card on a FB group, so here it is!   While I am not the original creator of the 4-drawer easel card that were all the rage 10 years ago, I thought of a way to create the drawers from designer paper ,  when others were creating it using cardstock.  Some had dies that cut the drawers and others were clever enough to come up with the correct measurements to cut and score and tape, but I couldn't wait to find what I was looking for so I just made a simple origami fold box for the drawers and wha-la!  It worked ... and is prettier than plain cardstock IMO.  :)   So I'm here to share it with y'all again, this time using Stampin' Up!'s Ornate Garden Suite (stamps, dies and paper!)   Supplies Needed: - (4) 6-inch pieces of designer series paper - (2) 4 ¾” coordinating designer paper (or can use same   as 6” pcs.) - (3) 8 ½ x 11” sheets of cardstock – can be same or different color

Pop Up Flip Card - Interactive Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Today's card was inspired by several I've seen recently on Pinterest and Youtube and it's one I hadn't tried yet, so I created one with February's Paper Pumpkin kit called, "Bouquet of Hope." These are super simple to make but yet has that "wow" factor for your recipient.  This is one I will definitely come back to again and again. Here's a view from the side.  It does have a box-y mechanism and a li'l flap that helps the oval POP when you open it.  The mechanism is a piece cut at 3" x 4" and scored along the 4" side at 1", 2", and 3".  The li'l tab on top is cut at 2 1/4" x 3/4" and scored at 1 1/4".  If you prefer to watch a video, Dawn has an excellent one here .    ♥ ♥ ♥ Stamps:  SU! - February 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit: Bouquet of Hope; Butterfly Gala Dies & Punches:  SU! - Butterfly Duo punch; Stitched Shapes Dies Paper:  SU! - Flower & Field (SAB Jan-Feb 2021); Poppy Parade, &am
