Welcome to my crafting La-La Land!
I have a Double Z-Fold Box Card today featuring CUTE new products from the November Release! Z-Folds are awesome as you can create fun scenes to showcase alot of cute stamps/dies!
This was my 1st time using Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Pencils! I tried a couple different papers including one that's a heavyweight for paints and watercolors, but wasn't happy with it. I ended up using the 110 lb white cardstock that I use for my Copics - although you don't get a truly watercolor feel, but it does flow nicely. I will play around more - and get some nicer watercolor paper for next time. ☺
Here's a closer look at these adorable critters from the
How I Made It:
For my mats, I like to use 3/16" instead of 1/4" measurements just because I like the look of that better, but you can easily round these measurements up to the closest 1/4" ;)
White Card Base = 4-1/4" x 11 - scored along the 11" side at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2"
Gold mats = 5-5/16" x 4-1/16" (back) and 2-9/16" x 4-1/16" (front & inside panels)
Pink = 5-1/8" x 3-7/8"
Green Words & Trees = 3-7/8" x 2-3/8"
White Z strip = 2" x 11 - scored at 4-1/4" and 7" --- then I die cut the top edge with a die from the Snowbanks die set which is not a slimline die, so I had to do it in sections and lining the die up each time. :) I also die cut a smaller strip for the front panel, cut at 2-3/4" wide, and die cut the top with the same snowbanks die - then popped it up with foam tape to the bottom of the Z strip.
I die cut my pieces from:
I stamped my sentiment onto white c.s. & die cut with the Scalloped Sentiment Labels Die
White Cardstock 'Shelves' for inside the 'box' = 3/4" x 3-3/4" - scored at 1/2" on each side.
I attached my front Z-fold to the card and attached the 3 'shelves' inside the 'box' that is created by the Z-fold. Then I stamped, water-colored my images, and assembled onto my card!
