Cherry, Onyx and Glitter - A Simple Stunning Z-Fold Christmas Card
How do you make a z-fold? It really is super simple. Take a 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" piece of vanilla cardstock. Score at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4". Fold the first flap back at the 2 1/8" score line and the second fold is forward at the 4 1/4" line like a regular card fold. That's it - z-fold is done. :)
To decorate it, add onyx strips to the vanilla card base. I put one strip on each fold and a half-inch strip on the right side. Take the ornament die cut and put a 1/2" piece of red-line tape across the center. Add champagne glitter and exclaim "that's so pretty!" and then continue on with the card. :) Center your cherry ornament and glue it down (only put adhesive on half as the other half will be exposed). :)
The ornament die cut shape is from the Vintage Labels 2 die set which is currently unavailable. But, you could easily do this with a circle or scalloped circle or diamond or any other cute shape.
Add the bow from the small bow die and add your sentiment inside and you're done. Easy peasy!
Have a wonderfully creative day!!!
