I like this time of the year.
I like to share the giving spirit with you, my family and friends as my way of appreciating them and loving me in 2017. I like a cosy day with chilly breeze gently pat my face where I often recall how magical the fall experience was when I’m in Canada. I love fall albeit Singapore is summer throughout the year. There is doubt Singapore will be absolutely cold. The essence of Christmas brings back the fond memories of fall, so naturally I would like to make a winter Christmas card via the new Snow and Cocoa embellishments with foil accents which I bought it overseas.
This winter Christmas card gave me “Snow” much fun in scrapbooking with double Z fold card layout. I love the touch of whimsical and the cute illustrations of Snow and Cocoa ephemera pack to create the double Z fold card. I was fixated at making it and the momentum built up. I had a scrapbook card making marathon, developing five Christmas cards that day. Easy and complex card layouts – I’ve done it all. My family thought I’m crazy after I told them these cards were not intending for sale.
Follow along to learn how to make a double Z fold featuring the American Crafts – Snow and Cocoa embellishments.
To create this card, you will need:
- Snow and Cocoa embellishments
- Zigzag gold washi tape
- American Crafts Winter Large Snowflake Double Sided Cardstock
- A4 white cardstock
- Foam square adhesive tape
- Double sided tape
- Glue roll tape
How to make double Z fold card?
- Use the white cardstock as card base and cut to measure 4 1/4″(H) X 8.07″(W).
- I used the winter large snowflake double sided cardstock to reflect the beauty of winter. Cut the cardstock to measure 7 3/4″(W) X 4″(H) and use it as background.
- Adhere the background cardstock to the white card base with double sided tape.
- Score two dimensions vertically. The first panel dimension is 2 1/8″(W). Middle panel has the same width measure 2 1/8″(W). The last panel should measure at 4″(W) X 4″(H).
- Fold backward on the score line of the first panel.
- Fold forward on the score line of the middle panel.
- Cut a strip using the white cardstock measures 8.27″(W) X 1 3/4″(H).
- Score two dimension vertically. One measures 4″(W) X 1 3/4″(H). Fold another panel into half so both have the same dimension.
- Fold on the score line of the strip.
- Embellish the winter background and the strip which like snow with the Snow and Cocoa accents. Add snowflakes ephemera using foam square to enliven the snowflakes on the background cardstock. (Tips: Choose ephemera that has one or two common colours to ensure it harmonise well with one another.)
