Springtime Z-Fold Card




Hi, Friends......

I am here to share a pretty springtime card with a Z-Fold Design. I used the fabulous tutorial with this week's MFP Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge where we are asked to make a card of this kind. It's the first one I have ever made. It was fun and easy!

I used the bunny from my Mark's Finest Papers - Hoppy Easter stamp set and the crocus from my Inspired by Stamping - Garden Seed Packets stamp set to make a sweet early spring scene for my card. I colored my little scene with my aquabrush, Gelatos, and Crayola Watercolor Pencils. The scariest part of the whole card was hand-drawing in those little tufts of grass!! Eeek! (I probably have them too evenly distributed, don't I? Oh, well...) I cut the squares for the image panels with my My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set.

I used patterned paper from my DCWV Fresh Floral Stack and I finished things off with two sizes of Petaloo daisies with rhinestone centers and a bit of sparkle gel pen over the crocus petals. Fun.

Thank you for stopping in today. Have a lovely week!!!

Lovely, fun card, that rabbit looks as if he's about to sniff (or, knowing rabbits, EAT) the crocus. Thanks for joining us at Twofers

Oh, I LOVE this card Janis!! What a great job with that fancy fold, and your springtime scene couldn't be cuter. The hand drawn tufts of grass are just the perfect addition, and love how you tied in the purple crocus with your background paper. Those stacked stitched squares are just the thing to frame this sweet bunny too. Wonderful springtime card!
