For my post for the Creative Critterz Imaginations blog today, I decided to try making a Z-fold card. It's super easy to make, and I think it adds something fun to the usual A2 sized card. My card base is cut at 4 1/4" x 11". I then scored it at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" and folded it like this:
For my patterned paper, I used my Imagine to cut two rectangles flood-filled with a pattern from the Imagine More cartridge. I used the 8x10 rectangle that comes built into the Imagine, but I cut mine at 4.2" and trimmed them down. The larger piece is 5 1/4" x 4", and the two smaller pieces are 2 1/2" x 4".
My little guitar playing fox is from the Birthday Bash cartridge. I flood-filled him with colors from the Imagine More cartridge and cut him at 3.8". A little inking, stitching, and google eyes finished him off.
The birthday cake is again from the Birthday Bash cartridge and flood-filled with Imagine More colors. It was cut at 3", and I ran the frosting through the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder.
My sentiment is from My Creative Time's "Wow! So Many Candles" stamp set. I used a layer from one of the border pieces from Imagine More and changed it to a solid color. It's cut at 0.8" and trimmed to 5.25" in width. Finally, I added a place to write a note, using a little Papertrey Ink die.
Here's a look at the card when it's all closed up.
