Stamp-Off Double Z-Fold Card Challenge
It’s another Stamp-Off Friday! (Cue the confetti and balloons!)
So I have to admit – “fun fold” challenges aren’t my thing. They’re fun once you get into them, but I like sketches, color challenges, and tic tac toe challenges.
At our Craft Night, I decided to re-create a cute little snowman card that a friend had given me. I wanted to turn it into a sweater using the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) – and it looked wonderful. The only problem I ran into was when I embedded the snowman and snow into the card with the TIEF, it just looked like a big blob of white snow. Poor snowman. I added a bit of Soft Sky ink and some glitter, and he was back.
And then it hit me. Why not use this for the Double Z Fun Fold Card Challenge? Why not, indeed! It worked really well (thanks, Christy and Liz, for the creative input).
Here’s the original snowman embedded in the sweater.
And here’s the rest of the card. I added some of the trees from the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits Dies (found in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog), and a snowman and sentiment from the Snow Place stamp set and coordinating Snow Friends Framelits from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.
The skinny strip is simply a 1/2″ x 11″ strip of Soft Sky card stock covered with “greenery” from the Flourish Thinlits dies. I hadn’t really planned ahead, so I had limited supplies with me. I think it turned out really well, though!
Here’s a look from the side so you can see the double-z. Of course, it’s not a Z since I turned it on its side. Susan’s not the only one who can “go rogue.”
Have a wonderful day!
