Book Bind Z-Fold Gold and White Card for the Stamping with Friends Blog Hop


Book-bind-z-fold-wedding-annivesary-stampin-up


Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I'm hopping with a talented group of demonstrators from around the world. Our challenge today it to select any vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line in the tic tac toe board below. I'm going with the middle vertical line and using Wild Wheat and gold as my yellow and a new-to-me fun fold. I have a free tutorial download for you below and also a video on my YouTube Channel showing the construction of this card from start to finish.


Here is the front of my card.

Here is a top view of the fold. The base is 11" x 4 1/4" and is scored at 2 1/8", 4 1/4", and 5 1/2".

This view is the card folded up to go into the envelope. The front center designer piece of paper (3 1/4" x 4") is from the Most Adored specialty Designer Series Paper and is backed with a 3 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Wild Wheat.

The gold foil was cut and embossed with the awesome Thoughtful Moments 3D Embossing Folder that cuts and embosses all at the same time. The gold flowers were cut with a die from Lifetime of Love.

I stamped this sentiment on the inside in Wild Wheat, but this card would also be a great anniversary or wedding card.
