Awash in Beauty Z-Fold Card for Kylie Bertucci's International Winners Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Kylie Bertucci's International Winners Blog Hop! Today I'm joining Kylie Bertucci and a group of very talented demonstrators for a blog hop around the world. I'm so excited to be participating in the Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop! I earned this honor with my card, Lake Sunset card. Thank you so much for voting for me.


The card I'm sharing with you today features the beautiful Awash in Beauty Designers Series Paper. As you can see from the picture below, this is a z-fold card. Here are the measurements and the cardstock I used:

Rich Razzleberry 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" and 2 1/8"

Awash in Beauty Designer Series Specialty Paper Border design 4” x 5 ¼” 

Awash in Beauty Designer Series Specialty 5 ¼” x 2”

Basic White 2” x 5 ¼”

Mossy Meadow 2 ¾” strips

Granny Apple Green 2 ¾” strips

Polished Pink 1 ¼” strips 


This is a view of the card when it is folded up to slip into the envelope.

I added a strip of Basic White for the giver to write a message to the recipient. Notice this large inside piece. It was cut from a piece that has a row of flowers across each side in a border design.

The wreath was cut from Mossy Meadow and Granny Apple Green with the Country Wreath dies.

I added the Pastel Pearls to the wreath for embellishments. The bow was cut from Polished Pink cardstock.

To help you copy my card, if you should choose to do so, I have all the supplies listed below with links to my store. Thank you for stopping by! Please take a minute to check out the projects of the other Top Ten Winners! You won't be disappointed!

Hello and welcome to my blog.  The Crafty Collaborations demonstrators are sharing projects here on Sunday with you. Be prepared to be awed by their crafty talents! My project today is a Christmas card my customers will be making at my in-person card classes this week. It's a very simple but beautiful card!

Following is a list of the cardstock and measurements:

   Thick Basic White 11” x 4 ¼ folded in half

   Starry Sky 4” x 5 ¼”

   Snowflake Specialty Vellum Snowflakes 3 ⅞” x 3 ½”

   Snowflake Specialty Vellum Dots 3 ⅞” x 1 3/4"  

   In Color Starry Sky Glimmer Paper ½” x 3 ⅞”

   Shimmery White ½” x 3 ⅞”

The Snowflake Specialty Vellum pieces were adhered to the Starry Sky piece, then adhered to the card front.

Below is pictured the Wonderful Snowflakes. These are beautiful precut iridescent snowflakes! The bow is Starry Sky ribbon.

The shimmering strip below the snowflake is the Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper.

This is how the inside was completed.

Stamp sets used were Peaceful Deer, Brightest Glow, and Christmas Lights. Links to all the supplies I used are listed below the blog hop participants.
