Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop ~ Fun Folds

Hello and welcome to this edition of the monthly Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop! This month is all about fun folds! Who doesn’t love a good fun fold!!!

One of my favorite fun folds is the Z-FOLD.

The basic gist of this fold is that the card is in the shape of the letter “Z”. Makes sense, huh!?! This is done by starting with a simple card base – portrait or landscape with one scored fold in the middle.

To make the “Z”, you just score the card front (usually in half) and fold it in the other direction. For a normal elemental Z-FOLD card, you would score the landscape at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″ or the portrait at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4″

Here is another variation…

This is the point where I apologize for the ink smears on my cards…

In case you don’t recognize it… this is not my typical stamping place! My craft room is a partially insulated room above the garage – we have not gotten around to insulating the floor! And, while I have two heaters… the electrical needs redone and I can only run one at a time. If you know anything about me… you know I am the one that wears hoodies in the middle of the summer! I like my heat! With these freezing cold temps we are experiencing here in Extreme Southern Illinois, it’s just way to cold to be upstairs. So, I grabbed what I needed and came back into the house. You will be happy to know I only needed to make three more trips for those things I forgot! LOL

Here are some more Z-Fold cards… featuring the Zany Zebras Stamp Set. So, here are some Zany Zebra Z-Folds…

This card has a 3″ x 9″ piece of Basic Black scored at 6″ and 3″. We will ignore the fact that once of the pieces of DSP was adhered crooked! TYhis is considered a DOUBLE Z-FOLD. So that makes this one a Zany Zebra ZZ-Fold!

And the last one…

Since today is Valentine’s Day, I would be remiss if I didn’t use the “Wild About You” sentiment from the stamp set to make my husband a card! The Double Z-Fold here is created by adding a 1-1/2″ x 11″ strip of Basic Black that was scored at 5-1/2″ and 8-1/4″ (or 2-3/4″ depending on if you want to flip that extra measuring piece out or not!).

Oh yeah… in case you didn’t recognize everything, I used Basic Black, Real Red and Basic White cardstock. The inks are Memento and Real Red. The DSP is from the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper – which is part of the Berry Blessing Bundle in the Sale-a-Bration brochure… FREE with $100 purchase. And, both the Black/White Baker’s Twine and 1/8″ Real Red Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon make up the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.

That’s all I got for you today. I am going to snuggle back under the blankets where it is nice and toasty. It’s time for you to hop along to go see some more fun folds! Here are the links…

  1. Love the fold and all the variations! I have yet to use my Zebras – but definitely will now after seeing all these cute cards!

  2. Additional thought, I feel your pain on the smears. I use those oopsies as a potential embellishment opportunity! I have gotten quite creative.
