2013-01-23 January’s Shoebox meeting, Upright “Z” Fold
January’s shoebox meeting was last evening. I thought I would start out by showing you the card project that I made to share with the other ladies.
I have long been a fan of the “Z” fold but never had tried an “upright” style. So my project for the January Shoebox meeting was just that.
In this first photo, I took it on an angle where you could see the Z fold part of the card. With the little circle & brad at the top giving it a nice place to tuck the front of the card, it makes a nice upright display.
And a front view of the card open. I added Prisma Glitter to the background and some stray particles made their way to the front of the card. I will have to take my duster and go over the front of this before I send it on it’s way to one of my Stamping Pals.
Lest you think I didn’t leave room to write a note, here it is. I matted the back of the card and punched the bottom the same as on the front. Then I added some sponging and some pale stamping of the same image as found on the front. I can easily write over the image and you will still be able to see my sloppy penmanship.
I really like the style of card and will have to try it with some colors other than the classic black & white.
In case you need to know…
