Snowman Z Fold Card

I love Z fold cards but haven't made one in ages so I thought I'd make one using my new snowman stamp. Huge thanks to my good friend Jan for this lovely gift, he's a cutie! The card measures 5 3/4" square. I scored the front panel at 2 7/8" and folded it back to form the Z fold card.

I coloured my snowman with Coloursoft pencils and solvent. After cutting him out with a Labels Eight Nestie die, I sponged on some Bashful Blue ink. I've decorated his hat and coat with Polar White Flower Soft to add some fluffiness! Click on the photo to get a larger view to see it better.

The sentiment is stamped on a Label Trio die with a punched snowflake. Actually, it's half the sentiment, the other half is on the inside of the card. I covered the back of the card with Bashful Blue patterned paper and added Bashful Blue striped grosgrain ribbon to the front.

Here is a photo showing the rest of the sentiment inside the card:

I couldn't resist blinging my snowflakes up with pale blue crystals!

hey, Z Fold cards are great and easy to make, in case that I'll ever get out of the office today (and I am not sure about that) I will try to make a birthdaycard for my aunt this way ;)
