All of today’s cards feature a double z-fold design… but each is slightly different in size, orientation, etc. To see how to create these folds, be sure to watch the video.

My first card is a side folding double z-fold. I used the fun new Altenew Candlelight Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) — those candles are incredible!

When you open the card you can see the fun double z-fold. I did simple masking to make sure there was a spot for my message inside. On the background I used the new Altenew Dainty Swiss Dots Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

You can also do the double z-fold design for a square card. This 5″ x 5″ card features the new Altenew Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) – it is stunning! I also added a gold cardstock “peace” from the coordinating die set.

On the background, I again used the Altenew Dainty Swiss Dots Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). When you open the card, you can see a sentiment from the Altenew Blessings Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) on the z-fold.

Next up is a landscape version of the double z-fold card. I had such fun using the new Altenew Brilliant Baubles Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) – they are easy to layer! The sentiment is from the Altenew Peace Love Joy Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

Aren’t those ornaments fun? I added lots of sparkle details using my Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen.

I am always looking for ways to include gift cards in my cards. And the double z-fold design is perfect! I used the new lovely Altenew Layered Snowflakes Die (SSS | ALT) and a sentiment from the Altenew Dainty Swiss Dots Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

I used the Altenew Dainty Swiss Dots Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) to create this two-colored dot background. Simply stamp it once… rotate your paper… and stamp again in a different color.

And when you open the card, there is a gift card inside…

  3. So many beautiful cards!! Love this double z fold technique and I appreciate that you show the z fold technique done several different ways.

  14. I’m always in awe of your “paper engineering” ideas, and this double z technique is no exception (Lila did a wonderful job of naming it). The one item from this release that’s definitely going on my wish list is the Dainty Swiss Dot background stamp. I’ve been wanting a background stamp and this may just be the one!

  15. ‘Just for you ‘ was my favourite this time. Those bright candles will surely bring a smile and fill happiness. Wonders handmade! The touch of cool stream is the feel.

  16. I love these card designs! I have watched the videos more than once. I think my favorites are the square card and the vertical card with the gift card holder. I do not have background stamps, but after watching your videos, find this will be something to add to my supplies. Looking forward to your next video.

  17. I love this new release. I’m always looking for quick cards to make for last minute BD wishes and these fit the bill. I’m also loving all the new snowflake dies, on my wish list. Thanks for sharing!!
