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…

  1. Such beautiful cards as always, Jennifer! I’m in love with the layered candles set. I can see using that in so many ways.

  2. My favorite from the new Altenew release is the Brilliant Baubles stamp set. Out of all of the color layering ornament stamp set like this before. It’s beautiful and I can see myself using this on my cards, in my scrapbook albums and my December Dailies albums so this stamp set would be totally loved! I’d probably even do a set of Christmas cards one year!

    I love the cards you shared, I some folded card with some pop-up elements on them so I think your Double Z Fold card, thanks Lila, will come in handy!! Thanks again for sharing!! ,

  3. Your video for the Double Z technique is fabulous. I already put it in my “Watch again later” section because I want to learn how to do this “Lila named” style of card. I love the Altenew set for making the wreaths. The one you made looks so easy yet has SO much detail and fullness to it. Love it!!! I also really like the exquisite snowflake on the last card and the fun idea of enclosing a gift card.

  4. Love these fun fold cards, Jennifer, especially the cute birthday candles! Love the flames on the candles! Thanks for all the inspiration.

  5. This Double Z definitely did not put me to sleep! Can’t wait to try the different variations..Jennifer’s demos and tricks/tips are always an inspiration for my card making adventures 🤗

  6. So many products available lately that it’s terrible narrowing it down to my allotment each month. I love the birthday candles too. It’s a must order item but when Jennifer uses them in the videos, it takes awhile for everything to come back in stock. Jennifer, you are such an inspiration to me and I never miss a video. Thank for what you do!!!!!!!!! Hugs.

  7. Wonderful work as always Jennifer! I haven’t made a z fold let alone a double z fold card before, and I’m really looking forward to trying it out for my Christmas cards! This was such an awesome release. Can’t wait to try the candlelight stamp set out!!

  8. Really enjoyed the video and all of your amazing cards!! Would love the Peaceful wreath complete set and the Fine Frames Cover dies.

  9. Great video and technique. Especially love the layered snowflake card. Can you ever have too many snowflake dies/stamps? I think not.

  19. What gorgeous cards!! I love the card where you used the Dainty Swiss Dies. That card is very beautiful and I love the lovely colors you chose. What a great idea to make it a gift card holder!!

  20. I love these double z-folded cards. They are so relatively easy, yet they look like someone really fussed with it! I especially love the double z-folded Christmas card that had the wreath and “Peace” on it. It looked so elegant! I can’t wait to try to make some of these cards… maybe tonight before I go to bed! I am very thankful that you share your talent and many, many, many cards using varied techniques! WOW!!!!!!! I love to get your emails and see what kind of cards you have just made!!
