Birthday Wishes from the Garden…!

Hello Everyone!

I am going to be playing with some Z-fold cards!

I saw a card on the web and I saved a picture of it but,

there were no instructions, how to make this card!

I studied the picture for awhile and I think I figured it out!


Here is my Card!


This is how it looks all folded up for mailing!


Here’s one view, opened!


Squeee! I love this!


Another view, from another angle!


I am so happy with the results!


Here is the back of the Card!


This is where I will address the recipient, and sign the Card!




Just Jade- card base, 8.50″ x 5.5″ scored @ 2 1/8″ and 4 1/4″

Whisper White- back panel, 4″ x 5 1/4″

Two- 4″ x 5 1/4″ pcs. to stamp pots with flowers, watering can, gloves, hand spade and boots.

Flowers and leaves are stamped without the pots, separately. All are fussy-cut out.

Poppy Parade- one banner

Shaded Spruce- one banner

Window Sheet- 2 pieces cut 1/2″ x 3″ score hard on each end @ 1/2″ fold ends in same direction (these will be inside the fence, to adhere the floral pieces to look like they are in a garden!


Tranquil Textures DSP- retired, front pcs- one piece cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ (right side panel)

I had a piece of Wood Textures DSP, retired, left over in my stash.

I glued 2 pieces cut @ 1/2″ x 6″ together to measure 8″ scored @ 4 1/4″ and 2 1/8″
