Thank you Kylie for this fun challenge, Double Z-Fold cards are a easy & fun. There are so many great variations to the Z- Fold Card…check out this Pinterest page on Z-Fold Cards using Stampin’ Up! Products.

Bright & Beautiful Double Z- Fold Card

I created my card using the Bright & Beautiful Suite from the NEW Annual 2023-24 Stampin’ Up!® Catalogue. If you love Birthdays, Balloons and stars this is a fun suite. Great for birthday cards, general celebrations or any special moments. The dies cut balloons, stars, tags and work well for shaker cards. The Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP) is 6 x 6″, one side of the DSP has fun type images of stars, strips, waves, strips and confetti. The reverse side has ombre effects, variegate or shabby (as per my card), giving great texture effects for your cards.

The DSP coordinates with Berry Burst, Bubble Bath, Lemon Lime Twist, Pretty Peacock, Azure Afternoon and Blueberry Bushel. For my card I used the Azure Afternoon DSP and die cut stars in Berry Burst, Basic White, Azure Afternoon and Parakeet Party.

To add some extra texture to the stars I embossed them using one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folder found on the Online Exclusives in my Online Store.

The Bright & Beautiful Suite also includes Gold celebration Specialty Designer Series Paper – window sheets in 3 designs – spots, stars and confetti, streamer twirls. One side of the sheets are gold and the other side is in silver. I used the gold spots for the 2nd part of the Double Z-Fold, to create a see through element to my card. I was then able to attach the stars and tag to the window sheet so the stars and tag look like they are floating.

NB: make sure you use your bone folder to crease in the folds and to adhere to the card base I used lots of glue dots that hind nicely behind the dots.

On the back of the card I have added a panel to write your Birthday Greetings on.
