Wanted to make a cool Valentine for my husband and I really wanted to use Melon Mambo, not because it's his favorite color but because, I hadn't used it in a while and I love it!!!!
I decide to make him a Z-Fold Card because I'm pretty sure he will think it's really cool. :-)
Below is the card closed, I used a lot of fun products on this card, starting with the Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape. I added it in three places -
*To separate the punched hearts border from the focal point (I added the Washi Tape to a strip of Whisper White before I added it to the layer)
*On the right edge of the inside layer
*A different pattern on the right edge of the top layer
I also used the edgelit, the small envelope, the tiny envelope liner, the small note card in the envelope and the heart pattern that fits on the top of the note card. all of these pieces can be found in the Love Notes Framelits Dies.
Here's a closeup of the heart border and the envelope. The Confetti Hearts Border Punch was used on the left side of the top layer and I also used the punch on a scrap of Basic Black so I could inlay a few of the black hearts to really make the border pop. I chose one of the patterns in the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper for the small envelope and die cut a tiny envelope liner from Whisper White to hide the reverse side of this paper as it didn't really fit my theme.
And here is the inside layer, I stamped images from the Sealed with Love stamp set in both Melon Mambo and Memento Tuxedo Black.
A Z-Fold Card is super easy, start with a 4-1/4 x 11 piece of card stock and score it at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2. Fold the card in half and then fold it back on itself. Add a layer that measures 3-1/2 x 5 and you are done. Decorate and embellish as desired.
