Tutorial: Z-Fold Card

I really enjoyed making this card because it was quick and easy but had a really interesting look to it when finished.


1. Start with a sheet of A4 cardstock - the completed card will fit nicely into a DL sized envelope.


2. Cut a section from the top length of the cardstock at an angle. You can make the angle as shallow or as steep as you wish, but out of interest, my cut goes from the top right hand corner to 2" down from the top of the left hand side.


3. Score and fold the card into three equal sections. Starting from the shorter edge I measured and scored at 3 7/8" and at 7 3/4" then trimmed a tiny amount from the longest edge to make them all even. The first fold is a mountain fold, the second is a valley fold.


4. Then it's a simple matter of decorating your card blank. I scalloped along the top edge, added some patterned paper, ribbon, picture and a sentiment.
