Stampin' Up! "Fun Fold" with the Creating Kindness Blog Hop

Stampin' Up! demonstratrice Stampin' Sacha - "Fun Fold" with the Creating Kindness Blog Hop

Welcome to the February 2018 (video) blog hop of our Creating Kindness Design Team! This month the theme is "Fun Fold". This is litterally a fun theme because it gives you a lot of creativity in the way you make the shape of your cards!

I love creating Z-Fold Cards and this one will be for a very special and creative person who's always been there for my family. Whenever it's my birthday or when I'm going through a rough time, she always gives me beautiful handmade cards and I just love them! So she deserves a special card for her birthday, even though she still has to wait a few more months. 😉

A Z-Fold Card can be done in different ways: with a smaller or wider strip at the front, or two smaller strips etc. So even within that Z-Fold you have lots of choices. Because of the big cake I wanted to use, I opted for a big strip at the front.

The Sweet Soirée Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so beautiful! It's got silver in every single sheet, so I wanted to carry that through in my design to make this a very elegant card. I first stamped the bold image of the cake in Powder Pink and then I heat embossed the detailed stamp in silver.

The sentiment I heat embossed in silver too. As the panels of the strip weren't quite square I made the stitched sqaure just a bit wider with a simple trick when cutting it out with my Big Shot (you can watch my video if you want to see how I did that).

Here you can see a few more detailed photo's. Don't you love the colours and the glitter? The framelits made it very easy to put this card together!

I just love the end result of my Z-Fold Card! I hope you feel the same way! If you want to see how I made this card step by step, just watch the video below. It's a bit longer video as there was no way I could do a short video without explaining this card well.
