Welcome to the Pals October 2017 Blog Hop featuring some very “Wicked Folds”. Thank you so much for joining us today. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Stampin’ Pretty Pals treat you with their wickedly folded projects. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
For my project I chose to do a Double Z-Fold technique.
And here it is open:
Watch this video to see the Double Z Fold card in action:
My card is a monochromatic card in Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White with a touch of silver for some ‘bling’. The buck in the Winter Sweater just makes me laugh every time I see him!

I thought he would be perfect with a piece of card stock embossed with the Cable Knit TIEF. The tiny deer pattern on the DSP from the *Be Merry DSP just repeats the deer theme we have going on. A tiny sliver of 1/8″ silver ribbon and the Rhinestone Jewels are the perfect accents.
*This Paper is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper Sale going on now.
Of course, I couldn’t make a card like this without my Stampin’ Trimmer. Of all the paper trimmers I’ve owned over the years, the Stampin’ Trimmer by Stampin’ Up ! is hands down the best!
A Double Z-Fold card is really easy to make. Start with your 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of card stock scored & folded in half to make a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base. Then just take the front flap of the card and fold it in half back onto itself. You will then have a piece of cardstock, when laid flat, that is scored at 2-1/8″and 4-1/4″. When scored and folded this will be a Z-fold.
The part of the card that makes the double Z is just another piece of card stock 8-1/2″ scored at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4″. The height of this piece should be less than 5-1/2″ but it can be any size. For this card, the height is 4″. Score and fold this piece to make another Z. The trick comes in how you adhere the pieces. The card base, from left to right, has the 2 small panels and 1 large panel. The Z-fold piece is adhered to the card base with the 1 large panel on the left and the 2 small panels on the right.
