Perennial Lavender Z-Fold Card

In today’s post I’m sharing another of the cards from the February card class featuring products from the Perennial Lavender Product Suite. Building on the last post featuring a fun fold, this design is a double Z-fold card. The Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper provides a beautiful backdrop for the die cut leaves and the Paper Butterfly Embellishment. The card also uses the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder to cut and emboss the sentiment.

Cut Dimensions for the Perennial Lavender Z-Fold Card:
  • Lost Lagoon Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ and 1-1/4″ x 11″, score both at 2-3/4″ & 5-1/2″
  • Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper: (2 pcs) 2-1/2″ x 4″; 5-1/4″ x 4″‘; 1″ x 5-1/4″; (2 pcs) 1″ x 2-1/2″
