Mixed Drinks Z-Fold Card

Mixed Drinks.0816It’s Happy Hour! OK…maybe it’s a little early as I’m writing this but as the saying goes “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere”!  I’ve had the fun Mixed Drinks stamp set for a while and decided it was finally time to open it up.  Of course once I did I needed to figure out what to make with it.  There are a lot of cute ideas out there on the internet but I decided to go with a fun fold…a Z card!

Once again I got the basic idea for the card from someone else out there and changed up just a little thing or two.  Really, why reinvent the wheel?  Thank you Claudia from Germany!Mixed Drinks.0816.1

A Z-fold card is pretty simple.  Start with a piece of card stock 4 1/4″ x 11.  Score at 5 1/2″ and then at 2 3/4″.  You’ll fold the card in half at the 5 1/2″ mark and then you flip back the top of the front piece at the 2 3/4″ mark.  When you add the focal point to the front of the card just be sure to only adhere it the 2 3/4″ section or you won’t be able to open your card.  Ha!  You also want to be sure to stamp your sentiment in the area that will be hidden by your front focal point when the card is closed.  Those are the only little tricks that you need to know to make a Z-fold card.

I’d love to see examples of Z-fold cards that you create.  Send me a photo!  I’d love to see what you come up with!  Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
