Stampin’ Up Vertical Greetings Z-Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your week?  Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend?

For today’s card I made a Z-Fold card.  I just love doing this type of card.  I used the Stampin’ Up Vertical Greetings Stamp Set.  I also used some of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that is a FREE item with Sale-A-Bration.   Just a little reminder, Sale-A-Bration will be ending on March 31, 2019.  If you haven’t gotten the free items that you would like, now’s the time to get that order placed.  Don’t miss out on getting all the free goodies you want.  Here is today’s card.

I started with a Thick Very Vanilla card base scored at 4 1/4″ and 2 1/8″.  I stamped one of the potted plant images from the Vertical Greetings stamp set on the front of the card base.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Early Espresso, Grapefruit Grove and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Markers.  This is a great way to stamp an image using multiple colors on the same stamp.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set next to the image in Early Espresso Ink.

On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the squirrel and bird images from the Stampin’ Up Sitting Pretty Stamp Set in Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Balmy Blue Inks.  Using my Big Shot I cut the squirrel, bird and park bench out with my Pretty Park Framelits Dies.  I cut the park bench out using Wood Textures Designer Series Paper so that it had the wooden look.

I adhered the squirrel and bird to the park bench using Glue Dots and adhered the park bench to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Butterfly Duet Punch I punched out some of the butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  I adhered a couple to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the left of the inside so that it wouldn’t show when the card was closed.  I adhered some more butterflies to the card base using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the potted plant image from the Vertical Greetings stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a piece of Botanical Butterfly DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping and have a great weekend!!
