Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Z-Fold Birthday Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July.  Some of you may be lucky enough to have today off making this a 4 day weekend for you.

I have a masculine Z-Fold card for you today using one of my absolute favorite suites, Come Sail Away.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.  Their challenge is ‘Any Occasion’.

I also played along with Seize The Birthday Challenge#169.  Their challenge is ‘Sunshine’.

My card also joined in with Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #226.  Their theme is ‘Birthdays’.

I started by scoring and folding my Night of Navy card base at 4 1/4″ and 2 1/8″.  I folded my card base in half and then I folded the front back.

I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the 2 1/8″ piece of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine around the front folded piece and tied a square knot (it seemed appropriate).

I adhered a laser cut panel from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack to a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the 2 1/8″ side using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the banner die from the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I edged the banner using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered it to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away DSP to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the larger sailboat image from the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the sailboat.  I stamped the birds from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a little Sail Away Trinket to the bottom corner using a Glue Dot so that you could see in when the card is opened or closed.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lighthouse and sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away 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.  Z-Fold cards are one of the easiest Fun Fold card and you can do so many different things with it.  Stampin’ Up has made it very easy to order entire suites now.  I used everything that comes in the Come Sail Away Suite except for the 3D Embossing Folder.  One number now can order everything in the suite.  Happy Stamping!!
