Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Z-Fold Birthday Card

Good Wednesday morning everyone.  Well, we made it half way through the week.  Hope yours is going well.  I’ve made a fun fold card today for you using the lovely Rooted In Nature stamp set.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock.  To make the Z-Fold I scored an   8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ card base at 4 1/4″ and again at 2 1/8″.  this is how it will look when folded.

On the 2 smaller panels I adhered a piece of Natures Poem Designer Series Paper using Snail.

On a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tree trunk image in Soft Suede Ink stamping it off twice.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature on top of the tree trunk. Using my Layering Squares Framelits Dies I cut the image out with the largest square framelit using my Big Shot.  Then I cut a piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock using the largest Scallop Square Framelit Die, again with my Big Shot.  I adhered the Very Vanilla square to the scallop square using Snail.  I attached the square in the middle of the folded panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the one half.

On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set using my Soft Suede and Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Markers.  I then cut the tree out using the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies with my Big Shot.  I attached the tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the trunk and Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the top leaves.

On the inside I lined the card base with another piece of the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the tree trunk again on a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off four times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on top of the tree trunk.  I then sponged the edges using my Sponge Daubers, in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I adhered the small panel to the inside of the card, making sure it was under the card front square so that you can not see it when the card is closed, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish off my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope flap using the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope that you will give this Z-Fold card a try.  Happy Stamping!
