Z-Fold Butterfly

I've never done a lot of fancy fold cards.  But lately, I've been doing some Z-fold cards.  


And the inside.  Sorry for the blurry photo.  Hope you can get the idea though.


In case you haven't done these... I cut the cardstock at 4 1/2" and scored at 5 1/2".  Then I scored the front piece at 2 3/4" and folded it back.

I saw where someone had done a butterfly like this last week.  I'm sorry that I can't remember who did it.  Let me know so I can link back to your blog.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Petite Pairs, Papillon Potpourri
Ink:  Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green
Paper:  Whisper White, Gumball Green, Print Poetry DSP Pad
Other:  Elegant Butterfly Punch, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Square Lattice EF, Raspberry Ripple Ribbon, Basic Pearls

I'm so glad you could take the time to stop by.

Enjoy!

I scurried here from the Playground, having never made a Z-fold card - more inspiration from you Bonnie. Beautiful result - right, I'm running back to the Playground now to look at the rest :) Getting my exercise this morning :))

Hugs, Di xx
