Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop Bird Ballad

Hello Stampers!  I am excited to share the Ink.Stamp.Share blog hop with you today!  Our theme for July is Fancy Folds, so we each have wonderful projects that show something unique from the typical card fold.

I chose to make a Z Fold card using the Bird Ballad suite.  The Bird Balled Designer Series Paper is so fun and very versatile.  This stripe print is cheery and bright for summer.

This is the interior panel of my card.

I liked this Z fold so much that I made two cards!  I really wanted to use the bird too and the flower print DSP.

I stamped my images in Crumb Cake and then colored with my Stampin' Blends markers.  The basketweave embossing folder seemed like a good theme choice for flowers and birds.

This view reveals why this fancy fold is called the Z fold card!

I hope you have enjoyed my fancy fold cards, you can see my supply list at the end of my post.

Now join me to hop over Cindy's blog and ohh and ahh over her fancy fold design, click on the NEXT button below.
