Double Z Fold Staircase Card

Love how this one has turned out!

Can't tell you how many years I have been doing a staircase card...but never quite got round to it... well now I have ... definitely a case of when the right products and the right card format collide....
EDITED TO ADD:- Tutorial now posted. Click here.....

Holly Berry Happiness meets Hearth & Home meets Greetings From Santa... with the Seasonal Decorative Masks thrown in...

And the oh so cute Christmas Trinkets Embellishments...
Back to this card another day... as this is definitely just Mark 1... though I think my ladies would have hit me for Mark 2 as it would have taken quite a long time more... and Mark 3... well that could be another story!!!
And here is the window detail...

How did you make the stairs? I think I clicked on all the links and did not see a die for it. I love this card. It is so beautiful. Edwina Brown

This just made it to the top of my list of cards for Christmas. I haven't decided yet what I'm doing but was planning to do a Double Z-Fold for some of them. I was leaning towards the sleigh & reindeer but now I saw this....hmmmmm.
Gorgeous card!

I am in love with making these z-folding cards as so many themes can be used. I've done weddings, to sports to the Seaside Shores...Many ideas to use once we get the staircase directions..[just so I don't do it the long tedious way-lol]

Amanda said...

I am still loving the double z folds too Kathlene.... Hoping to get a remake with photos done by end of this week....

Shelby said...

Amanda said...

Aw thanks Shelby... My plan was to get the tutorial up today... But I now have a major technical hitch to sort out first.. ( not with this card/photos/tutorial I hasten to add) so we will see... PS won't be a video though!!
