Blooms & Bliss Small Square Pop Out Z Fold Card Tutorial

Here is the rest of the batch of my January Blooms & Bliss Thank You cards... simple little Small Square Pop Out Z Fold cards which are really simple to make but that have really WOWed those that have seen or made them... 

You may notice that this Island Indigo and Mint Macaron batch is smaller than the pinks batch shared yesterday - no guesses as to which colour range has been favourite around here!! I can confirm that there are none of the Indigo/Mint papers left!

Here is the original format... with the same piece of paper used on the back faces - first shared here...
And so the tutorial for you... 

Edited to Add 30 Jan - see here for a useful addition & look inside the card

But before that... did I tell you that the Stitched Shape Framelits are now back in stock... I sincerely hope that they do not go out of stock again.... far too good!!

    1. Thanks Tracy.... though the Blooms & Bliss papers have to take the credit for the colour combination.... the catalogue really does not give this colour scheme the justice it deserves!
