A6 Double Z Joy Fold Card with Tutorial & Happy Anniversary Moya

Happy 2 year Stampin' Up! Anniversary Moya...

Sharing a card I made especially for the lovely Moya in my team who is celebrating her 2 year Anniversary as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator today... it is truly a pleasure to know you Moya... and I hope that this card arrived yesterday as planned so I don't spoil the surprise!
So this is a re-sized and re-worked version of the fully opening Large Square Double Z Joy Fold Card for which this tutorial is proving very popular on here at the moment...

But this one is re-sized to to an A6 card so that it fits in a standard C6 sized envelope and it is also adapted to neatly fit one die-cut Large Number on it...
The card introduces the new Berry Burst In Color and the gorgeous co-ordinating  Fresh Florals In Color 12x12 paper stack....  Don't forget to check out my In Color Bundles details here if these colours are of interest...
Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack
And a lovely excuse to get my new Crafting Forever stamp set out... and make a stamp and scissors with bright pink handles for Moya! Love them....

And for my American readers... don't fret... another version follows in due course... but converting this one would not make any sense - as you wouldn't have an envelope to fit it in!  EDITED TO ADD - Click here for the US A2 version from US Letter cardstock...
Craft Spa Recipe 
A4 Thick Whisper White 21 x 14.8cm
A4 Berry Burst 16 x 9.8cm
A4 Whisper White Front 5 x 9.3cm; Back 4.7 x 9.3cm
Paper Left Front 4.7 x 14.3cm
Paper Right Back 10 x 14.3cm
Paper Centre 4.7 x 9.3cm

1. Score Thick Whisper White LANDSCAPE panel at 5.25 & 10.5cm
2. Z Bone Fold. Valley for halfway/centre... Peak for quarter-way
3. Score Berry Burst LANDSCAPE panel at 5.25 & 10.5 cm
4. Z Bone Fold. Peak halfway-ish (front) fold... Valley for Quarter-ish (back) fold
5. Adhere papers

Now to sticking the two Z Fold parts. Think about what needs to go where!!! Otherwise you will just stick your whole card together and it won't open after all!! Suggest a dry run with no glue the first time... then it should all become obvious... So...

6. Adhere back section of smaller Z Fold onto back face of main card - 
make sure the left/inside valley fold of the smaller Z section panel is behind your 
front left peak fold of the main card  ie slip the smaller Z in behind the larger left fold as you stick it down/line it all off on the front... 

7. Adhere front part of smaller Z Fold onto main card front (think about where NOT to put your glue!?)

8. Decorate as desired


  1. lovely card and fabulous fold yet again!

    1. Thank you Uma... another simple fancy fold that is definitely worth a go....
