The other A6 Double Z Joy Fold Card with Tutorial

Just realised I hadn't shared the details (or indeed it seems... even a card!) of the fully opening A6 Double Z Joy Fold Card in landscape orientation which we made in classes back in early May....

This is an update to the "not-fully-opening A6 version of the card" for which the tutorial was shared here back in April... which has proven very popular... but it was so worthy of this tweak!!
So I have re-made one with the new Floral Statements stamps and the Powder Pink Fresh Florals papers in the 2017-19 In Colors... and seeing as it is Fancy Fold Friday (again!)... here it is with the tutorial so you have something new for the weekend!!!

And for my US readers... click here for the A2 card fold tutorial from US letter cardstock...

Oh and click here for the A6 portrait orientation one with tutorial from A4 that I posted earlier this week.... or click here for the A2 portrait one from US Letter cardstock...
Craft Spa Recipe
A4 Card Thick Whisper White 10.5cm x A4L (ie 29.8cm)
A4 Card Basic Black 26.1 x 7cm H
A4 Whisper White 10.8 x 6.5cm H; 6.9 x 6.5cm H
Papers - Front 6.9 x 10cm H; Back 14.3 x 10cm H; Inside 6.9 x 6.5cm H
Craft Spa Directions
1. Score Thick Whisper White LANDSCAPE panel at 14.8 & 7.4cm
2. Z Bone Fold. Valley for halfway/centre... Peak for quarter-way
3. Score Basic Black LANDSCAPE panel at 
14.8 & 7.4cm
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/central peak fold of the main card/larger Z section  ie slip the smaller Z in behind the larger Z panel central 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
