Another Attempt at a Z Fold card!

This Z Fold pop up card is intriguing me!   Every time I make one, I learn something else about the design.  (Give me six months when everyone else has moved on to something else, and I will have finally mastered it!  LOL!)  Here's a Halloween version that I have been working on for a Challenge in one of my Facebook groups: -

I cut the fence in three sections, one of which was sized at the width of the card (5.5 " for this card) and the other two sized at half the width of the card (2.75").  I flipped one of the smaller sections of fence by using the mirror feature on Design Space so that the whole fence would fit together perfectly when folded.

The images come from Monster Bash, Mini Monsters,  Creepy Critters, Artbooking and Holiday Cakes.  The fabulous background paper is Graphic 45.  

Trying to get a clear photo of this card was tricky, tricky, tricky!  Note to self - two spooky trees is one too many, so look at the project from all angles BEFORE gluing!!!!!  Thanks for visiting with me today.   : )  Christine

Z Fold Pop Up Card

Don't you just LOVE this bicycle cut from the new CTMH cart, Flower Market?   When I saw the bicycle pop up box card here in Lori Whitlock's shop, I was inspired to make my own pop up card and here it is:-

It was not as simple as I thought it would be to line up all the folds and decorative elements, but I was pleased with the final result and my sister's reaction when she saw her card was, "This is just how I want my life to be!"                                                                                                                            

The floral trellis comes from the Bloom cart and the various pots and flowering bushes come from the Pop Up Neighborhood, Flower Market, and Bloom carts.

As you can see, I did not adhere the front of the wheel to the grassy Z fold strip so that it would extend beyond the fold when closed.  Although quite bulky, it does stay closed and lies flat enough to go nicely in an envelope.  Yeah!

The butterflies came in a sequin mix packet and I inked their bodies to add a little detail.  One last top view:-

This is a fun fold with lots of dimension and I plan on making more of them.   Thanks for visiting with me today.      : )  Christine
