Z-Fold card while using more retired products...Directions below.

Here is my version of a Z-Fold card I made while using up more of my stash of retired Designer Series Paper (DSP).
It looks like a regular card, until it is opened.  (The inside greeting is completely hidden behind the front label when card is in the closed position.)
This is a fun and easy card to make!

Directions: To make the Z-fold card base, start with a 8 1/2" wide by 5 1/2" tall piece of cardstock. Score at: 2 1/8" and  4 1/4".  Fold back at the 2 1/8" score line...then fold forward at the 4 1/4" score line.   (Decorate as desired.)
Have fun making your own Z-fold card today!

P.S. Hurry!  Hurry!  You only have SEVEN (7) DAYS LEFT...TO ORDER any of the retiring stamps!  Don't miss-out on getting the "favorite sets" you've had on your "wish list".  (See SIDE BAR for retired list.)   You may order directly ONLINE by clicking on this link:
