Rose & Spirea on Double Z Fold
Today I have a Double Z Fold card (this card is such a fun card to create) I created and used Spellbinders Susan's Garden Floribunda Rose (new release through the Garden Gate S5-507) Spirea ( S4-1084 Spring Flora) and Eucalyptus (S4-1079 Autumn Flora Foliage & Ladybug) to embellish it.
Double Z Fold base
White cardstock 6" X 12" scored at 3" & 6" Fold on score lines ( 3" mountain fold 6" valley fold)
White cardstock cut 4-1/2" X 9" scored at 3" & 6" (same mountain fold & valley fold)
1st Layer Measurements
1 pc 5-3/4" square
2 pc 2-3/4" X 5-3/4"
3 pc 2-3/4" X 4-1/4"
2nd Layer Measurements
Patterned Paper (Park Lane - Southern Charm)
1 pc 5-1/2" square
2 pc 2-1/2" X 5-1/2"
3 pc 2-1/2" X 4"
3rd Layer Measurements
White cardstock Optional - sentiment and a place to write personal message
2 pc 2-1/4" X 3-3/4"
Clear Double Sided Adhesive was used to attach all layers. If doing Sentiment and personal note pieces then add that before adhering those pieces.
Susan has a tutorial on her Garden Club Facebook page which you can find here.
Susan's Garden Specialty Paper was used for all flowers and foliage colored with Copic Markers and shaped using Susan's Garden Deluxe Tool Kit. Susan has YouTube Videos for creating all of these. She also has done a Facebook "Live" on the Floribunda Rose with some extra tips from Selma Stevenson you can find that here.
For the rose and buds I colored with Copic markers R22 & R24 Leaves I forgot to write down colors I used. For the Eucalyptus I use Copic BG96 and then used white PanPastels lightly over it.
Before adhering everything down I tried it several different ways taking pictures of all it really helps. I look back through the pictures and decide which layout of flowers and foliage is most pleasing to my eye then using Kids Choice Glue I attach everything.
Thanks for stopping by today I sure hope I have given you some inspiration to create your own card.
Until Next Time - Happy Crafting!
