Double Z card

This is one of the fun cards we will be doing on June 4th.  The card is called a Double Z card and I found a youtube video for it here.
She did a great job with the directions so I won't post any.  Her name is Jan B.

It is a standard size card 4 1/4 x 5 1/2".  The base of the card is cut at 4" but that little scallop circle makes up the extra 1/4", so don't let the directions fool you.  You don't make it 4 1/4 high.

My card is made with Pixie, White and Pear cardstock.  The pattern paper is from our new Calypso papers.
Here is the inside of my card.

I used CTMH Cricut Cartridges for this project, Art Philosophy, Artiste and  Artistry.
The only stamp I used was from the Tickled Pink stamp, which has a set of Thin Cuts to go with it.

Have a Explore machine?  Here is the file...

Hawaiian Hibiscus

This card was made using a B&T paper from Magical, one of CTMH new paper packets.
As you can see this is a very versatile paper packet.  I will be posting a cute project made from it soon so check back.  It's a convention gift so I can post yet!

The focus stamp is from the B1527 Hawaiian Hibiscus stamp set.

Also used were D1618 Build A Cake 

C1632 Say it All a discontinued stamp set but any small sayings would work
C1612 Shower Flower

How to: if you have an Explore. Place the side you want to appear on the outside down on the mat for cutting.

Cut the following mats.
This will adhere in the hole you created on the front.

Accordion fold the sections.  Adhere the pattern paper to the sections.  Place adhesive on the far right piece on the back and adhere to the inside of the right side of the folded paper.
The far right one you will put adhesive on and adhere to the inside of the card lining it up about 1/8th" from the right side of the card centered. It has the saying on it in this photo.

With that adhered inside the card, close it . 
Place adhesive on the part shown in photo below.

This is where the focus stamps go. By putting the leaves outside of the hole, it will make the card easier to open.
