Snow Bird z fold

 Welcome to my first blog post of 2016.

Today I have some exciting news, I have joined the design team on Crazy 4 Challenges.
We are a group of 12 gals that are crazy for stamping and challenges. When we aren't with our families you can find us all stamping up a storm. Each Saturday we will be posting a new challenge along with the samples from our design team. We hope you are able to play along too!

Our hostess for January is Frances Byrne.

Apparently yesterday was Z Day. Let's celebrate by including something starting with the letter Z on our cards.  You could make a Z Fold Card, use a zip or zip image, zinnia, zebra, zoo etc. Let's show the letter Z how much we love it!

For my card I chose to make a z fold card.
Using a 12" x 5" base card, scored a 3" and 6" to make a mountain and a valley fold. I then cut the designer paper to fit each panel. The main image is the snow bird from Stampendous. I have used the leaf stand up helper from Elizabeth Craft Designs to add a tab on the right side of the card so the card can be held closed and as an embellishment on the other side.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
