A Unique Z-Fold in Bloom

It is day two for Love of Leaves, and I have a unique Z-fold card to share.  We've all seen many variations of the horizontal Z-Fold card, but today's card is a vertical Z-Fold!

The two 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" Just Jade Panels that make up the front and back of the card are layered with Shaded Spruce and this beautiful paper from the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper pack.

The leaves were stamped with Rich Razzleberry, Just Jade, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry.  Using a sponge dauber, I added a little Just Jade to the inked Crushed Curry stamp before stamping.  All leaves were die cut with coordinating dies from the Stitched Leaves Die set.

But wait!  Here is the fun part!  Look what happens when you open the card!

To provide some detail at the top of the center panel I used this interesting die from the Stitched Leaves Dies. 

I thought I needed a little color on the inside, so I used the masking technique to stamp three leaves on the right side of the panel.

To complete the bottom panel I added strip of the same designer series paper that was used for the front and back panels of the card.

What do you think of this Fun Fold?  I definitely thought it was unique when I saw it at the Creativate Retreat last month so I wanted to give it a try.  

If you would like a tutorial that includes all cutting and scoring dimensions to make this unique Z-Fold, one is available at this link.

Below is a list of all the products used for the card.
