Today's card uses the always popular -- Z Fold Fun Fold.  In my opinion, this is one of the best Fun Folds to show off beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I'm using the soon-to-be-gone-forever Abstract Beauty DSP.  This gorgeous paper with its gold accents is on the Last Chance List.  

I thought this pretty floral pattern with Polished Pink flowers on a Night of Navy background coordinated well with the Lovely and Lasting floral stamp.  Using the colors from the designer series paper I stamped my flowers in Polished Pink with Mango Melody centers.  The complete flower was stamped with Granny Apple Green ink first on the front Basic White panel, and then the flowers were stamped twice more--once with Polished Pink and once with Mango Melody.  The flowers were fussy cut and adhered to the Granny Apple Green with dimensionals.

The label border was stamped with Polished Pink and the sentiment with Night of Navy and then punched out with the Lasting Label Punch.  Don't you just love a good punch?  They are so quick, easy, and economical to use!  No die cutting machine is required, so they are perfect for beginners.

The large panel of the Z-Fold main card base and the center panel of the smaller Z-fold are covered with another pattern from Abstract Beauty DSP.  I love how Stampin' Up! makes their products so easy to mix and match.  Color coordination is not one of my strengths but Stampin' Up! makes it simple.

For the "inside" panel, I used another of the small stamps from the Lovely and Lasting Stamp Set.  This set has several of these little decorative stamps, so there are many options to add a "little something" to give a plain white piece of Basic White cardstock a finishing touch.

If you have never tried to make a Z-Fold card because it looks a little intimidating, believe me when I say it is MUCH easier than it looks.  Why don't you download my FREE TUTORIAL and give it a try?  Use up some of that beautiful Designer Series Paper you are hoarding!  Yes, I know you are.  We all do it!
