3 Panel Scenery Z Fold Card

In today’s post, I’ll be sharing a fun fold card called a 3 Panel Scenery Z Fold Card. It’s made with the gorgeous Feels Like Frost Designer Paper.

This card is super quick and easy to make even though it may look like it’s complicated!

This card design was CASED from Rachel Tessman and she is the originator of the name, 3 panel scenery z fold card. When you look at this card from the top the “z fold” part of the name makes sense.

The card base is scored at 1-1/2″ and 4-1/4″. Fold the 1-1/2″ flap back to create the “z” and then attach a panel to that flap. This panel also serves as a backing to the designer paper piece.

For this card you’ll use a single 6″ x 6″ piece of designer paper that is cut and, attached, so it looks continuous when the card is open, as you see here.

The Feels Like Frost designer paper is simply gorgeous. Unfortunately, this paper is sold out as it’s been incredibly popular! The good news is that Stampin’ Up! will be bringing it back in next year’s Holiday catalog that will go live in September 2020.

The card I’m sharing today was one of my three November/December 2019 Club and Free Card Kit projects. Kits for this card were prepared using a variety of the designer paper patterns in this pack in three different color schemes. Here are the three color schemes with a few of the designer paper patterns:
