True Friend


I finally am having a little breathing space after back-to-back orders... Phew... Made a couple of double z-fold cards during the day yest using one piece of 12x12 card stock.. I am stocking up on cards because I can see an immediate need for them in the not-so-distant future.. :D

The double z-fold card looks really cute in real life... You could even call it a gate-fold card with a twist because the basic design structure and mechanism is that of a gate-fold card... I have a lot of love for special folds for simply I feel.. When you have the tools.. try something totally over the top rather than just folding a card into half... Mind you, even that simple folded card might give you nightmares at times but to cut a long story short, I have an attachment to special folds and hope to try as many as possible...

So here are the pics of my card.. the colors are inspired by the current Itsy Bitsy Logo color challenge.

the double z-fold card comes together really really quickly... No wonder I dished out two.. I'll share the second one as soon as I complete it...

Awesome card and I have spoken always and a lot about your mad coloring skills ...but they are truly flawless.Only one thing i reread the post but couldn't understand the significance of the title.You rock at folded cards and this one is no exception.
