Happy Tuesday!! You all know that means I have a fabulous technique for you! With Easter around the corner, let’s bring on ALL THE CANDY!!! Easter is my favorite holiday and Easter candy is AMAZING! Jelly Beans, Peeps, and Reese’s Eggs are just a few of my favorites. What is your favorite! Okay back to this fabulous technique of a Double Z Fold Candy Card!!!
Isn’t it beautiful???? I am loving the fun colors. Hello, Lisa Frank! Am I right? Eeee It just makes me so happy. This card uses all the goodies in the How Sweet It Is Suite!
First, I started with a Coastal Cabana card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11. That is right, this is a regular card size! Simply fold in half like you normally would for a card and then fold that front piece back (in half) to create your first Z. You can also score it if you wish at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″. I added a piece of the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper the the inside of the card (stripes ~ 4″ x 5-1/4″) and another piece to the left side front flap (polka dots ~ 4″ x 2-1/2″).
Now for that second Z on our card, I used Gorgeous Grape (3″ x 9″) and scored it at 3″ and 6″. This creates three 3″ squares. Fold it to create a Z and add adhesive to the back square making sure the next square is on the left side. Place it down on the striped paper. Next, place the top Z on the polka dotted paper with the card all folded and laying flat. Place your fingers at the edge of the purple 3″ square as a guide to know how much adhesive you will need for that flap (video explains better). Lift the 3″ purple square and add adhesive to the polka dots. It is typically 2 lines of Snail Adhesive. Once your adhesive is down, place the Z over it by pressing flat. Don’t hold the card up to connect it or it might not close flat.
Now it is time to decorate!!! Using the Jar of Sweets Framelits, I die cut out the candy jars from the How Sweet It Is Stamp Set. I love that these coordinate and line up perfectly. I also die cut the candy pieces with the framelits. Using the Sweetest Thing Stamp Set, I stamped the greetings to coordinate. Don’t forget you can bundle and save 10% when you get the stamps and framelits together! The Whisper White layers measure 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″! Just have fun with all the possibilities!!!
