Golfing Double Z-Fold

Happy Monday ~ I hope you all had a craft-astic weekend!  Guest Designer Kris here with a Double Z-Fold Box Card FORE you!  I love a good pun!  Today I have used 7 dies from the new AUGUST RELEASE!  This release is so great for those masculine cards - especially if they like golf or baseball!  And for a limited time you can get the whole release bundle at 50% OFF!!  Individual dies from this release are 30% off! 

The Z-Fold card is so easy to make, and this one is a step up because I added "shelves" in the li'l corner box to adhere even more images/die-cutz to!  


1.  I cut a piece of light blue cardstock at 4-1/4" x 11" - then scored at 2-3/4" (mountain fold) and 5-1/2" (valley fold)

2.  I cut a green strip (for the front Z) at 2-1/4" x 11" and scored at 2-3/4"(valley fold) and 5-1/2"(mountain fold)  See photo below.

3.  I used the die pictured below from the Grass Slimline set to cut the top of the green Z strip.  The strip will be a bit longer than the die, so I cut to one of the score lines, then moved the die down to cut the rest.

4.  Next, I cut a piece of patterned green paper to 3-1/4" x 11" and scored at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".  

5.  I used the die pictured below from the Hills Slimline set to cut all the way across the top of that strip, by doing the same technique.... cutting to one of the score lines, then moving the die down and cutting the remainder.  (see photos below)

6.  I attached the patterned paper to the blue card base, aligning edges at sides and bottom.  

7.  Next, I added tape to the sections pictured below on back of the green grassy strip.  You don't want tape to extend past that first score line on your card base, so if it helps, you can place a pencil mark on the backside of your grassy layer at 2-3/4" so you know where to stop taping.  ☺

8.  Adhere to card as pictured below.

9.  Cut 2 or 3 shelves to insert in that "box" that the short Z creates.  I cut (3) at 1-1/4" x 3-3/4" and scored at 1/2" in from each end.

10.  Miter the top of the side flaps.  Then cut the tops using the straightest section of the grass die.

11.  I added glue to the side flaps and (I tried to) evenly space them from back to front of the "box"

12.  If you want, you can cut a piece of cardstock to 4" x 5-1/4" for the back side of card for writing a message.

13.  All that's left is die-cutting my pieces. gluing them together and adhering to my card!  
  • For all the front Z panel die-cuts, I added foam dots to the backs to adhere them
  • For the elements on the shelves inside the "box" I glued them to strips of heavy acetate so I could place them up a li'l higher and provide more stability to them.  
  • For the words and silhouette golfer, I glued them directly onto the card base. 


I hope you enjoyed my card today!  
Have a craft-astic week :)
