Blossoming Basket Double Z Fold Box Card

Hello and thanks for stopping by today! The second release of Sale-a-bration is here and it brings some of the most waited for items. Now offered for choice of a free item with purchase is the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which includes the Blossoming Basket stamp set and the Basket Weave Dynamic textured impressions embossing folder. This is a brilliant combo! The embossing on this folder is 3D and really nice for springtime crafting. I want to explore what possibilities I can come up with this set so I created a Blossoming Basket Double Z Fold box card from one of Bronwyn’s amazing tutorials at AddINKtive Designs.

Fancy fold cards are not always a giant undertaking but they can be intimidating. Here is how I approach each project; the finished card will fit into a standard envelope, so…… it can’t be too big a project for me to tackle. Putting it into perspective is a big help. Plus, Bronwyn’s tutorials are really easy to follow, step by step and loads of photos.

Tips for this project

This box card design is perfect when I want to send a card that will be more than a card. Extremely sturdy and standing on it’s own, it really makes a statement.

The Blossoming Basket is stamped in Sahara Sand ink onto Sahara Sand card stock, then colored with Watercolor Pencils. I even added the exclusive watercolor pencil colors that came in the Lots of Happy Kit. Love that Lemon Lime Twist pencil, as it colors out nice and smooth then blends out with a Blender Pen.

The background paper is the brand new Springtime Foil DSP that is also a Sale-a-bration item that was just released. It’s colored in with Stampin Blends and check out how well this paper receives the color! Amazing!

The sentiment is hung suspended from the Z Fold, so it can be seen from the front facing part of the card.

  1. This is beautiful Jenny. I just love all you have done with this. It is Mother’s Day in the UK in just 3 weeks time and this would be perfect for my 94 year young mum. Now I will fussy cut, it takes me sometime but I don’t mind that at all. The thing is getting it right around things like the handle on the basket and the tiny rounded leaves. Yours looks so good. I was wondering if you had any tips you could share or a how to video for better fussy cutting. Thank you so much for your inspiration Jenny. Take good care.

  2. This is beautiful. I’d like to create something similar. Not sure what the size is for the card base and the score lines. How did you run it through the big shot? All layers at the same time?

I love to read your comments! Please leave one here.
