Beach House Pop Up Z Fold Card
Today I am happy to bring you a card project I recently completed for AddINKtive Designs, by the wonderfully talented, Bronwyn Eastley. Following one of Bronwyn’s tutorials, I have had a fun time making this Beach House Pop Up Z Fold Card. The tutorial instructions are clear and concise, which really was a help in zipping through this project. I chose to use the tutorial for creating a Farmer’s Market Pop Up Z Fold card and flip it to look like a Beach House.
Summer at the Jersey Shore
I currently live in New Jersey and visiting or vacationing in a home “Down the Shore” is the norm. All of the homes at the Shore have many of the same characteristics. A few of them being the awnings that hang over the side of the house in multicolored stripes and the beautifully colored front doors as well. All of the houses are also landscaped with vibrant green Hosta plants with their pretty white flowers and on the sides of the houses are vines of Mandevillas with gorgeous pink blooms. The Jersey Shore is kind of a lifestyle in these parts and I’ve captured it in this card.

Beach House Pop Up Z Fold Card
One of my favorite things about creating with an AddINKtive Designs tutorial is the flexibility I have in customizing the project. Changing the colors to suit the personalized card is part of the fun of creating. I’ve added some personal touches, such as changing the theme of the card, to make it just from me.
This is an interactive card. The left side pulls up and away from the rest of the card to reveal a beach house! And the card lays nice and flat for mailing but also stands up in the form of the letter Z. It’s too cool!
Here are a few unique touches
For the front door, I used At Home With You Bundle. The dies allow the door to open on a hinge… perfect! It also provides a porch light to attach next to the front door and a wooden sign to hang from the wall of the house.
Colorful Seasons Bundle provided the means in making the scalloped awning, lawn chair, Mandevilla vine and flowers and the white blooms on the Hosta plants in the wood crate planter box. All of the homes at the Jersey Shore are set up with striped window awnings and landscaped with Mandevilla and Hostas.
Wood Textures DSP and Colorful Seasons DSP really helped to get the beach, or shore as they call it here in Jersey, to come to life on paper. The house has a weather, wind stripped look from the gray colored paper and the planter box and chair are more of a white washed and weathered wood paper. Colorful Seasons DSP gave me the gradient look to the flowers and leaves that I find in nature. For the interior of the house, a gradient yellow look of the warm home glow worked out perfect!
