Quick and Easy Holiday Cards with Toni Storie

Hello Crafty Friends!  We are in December and it's time to whip up some quick holiday cards.  There's nothing like your Scor-Pal to get the job done with some pizazz.  Today, I am featuring a Z Fold card.  This card has a different fold than your regular card to make it that much more memorable!
For this card, you will need:
  • 4 1/4" x 11" piece of card stock
  • 2 5/8" x 4 1/8" piece of designer paper
  • 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of designer paper. 
  • Matching card stock scraps for die cutting
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Assorted dies (snowflakes, rounded scallop frame and rounded rectangle)
  • Embellishments
Place the 4 1/4" by 11" piece of card stock into your Scor-Pal with the 11" side against the top fence.  Score at 5 1/2". 
Flip your card stock over and with the 11" side still against the top fence of the Scor-Pal, score at 2 3/4".
Crease all of your folds to create the "Z" shaped card base.
At this step, you could go crazy with embellishments or you can keep it simple.  I die cut and sponged five small snowflakes.  Then I die cut a rounded scallop frame and two rounded rectangles.  I quickly stamped the two rounded rectangles with a snowflake background and sentiments.  I adhered the patterned paper to my card base with some Scor-Tape.  Next, I matted the rounded rectangle on the rounded scallop frame and adhered only the left side of the rectangle to the top of my "Z".  Then, I added rhinestones to each snowflake and popped them up with some dimensional adhesive.  Finally, I adhered the second rounded rectangle to the bottom of my "Z" so that it hides neatly behind the top rounded scallop frame.
This completes my quick and easy holiday card for today!  Here's one more photo of it closed and in my flower frog. 
Here's to a wonderfully creative day.  Thank you for stopping by!
