Z- Card Carte Postale Demo Card....

This is the next card I will Demonstrating tomorrow - Z-Card......I love these.

The cardstock is Close to Cocoa, Regal Rose, Whisper white. The stamp set is Carte Postale, sorry I've used this alot lately but love it.....

The base card is half a sheet of cardstock cut length ways and folded in half and then the front is folded back.

I stamped the left hand side piece of Regal Rose with the Canvas Background stamp, then went over it with the leaf stamp. I then added some Chocolate Chip Ribbon. The centre piece is only tape on the left hand side, the right hand side slips under the scallop circle. This holds the front down and also makes it stand so well.

The scallop circle, then the circle punches are held on by 2 3d dimensionals.

The other sample of Z-card is using the Loads of Love stamp set. The cardstock used is Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Old Olive and Whisper white.

The left hand side is stamped with the Dotty Background stamp and I cut 2 slits in the fold to thread the ribbon through and then tied the knots, Real Red Ribbon.

I stamped the card in Old Olive and also on the Old Olive DP spotty paper. I cut it out and paper pieced this to the stamped image. I added some jumbo eyelets, when I layered it onto the Real Red cardstock you can see the Red through the eyelets. I stamped the flowers and coloured them in with SU Markers.

The scallop circle is used again to hold back the card.

Thanks for looking,

Have to say your cards are fabulous!

Have just got my first set of SU stamps as our local crop organiser has started up as a rep.

Love your truck card - might have a go at that one. Great idea using PP too - will try that.

I feel another order coming on!
