I have been seeing these Z-Fold cards all over and wanted to give it a try, but I never did give it a try until I was thinking about what I could do for Kim at Sarah Lizzies and it hit me that the strip that holds the card together might be perfect for Hexagons, and since she loves making hexagon quilts I thought it would be perfect for her.
For the life of me I can not find the tutorial I used and must be I didn't write it down but if you do a search for Z fold card tutorial you will find a whole bunch of them, so me easier than others, I tried one that you cut into the base and I didn't like the way that looked so I started over with this type that you cut the long strip and glue it on instead and I thought that looked a lot better.
Sorry about the pictures, this was a hard card for me to photograph. I used an embossing folder on the front, adding a little chalk to the raise areas in green and cut many hexagons as you can see, the die already has the stitched marks so that was perfect.
Now what card doesn't need a flower :) The space you see blank there is where I wrote my message.
Here it is all open.
I hope you get a chance to stop over to Kim's blog, she makes such Beautiful creations and takes the most Lovely pictures, it is a joy for the eyes to take a stop by.
