Today's card is a fun fold - and a super-easy one! I love this z-fold design, because all it takes is a scoring tool and just two simple folds to get quite the spectacular result. A supply list is included for you at the end of this post.

To make the card, I started by using the Perennial Postage Dies. Working with Basic White Cardstock, I cut a postage stamp rectangle the size of my sentiment in the great new Bright Skies Stamp Set. I love the bold yet pretty font!

I then stamped my sentiment in Pecan Pie Ink. But beware, the name and colour always makes me want to eat pie! (Maybe it has this effect on you, too?)

Here's the new Bright Skies Stamp Set, in case you haven't seen it yet:

Next, I cut chevrons in both ends of a 3/4" x 4" scrap of Garden Green Cardstock. I attached my sentiment to it.

I embellished with the beautiful Opaque Faceted Gems. I was very excited to see them as Sale-A-Bration option this year. They're FREE with $60 spend!

To explain how to construct the z-fold, it's helpful to see the entire card:

I first scored a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Garden Green Cardstock card base on the 8 1/2" side, at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4". I folded on the 4 1/4" line as usual, to make a regular card base. Then I folded at the 2 1/8" score line, but in the opposite direction.

So to put it simply, fold on one score line in one direction, and on the other score line in the opposite direction, as seen in the photo.

I then cut a 6" x 6" piece of the Flight & Airy DSP, also available FREE with $60 spend during Sale-A-Bration. I cut 3/4" off the bottom of the square. From there, I cut the right-most piece to be 2 1/4" x 5 1/4" and the remaining piece in half, to create two pieces of 1 7/8" x 5 1/4". I also cut a 1 1/2" x 5 1/4" piece of Basic White Cardstock.

Here's the fabulous Flight & Airy DSP:

I adhered the two smaller DSP pieces to the two smallest panels (on the left, above). I assembled the remaining DSP with the Basic White Cardstock piece to its left. Flipping them over, I attached them together with household tape. Then I adhered them to the remaining card base panel.

My final step was adhering the sentiment piece to the card base.
