Stamping With Friends Blog Hop - Double Z Fold Card

Today I'm hopping with the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop.  Our theme for this hop is the Z Fold Cards - Any Variation!  I created this fun Double Z Fold using the Trusty Tools Bundle and coordinating Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.

I love to make fancy folds and the Trusty Tools Bundle and paper made it so easy!  Isn't this a fun card!

Here's what it looks like when opened.  I cut the tools from the Designer Series Paper - makes it so easy!  You can grab this paper for Free during Sale-a-Bration with a $60 order!  I'm excited that this is the Bundle used for the Your Creativity Awaits Kit for February - get the details on subscribing for this kit below.
