Hi .... Rain!

It is time for another of Beate's Weekend sketch challenges, this week we had to create a Z Fold card. If you aren't too sure how to make one of these cards Beate also provided a tutorial which you can find here.

For my card I decided to use the one stamp I came home with from the craft show on Wednesday ... it has been sitting on my desk calling to be used ever since I brought it home! I adapted the size of my Z Fold to suit the image, and of course I had to play with my nestabilities too. I used my score it board to create the border on the 3 sides of the base portion of this card for something different .... I also used this to score my card to get the right folds ... it definitely made it easier then having to find a ruler and make a mark etc .... the score it board has a ruler on it so it makes it easy to just position the card on the required mark and score! The little circle that holds the verse serves two purposes ... it is there for the greeting and also to help keep the card closed.


Recipe:
Stamps: Umbrella & Slicker - Whipper Snapper; Verse - Impression Obsession
Paper: Real Red; Summer Sun - Stampin' Up; White; DP - Basic Grey
Other: Black Ink; Blue Brads; Square & Circle Nestabilities; Hole Punch; Score It Board

I love your card-the stamp, the bright colors--everything. I keep reading about nestabilities. I need to figure out what they are.

Soooo cute!!! As I look at this cute card - with the little tyke all dressed in yellow, all I can think of is "Make Way For Ducklings" :)
