Z-Fold Card with a Surprise

By Christine Meyer

I am up at Momenta today, here’s the tutorial I shared.  Today is the first day of school for my older kids so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share one of my back to school cards with you!  This one has some hidden fun to it!
Here’s the front view.  I used some one of the Hall Pass Clear Layered Stickers for my focal point and added a little pennant to show off that he is going into 3rd Grade.
And here’s the card as it unfolds.  Believe it or not it started as a simple piece of cardstock.
All you need is a base and then patterned papers cut to the sizes you wish to layer.  Your base should be  11″ length X 4.25″ height which is folded in half. Then you take the top cover and fold that in half again.  This will leave you with some of the “inside of your card showing.”  I then cut patterned papers down to the size that I wanted for each location.
On the “inside” I added my sentiment.  It was hidden from the front view by my banner embellishment.
The yellow polka dot paper is a longer folded sheet that can open up and leave you a private spot to write them a message.  I like adding this feature because it makes the card a little more private but kids also think it’s a cool hidden surprise!
Check out all that dimension!  I know he will be thrilled with the card and all the hidden fun in it!
