Cheeky Squirrel: Simple Z Fold Card Design

This little squirrel is my friend. He’s too cute to be anything else. Of course if he’s related to the squirrel who knocks on my back patio door to aggravate our poor dog, then the emphasis is on ‘cheeky’ for sure.

When I saw him appear in the Banner Year stamp set, I knew he had to be in my first card. And even though this is the 4th video and tutorial that I’m sharing for October LovenStamps Monthly Card Tutorials, it’s the first in my heart.

A fun fold? Yes please! The Z Fold card is perfect for two reasons: 1, it’s a fun change from the regular normal fold and 2, when the card is open, you can STILL see the fabulous design on the front! Who wouldn’t want more squirrel time?

I’m in love with both the plaid paper (so pretty – AND it’s one of the cards that will be included in your LovenStamps Card Kits “To Go” when you order $50 or more from my online store during September) and the way the elements come together. The gold is a gorgeous complement to the orange and purple.

So if you like the idea of discounted stamping supplies, then the BEST value is to purchase the Demonstrator Starter Kit. Never fear – there are ALL kinds of demonstrators, from those who purchase for themselves at a discount all the way to demonstrators like me who craft and work full time. So anywhere in between – you are welcome! Please hop over and learn more about what it means to be a demonstrator.
