Zig Zag Panel Card Idea - try a new fold on your next card! Includes video tutorial from LovenStamps

Want to try another Fun Fold card idea?  The Zig Zag card is a great one to add to your collection of ideas!

Yup, it’s another card idea with the new Work of Art stamp set (134114) plus a few tips and tricks, including how to use the Stamping Off Technique to get up to four shades of ink from a single ink pad! (see more Work of Art card ideas)


Want to make this card?  You can!  Two choices — one, order the supplies you need via my online store, or two, sign up for my June Stamps in the Mail Club kit and get everything you need (pre-cut, embellishments, stamps & ink included).

Cutting Instructions for the Zig Zag Card

  1. Cut Designer Series Paper to 5-1/2″ x 12″
  2. Mark at 1-1/2″ on one end and 4″ at the other end
  3. Use a Paper Trimmer to connect the two marks, creating two long triangle card bases
  4. Fold the long triangle into thirds, keeping the bottom edges aligned

Got it?  If you watch the video tutorial, you can see the process in action — plus tips for getting each panel to line up as you assemble the layers of your zig zag card.

  1. Hi,

    I have been playing around with three-fold cards like this this week and was surprised and delighted to see your take on them. I really like the idea of putting the false back on the last fold but the way this one comes together right from the front is gorgeous. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Kind regards

    • You’re so very welcome, Julie! Thanks for your kind words! Yes, it’s sometimes fun to twist an old idea around and make it into something new 🙂 I’m all about figuring out new and simple ways to create! Glad this was a helpful idea!

      Happy Stamping!
