Simple Fancy Card Layout – Extended Z Fold: Watercolor Sunflowers for Fall

I think if I was caught on a deserted island and could only have one stamp set, Celebrate Sunflowers is the one that I’d choose. There are SO many possibilities! Watercolor, collage stamping, stamping with bleach…and that doesn’t even count the possibilities with the coordinating Sunflower Dies.

(Although if I were caught on a deserted island, I’m pretty sure I’d be gathering coconuts and building some Gilligan-style shelter out of palm fronds rather than making cards.)

This Extended Z Fold Card is a fun way to really feature the main sunflower.

With the Extended Z Fold, the card base still starts with a 4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock (cut to 4″ instead of 4 1/4″ to make the most efficient use of the Gilded Autumn DSP).

Score the Crumb Cake card base at 1 1/4″ and 5 1/2″. You’ll be making a tab that creates the front of the card along with a 4″ x 4″ piece of Gilded Autumn DSP.

This would be a terrific card for a group of people to sign – lots of room for signatures. And I also love the fold because the ‘front’ of the card is still visible when the card is open. 

Plus yikes – that sunflower!! Gorgeous color, isn’t it? And Gilded Autumn definitely brings out the best.
