Z-Fold Congratulations

With the graduation season fast approaching I've had many people asking for ideas for Congratulations cards. This pretty pink flowery card feels very feminine, and I know school colors tend more towards the bold colors. But just imagine this card in whatever colors match for your graduate. The design is easy to adapt.

This card was made by my friend Sue Adams.  The design is a simple z-fold that highlights a vertical sentiment from Stampin'UP!'s B.R.A.V.O. stamp set. Its fun to get a card that opens in an unexpected way.

These pictures should help you see how to do the z-fold. Its very simple, you make your center fold at the normal  4 1/4" and then fold the front flap back on itself.


The sentiment Sue chose is from a set called B.R.A.V.O. Just look at all the choices in this set for congratulation anyone (young or old) on any accomplishment. The vertical "congratulations" is perfect for this space. 

By the Way - BRAVO is on the retirement list.

Stampin'UP!'s catalog transition is only 2 weeks away and many people are scrambling to get items they've had on their Wish List. 

Thanks for Stopping by: Take a minute and browse previous posts. If you see anything you like I'm happy to help you get the product or just to consult and explain further how the project was made . . . its all about having fun with our hobby.
