It is time to break out your papers and scissors and create a Valentine’s Day card or two. On the blog, Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Cecilia Zertuche teaches us how to create a Z Fold Pop Up Card with a Dimensional Frame. Cecilia added romance to this love themed card by adding fussy cut flowers from our Blossom paper collection. Be sure to check out her genius video tutorial to see how it all came together.
Z Fold Card with Dimensional Frame
“Hello G45ers, Valentine’s day is always a good excuse to make some cards for our loved ones, so I made this beautiful Z fold card but also added an extra flap to attach a dimensional frame, and I assure you this will be a gift forever with the picture on it!
For this project I used the beautiful BLOSSOM paper collection, here´s the supply list:
Matte pearl gems (back in stock Spring 2021)
Ornate metal keys (back in stock Spring 2021)
Aleene’s quick dry tacky glue
Fine Tec pearlescent colours inks
Distress inks, brown and black.
I prepared this appendix to show you how to cut the dimensional frame:
And all the instructions are in the video tutorial. I hope you like it and give it a try 🙂
Tip: When adding liquid glue, use your little finger to spread it, in that way the rest of your fingers will be clean, as well as your project. Don’t forget to get before you start a project, a baby wipe, it is really handy.
Tip: Because of the shape of this card, and the intention of making a garden in the pop up element, I suggest you to use a pot below the opening flat, it’s easier to hold it and add the flowers.
