Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Fancy fold cards are fun for me to create. It’s outside of the normal greeting card and makes it exciting for someone to receive them for a special occasion. I’ve been playing with the Cozy Cottage stamp set lately, so I created a Cozy Cottage Double Z Fold box card from one of Bronwyn’s amazing tutorials at AddINKtive Designs.

Cozy Cottage stamp set
Fancy fold cards are not always a giant undertaking but they can be intimidating. Here is how I approach each project; the finished card will fit into a standard envelope, so…… it can’t be too big a project for me to tackle. Putting it into perspective is a big help. Plus, Bronwyn’s tutorials are really easy to follow, step by step and loads of photos.
I had a vision of this card in my mind for weeks. From the colors I used and the dies. I worked at it in stages, first doing all the coloring and then fussy cutting. Each time, with smiles and grins because Cozy Cottage stamp set is wonderful 🙂 .
Tips for this project
This Cozy Cottage Double Z Fold box card design is perfect when I want to send a card that will be more than a card. Extremely sturdy and standing on it’s own, it really makes a statement.
The Cozy Cottage images are stamped in Smoky Slate ink onto Watercolor paper, then colored with an Aqua Painter and ink pads. To help the lines hold the color, I used the Stamparatus to isolate a few areas of the large stamp and get a nice layer of color.
The fussy cut flowers are adhered to a box section of the fold. The Watercolor paper holds up really nice!
I first die cut the watercolor panels, laid them side by side on my grid paper, then stamped the large image.
