EASY Z-FOLD CARD AND STAMPIN' BLENDS

When I find a z-fold card that's not only beautiful, but easy to make, it makes me soooo happy!  This is a card recipe you can use over and over with different designer series paper and colors.  But today, I'm using Stampin' Blends with True Love DSP to make this stunning card.  This card recipe is from Missy Shipman of Glad Heart Stampers and Jackie Bolhuis from Klompenstampers.  This will be a go-to card design that you can use over and over. Here are a few cards:

I have used Stampin' Blends markers to color the True Love designer series paper.  In my video tutorial at the bottom of the page, I show you how I use the light and dark blends in each color set.

HOW TO MAKE A TRIANGLE TREAT BOX

This is an adorable treat box you will want to fill with something sweet and give to someone to say "Happy Birthday" or "Just Because!" Inspiration for this is from Ronda Wade who made some Santa-style ones for Christmas. This one was for Valentine's day, and mine is filled with Hershey Strawberry Chocolates.  What will you fill yours with?

2 Flap Fun Fold Card With Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set

I just love the Sweet Strawberry stamp set!  It is a little taste of early summer for me in the middle of February, if you know what I mean. The images are beautiful and the sentiments and font are lovely. This stamp set comes with a coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch, and there is beautiful coordinating DSP in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.
