Z fold cards using framelits

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Today I am going to show you a couple of cards that I have made using some of Stampin' Up!'s framelits to create a simple version of the swing cards that are so popular right now. While my cards do not "swing", at first glance they look similar and are very easy to make using the framelits you already have on hand.

This was one of the cards that I taught at my regular monthly class.
Here is it opened up...

To make this card you need a 29.8cm x 10.5cm piece of card. In landscape position, score at 7.4cm and 14.9cm.
The 14.9cm score line folds the card in half and then the 7.4cm score line, folds back on itself to create the Z shape you see in the photo above. If you open the card up, you will see two quarter sections and one half section.

It is the front quarter section that you want to place the framelit on. Line the centre of the framelit with the 7.4cm score line and line the top plate of the Big Shot with this score line also...

Because the top plate only covers half of the framelit it will only cut out half.

Here is another Z fold card using the Bright and Beautiful stamp set. The finished card is 13.4cm square.

Here is the inside...
