Ok – I will admit it – this z fold box card IS over the top! I went a little nuts, what can I say? But the BASIC form of this Z fold box card can be used in about a zillion ways, as complex or as simple as YOU want to make yours, and it will STILL be a showstopper! For this card I used the Rubbernecker Circle Lattice, Window w/ Pierce, Tall Terracotta Pots, Tall Buckets, Apple Cart. Watering Can, Leaf Group, Large Ivy, Small Ivy, Flower Buds and Small Flowers #1.
The Z Fold Card Base and Box
- Use the pre-scored Z Fold Box Card kit to create the base.
- Cut 2 2.5″ x 4.00″ designer paper layers and one 5.25″ x 4.00″ layer and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
- Cut the Window w/Pierce and Circle Lattice sections using white cardstock.
- Attach the lattice sections to the card base using double stick tape and attach the window using mounting tape along the top sections and double stick tape along the bottom section.
- Score the 11 inch strip of white cardstock from the kit at 5.50″ and 8.25″.
- Attach the strip to the card base using double stick tape on both ends of the strip.
- Apply double stick tape to the tabbed ends of four box inserts and attach them inside the box.
The Terracotta Pots, Buckets, Watering Can and Apple Cart
- Cut the terracotta pots using yellow cardstock, the bucket and watering can using gray cardstock and the apple cart using Kraft and black cardstock.
- Use Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge ink and mini applicators to color the terracotta pots, bucket and watering can.
- Apply Vintage Photo ink to the Apple Cart using a mini applicator.
- Attach the bucket handle to the bucket and the wheel to the apple cart using glossy accents.
The Flowers and Foliage
- Use green cardstock to cut the foliage sections.
- Cut the small flowers using bright pink, pale pink, yellow, aqua, purple and yellow cardstock.
- Apply dots of color to the some of the flowers using Distress Inks and mini applicator.
- Wild Honey ink for the yellow flowers.
- Worn Lipstick ink for the pink flowers.
- Dusty Concord ink for the purple flowers.
- Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and a molding pad.
- Attach several large ivy sections to the lattice walls using glossy accents.
- Fill the flower pots with small and large ivy sections and attach the pieces to the back using glossy accents.
- Attach flowers to the flower pot foliage and lattice wall foliage using glossy accents.
Assemble the Card Pieces
- Begin assembling the card by attaching the back flower pots to the window section using pieces of mounting tape.
- Attach ivy and leaf group branches and pots to the box insert sections using glossy accents.
- Use glossy accents to attach flower pots to the cart and attach it to the card front using pieces of mounting tape.
