Mo Manning Home 'Tweet' Home

I thought I would try something a little different on this card.  This is a fold I call a Z-fold.  The left panel folds back on it's self and forms the letter Z.

I began with Mo Manning's Home 'Tweet' Home digi image, which Mo gave to members of her Paper Craft Planet group when they hit 650 members.  I sized it to fit my Spellbinder's Nestabilities Circle die, then printed it onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Wreath - E21, E33, Y15
Twine and sign - E42
Hearts - R35
Lovebirds - B12, E00

I used a white Glaze pen to add the dots on the scallop die cut.  This is what I call a Z-fold card.  It closes to an A2, 4.25 x 5.5 inches but it is kind of hinged.

I cut my card stock 5.5 x 11.25 inches, then scored at 4.25" , 6.25" and 8.25" which leaves a 3" flap to add the image. Click on the image to the right for a closer view, can you see how the front is folded back on itself?

And here is an image of the card flat.  Just something a little different.  I like how the card stands up and adding the circle on the inside gives you lots of room for a sentiment or personal note.

Oh and here is a pic of the card closed, 4.25 x 5.5 inches. It is kind of a surprise for the recipient when they take it out of the envelope and see how it opens.  Thanks for stopping by.
