Simply Zinnia Book Binding Z Fold

View of card laying flat

Each month, I host a virtual team meeting for all levels of my Stampin’ Up! team of Kim’s Paper Krafters. We celebrate birthdays and acknowledge Stampin’ Up! anniversaries, promotions, and achievements; catch up on Stampin’ Up! news and promotions; and create a mystery stamping project. 

Today, I’m sharing our April mystery card. It’s called the Book Binding Z Fold, and it’s something I found on YouTube and Pinterest. It uses Stampin’ Up!’s Simply Zinnia stamp set and the Flowering Zinnias 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. These products are part of Stampin’ Up!’s Online Exclusives, a large selection of products found only on the online store. Visit the store often to see what’s there.

Here are some cutting measurements for this fun fold. Be sure to watch the video below as I share step-by-step instructions for creating this card from my craft room in Mesa, Arizona.

  • 4-1/4” x 11” cardstock for card base
  • 4-1/4” x 3-1/4” cardstock for card front (these first two work best if they’re the same color)
  • 1” x 4” Designer Series Paper pattern #1
  • 2” x 4” Designer Series Paper pattern #2
  • 3” x 4” Designer Series Paper pattern #3
  • 2” x 4” Basic White cardstock for inside
  • 2” x 4” Designer Series Paper pattern #4 (optional)

Here’s a look at the card standing.
