A Guy Greetings Z-fold Technique Father's Day Card

With time flying by so quickly, I thought I would start making some Father's Day cards.  I find them super easy to come up with when you use the "Guy Greetings" set.  There's lots of images in there to play with. And lots of words too!  Grandpa, uncle, brother and husband too!!!  See, I told you there are lots, plus other words to use on top and inside the card. 

For my card I used the "Z-fold" technique. It's an easy and fun technique fold.  Cut your card stock 4-1/4" x 11".  Score and fold at 5-1/2" and then score and fold the front of the card at 2-3/4".  Fold the card as shown in the photo.  It's easy to do.  Just fold the card in half like you normally would.  Then take the edge of the front of the card and fold it towards the center fold.  

I used the "Going Places" paper stack for my decorative papers.  I cut the inside piece 4" x 5-1/4" and the front piece 2-1/2" x 4".

I stamped my car and punched it out with the 2-1/2" circle punch and then I used the 2-3/4" circle Framelit.  Now the tricky part, well, maybe not so tricky as much as paying attention!  Make sure you only tape the part of the circle that will be stuck to the front panel.  The first time I made one of these, I had taped the image onto the circle and then I turned it over and taped the back of that whole circle! My card was stuck shut!!! LOL  You've been informed ahead of time!!!

This is a fun fold technique to do and it also makes a SUPER quick and fun card!
