Flight & Airy bird-themed Z Fold card


  • Stampin' Up! Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper - A Sale-A-Bration Selection
  • Sale-A-Bration includes Two Joining Bonuses until 29 February 
  • First day to order Sweet Springtime February 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit with a unique box to match the season

I'm thrilled to share another creation featuring the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper, a Sale-A-Bration selection. What makes this card special?  This is a fancy Z-Fold Greeting Card using prints and images from this delightful Sale-A-Bration paper selection.  You'll love creating this fancy-fold card for someone special.  Depending on your sentiment, you can use this for birthdays, Valentine's Day, or thinking-of-you.  

Z Fold greeting card using Stampin' Up! Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper

The star of this project is the bird-themed papers in the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper pack. For the background color, I'm using Flirty Flamingo, which matches images in the designer series paper, and then layered the Flirty Flamingo with the prints creating multiple layers that expand when opened.  The fun fold adds an extra element of surprise and creativity to your cardmaking, making it stand out.   I fussy cut images of bird(s) on branches from the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper to use on the image layer of my card, along with die cuts from the Timeless Arrangement Dies. I used sentiments from the Seasonal Branches Stamp Set and from the Bee My Valentine Stamp Set, and added a couple of Flirty Flamingo Rainbow Adhesive-Backed Dots as accents.  You'll find the cutting dimensions for this card below.   With the launch of Sale-A-Bration 2024, from now until February 29, for each $50 or $100 you spend, you can select Free items from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  Use my sample cards as a starting point to create your own heartfelt masterpieces your loved ones will treasure.

    The basecard for today's card is Flirty Flamingo Cardstock.  Then I created another layer of z-folded of Flirty Flamingo.  See the cutting and scoring dimensions below.   Then, I layered one of the Flight & Airy 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper prints onto the front-facing layers and Basic White layers on the inside layers to use as a writing surface.

    Next, I created the front image panel of Flirty Flamingo and Basic White Cardstock.  Then I used the stamps from the Seasonal Branches Stamp Set and from the Bee My Valentine Stamp Set to stamp sentiments in Boho Blue onto the front image panel.  I used a Lost Lagoon die cut from one of the dies in the Timeless Arrangement Dies to add more interest.  Finally, I selected bird images on a branch from a different print in Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper, and fussy cut them before adding them to my card. The final touch was adding a couple of Flirty Flamingo Dots to the corner of the image panel.  These are from the Rainbow Adhesive-Backed Dots from the January-April 2024 Mini Catalog.

    Cutting & Scoring dimensions:
    • Flirty Flamingo - 4-1/4 x 11, Scored at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2"
    • Flirty Flamingo - 3-1/2 X 10-3/4, Scored at 3-1/2" and 6-1/2"
    • Flirty Flamingo - 3-3/4" X 2-3/4"
    • Basic White - 4" X 5-1/4", 3-1/4" X 4", and 2-1/2" X 3-1/2"
    • Designer Series Paper:  2-1/2 X 4", 3-1/4" X 3-1/4", Bird on branch image
    • 3 X 2-1/4" Lost Lagoon
