Donut Z Fold Card

Who loves donuts on the weekends?  

Not me.  I like them every day. 😜

I created this Z Fold card for my January card workshop.  It's a pretty simple card to put together though there's extra folds.  

This card really is a cinch to put together.  The stamp set is from the Sugar Rush Cardmaking Bundle that includes thin cut dies that diecut the donut circle, frosting and the banner.  The grey "FUN SWEET YUM!" and the green hearts are the coordinating Sugar Rush Washi Tape!

And... this thin cut bundle is on SALE this month for just $17.96.  That makes the thin cuts just $4.01 more than buying the stamp set alone!  What a steal!

Below is an assembly video that gives all the details to create this card.
Below are the cardstock measurements
Cardstock:  5.5" wide and 11" long Score it at 2.75" and 5.5" from 1 end of the 11" wide piece.
Now cut a 1.25 x 11" wide strip from the scored cardstock.  The other piece will be 4.25 x 11 and the card base.
Front Panel 2.5" x 4"
Back Panel (donuts) 5.25" x 4"
White Daisy Cardstock for the Z-strip 5.25 x 1, 2.5 x 1, 2.5 x 1

NOTEs:  I like to score once when I'm making one or two of these cards.  If you like, you can score a 11x11 piece of cardstock and cut it into pieces to make 2 cards.  Either way, I will do all of my scoring before I cut the paper into strips for the card base and the Z-strip.
If you want to really conserve paper, make the base only 4x11 and you'll fit 3 card bases from 1 piece of cardstock and use a part of a second piece of cardstock to cut the 1.25x11 strips for the Z-strip.

This card folds flat for mailing.  It doesn't need any chunky embellishments and that makes my mail carrier so very happy!

For a little extra sparkle, I dotted the sprinkles with our CTMH Clear Shimmer Brush.  

So this month, get any of the CTMH Thin Cuts for 25% off!  

And don't forget, we have a Tea-rrific Stamp of the Month that is just $5 with a $50 purchase!  Sale and Clearance items count towards this purchase!  Isn't that wonderful?
