Bloomin Marvelous February Play Day Project

Since February is my birthday month, I try to make four birthday cards.  Because it falls during Sale-a-Bration, I wanted to use SAB sets as well.  For our second project, we made a Z-fold card using the SAB set BLOOMIN MARVELOUS.  This particular card was inspired by one I saw that was designed by Heidi Boos and posted on Stampin Connection (a Stampin Up demo only web site) on January 22, 2013.

This card is kind of hard to photograph, but it is really easy to make.  The base cardstock is 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2 and 2-3/4.  Fold it as a regular card, then fold the front section in half and it will stand up so that when you see it from the top it resembles a "Z"!

Some other views:

I added a panel to this section of the card with the sentiment, which gives room to write a short message without worrying that it will show when the card is folded.  My friend, Sallie, suggested that it would be a great gift card holder, just attach a gift card with a removable glue dot in this section.  I thought that was a great idea!
