November 21, 2016 - Z-fold Box card - POTW The House that Stamps Built

This week it is my turn to do the project of the week over at The House that Stamps Built  and I chose a very popular fold for my project.  When I saw these   images over at Repeat Impressions  the cute penguins Penguin Trio 8806 - N,  I thought they looked like they were singing - so I used the sentiment Let Heaven 413-H.


Repeat Impression Stamps Let Heaven 413-H  and Penguin Trio 8806-N
Memento Black Ink, copic markers, White card stock,  Christmas designer paper, punch/note - scissors, glue, and a photo copied song Joy to the World.  

This card is really about the scoring and folding of the cardstock - start with an 8 1/2 by 11 card stock  and cut length wise on the 4 1/4 mark.  Score at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2,

Then cut another piece of your base card stock 1 1/2 in. by 11. Score at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4.

Designer paper is cut - for the band 3 strips  5 1/4 x 1 1/4  and (2) 2 1/2 x 1/4
Designer paper is cut - for the base card (2) 2 1/2 x 4 and (1) 5 1/4 x 4

 Fold your score line with mountain fold then valley fold.

Color your focal image - which I colored with copic markers and then fussy cut these cuties.  I stamped and used an oval spellbinder for my sentiment.  

Apply adhesive or glue of your choice on the 1 1/2 inch band on the backside on the left for 2 3/4 inc. and on the right again 2 3/4 inch. Turn band over and apply about 1 inch above bottom of card - apply to the left front - and then to the far right front - the piece in the middle is not glued.   

I added some embellishments and took the photo a little from the top looking down so you can see the box shape in the middle.  This fold is all the in  right now and REPEAT IMPRESSIONS has so many stamps  that will work for this style -lets see what you come up with using this fold.

How cute! I love those penguins. They are so cute. The idea of using the words to Joy To The World is a great idea. What a fun fold card!
