Here is my card for today, I had fun trying the Double-Z Fold and adding the lace borders. The two sided Heartfelt Creation designer paper is perfect for this fold, I made two cards with one sheet of cardstock.






Here is a picture of the second card I made with the same sheet of cardstock:

Z- Fold as pictured.  I used the designer paper with the columns and flower pot from the Vintage Floret Paper Collection, you can make 2 cards with one 12” x 12” sheet of paper.  Ink edges with distress ink and adhere to card base.
Using Antique Gray cardstock, die cut 2 doilies and 2 lace borders from the Vintage Lace Accents die set.  Adhere borders to card sides and ink edges to distress.  Adhere doilies to top left and bottom right of the front flaps using foam squares.
On Antique Gray cardstock with Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp flowers and leaves, die cut with matching dies. Ink edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink for the flower petals and Forest Moss for the leaves. Shape petals and layer to form roses. Die cut more leaves and swirls using Spellbinders dies and color with Forest Moss distress ink. Arrange flowers, leaves and swirls to both doilies as shown.
