Sweet Cherries Double Z-Fold Card Make-It Monday

Good evening my fabulous Stampin' Friends! How are you today?  I've got a very pretty, and super fun card to share with you today!! It's a Double Z-Fold Fancy Fold Card!

What you'll need: 

-Poppy Parade Cardstock (Card base):
11" x 4 1/4" (scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2")
11" x 1 1/2" (scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2")

-Pacific Point Cardstock (Layer #1): 
5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
2 5/8" x 4 1/8" (cut 2)
5 3/8" x 1 3/8"
2 5/8" x 1 3/8" (cut 2)

- Basic White Cardstock (Top layer): 
5 1/4" x 4" (cut 2)
2 1/2" x 4" (cut 2)
5 1/4" x 1 1/2" 
2 1/2" x 1 1/4" (cut 2)
7" x 2 1/2" (scrap to cut 3 cherries)
3 1/8" x 1 1/4" 

I know it looks like a lot of pieces, but it's actually just a very simple (but beautiful) Fancy Fold Card that you're gonna love!

First things first: Attach all the Pacific Point layers to their coordinating Poppy Parade sections on the card base. 

Next, take the little white strips that coordinate with the Poppy Parade Card Strip and stamp them in Pacific Point ink using the little wicker basket stamp. Just like you see here. Once they're stamped, they can be attached to their coordinating areas. 

On the big 7" long scrap of Basic White Cardstock, we need to stamp and punch three sets of cherries. I stamped the cherries themselves in Poppy Parade ink and the stems and leaves in Garden Green. 

 If you create a template first (like shown here) you can stamp all your parts at once and punch them in one go. It saves a lot of time and paper!

While you have the cherry stamps out, go ahead and stamp a background on the three Basic White pieces that go on the card base. Once they're stamped, you can attach them to their respective places.  

I like to use Tear & Tape on each of the two ends of the long strip, to attach to the card nice and firm. I don't want that strip to pop off the card! 

On the 3 1/8" scrap of Basic White Cardstock, I stamped the word "SWEET" and fussy cut it out.  I attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

The cherries were assembled on top of the basket weave stamped strip. The middle one is popped up with dimensionals and I've attached a dimensional behind the area where the leaves are attached too. 

I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add the finishing touches to this card. I really like how it turned out! To make a place for writing a sweet note, I used the remaining 5 1/4" x 4" Basic White piece and stamped a cherry (with stem) onto it. This piece is attached to the backside of the card. It's a perfect place to write a loving note to your recipient!
