Double Zig Zag Card

Today I am I’m so happy to be sharing a card with you that I have created using papers from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection from Maja Design. I love creating cards for all occasions. This is a double zig zag card that is generic at the moment but can be personalised at later date simply by stamping a sentiment when the occasion arises.

The card closes by the use of this simple band which wraps around the card. I have used a Stampin’ Up! border punch and embellished it with some Green Tara flowers and a lovely Prima Rose. I have also used Memory Box Amira Flourish die to add some elegance.

Here is the inside of the card. It has a series of panels and you can see that I have embellished some. They need to be flat so that the card can close.

The centre panel lifts up where you can record your message and add your stamped sentiment. I edged the outside with some Kaisercraft White Pearls.

All of my papers are inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Here I added some Green Tara roses and I used a Martha Stewart leaf punch to create these leaves which I inked with some Prima Dark Bark chalk ink. I also added a Cheery Lynn butterfly and added some Kaisercraft blush pearls. I also used Peaceful Butterfly Wings from Memory Box along with one of my favourite dies Elegant Scrollwork.

I used Heartfelt Creations Timeless Armour dies to create the lattice heart and added used some of my scraps to create this flower. I used my EK Success daisy punches and added a pearl centre. 

The image of the girl is so adorable! I played around with one of the Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy dies and cut away the parts that I needed to frame her.
