Z-Fold Card and Ruffles!

Hi everyone. Whew.... it's been a long two weeks. I've been out of town for work in Lexington, KY and Irupato, Mexico so it's been a while since my last post.
 Today I'm going to post two cards. The first one is called a Z-fold which found on a blog by Carla Bazhenow. I changed it up a little by using two colors instead of one; Crushed Curry CS & Rich Razzelberry DSP [FAV of mine] and this a color of which I'll never tire. Here is what mine looks like.

I think the two colors together are so rich looking. Don't you?
Here is the card closed.

I used the Circle Scallop Die #2, the scallop punch, and also learned how make a scallop inbetween the using a 1 3/8" punch first then going around the circle with the slit punch! How cool is that. I used the polka dot rich razzleberry ribbon with dots showing, where as Carla turned her ribbon to the plain side. I just couldn't cover those adorable dots. I LOVE polka dots and I'm going to miss them as I heard the polka dot ribbons will be discontinued. [Say it isn't so]. The full directions can be found on Carla's blog.

The next card I saw on my upline's blog over at  Canopy Crafts and just had to give it a try as well. The following is my 'prototype' and certainly could have been more precise,  but I just wanted to get the idea down when it was fresh in my mind. I do plan to use the Ruffle technique again and again.

Well that's it for now!

Hootie says "Thanks for stopping - what a Hoot!" and please leave comment; I always like to hear what you think.

Great cards, Diane! I, too, will be so sad to lose Crushed Curry... Thanks for the shout-out!

Diane, love the idea you shared of using the slip punch to get an in-between size scallop, great tip.
The Z-fold is a nice change from our regular fold cards too.
Great cards.
