Z-Fold Card Tutorial with Rene'

Today I am going to share with you a tutorial for a Z fold card.  I’ve seen many of these cards in many styles, especially on Pinterest.  I adapted the fold to lie horizontally, not vertically, because the image I used fit better in a horizontal position.

For this tutorial you will need an 8 ½ x 11 piece of cardstock.  I used kraft colored cardstock.
Lay the 8 ½ x 11 horizontally and score vertically at 2 ¾ and then at 5 ½ inches from the left.  Then score down the middle horizontally at 4 ¼ .

Now cut out the top left corner that is the size 4 ¼ x 5 ½ .

Fold down the top right flap which forms the card base.

Here is another view.

Now you can add paper and embellishments to the card.

Here is the card opened up.

And here is the card with the front right flap lifted up – where you can put a greeting or sentiment.
